That is an important clarification.  _Absolute_ peace.  The paradox of 
human existence is that sometimes the long-term goal of peace requires 
turmoil in the short-term.  This is one of the central themes of the

I shall elaborate on this in a post in a reply in the "kshatriya dharma 
according to manu smriti and its interpretation today?" thread.
