Summary:
The importance of rethinking media and entertainment from a nonkilling perspective is self-explanatory. In "Nonkilling Global Political Science", Glenn Paige pointed out how violence is "socially learned and culturally reinforced". This social effort is by no means casual or due to some innate taste or demand for violence content historically considered repugnantbut rather, "violent media socialization is useful for a state in need of professional patriotic killers". Nonkilling creativity throuought the ages also shows how a life-enhancing media is possible. At the Center for Global Nonkilling we sincerely hope that the contributions compiled in this volume may help shape an alternative to the lethal ideology that permates media that may enhance the value of life.

Summary:
The time has come to start anew history in this respect. We must establish reverence for life as the cornerstone of civilization: reverence for life not only by individuals, but also by institutions, foremost among them nations. Institutions were created originally for the good and survival of the people. This is their main justification and merit. They have no right to kill or to develop and stockpile incredible arsenals of weapons meant to kill millions of people, possibly all humanity. And the same nations come to the UN and dare to speak about human rights! Do these include the right to life and the right not to kill? Perhaps if we approach the question of disarmament from the fundamental principle of reverence for life, we might achieve better progress (from Robert Muller's Epilogue).
