Blogphilosophy: does #peace, pacifist education exist in #MOOC?

Inge de Waard, Arthur Fontaine's Blog, Aug 07, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

In the last week I have sadly deleted dozens of Facebook contacts, all of whom have in one way or another promoted the war effort of one or another side through the posting of graphic images, propaganda, or justifications. With Inge de Waard I ask, is there nobody who will promote peace? "No matter how hard I try I cannot keep war and conflict out of my mind’s eye... And in all honesty, there is not a single course of action I seem to be able to take. The powers that be are using all their influences - no matter from which point of view - to instill all of us with the thought that 'war is necessary and good'." The same influences pervade the world of open online learning, she observes. "So can someone please build a peace MOOC?"
