Quote by Richard Milhous Nixon
The greatest honor history can bestow is that of peacemaker.
This quote suggests that the highest recognition a person can receive in the annals of history is being recognized as a peacemaker. It implies that those who work towards resolving conflicts, fostering harmony, and promoting peace are esteemed and respected. Their actions are seen as noble, as they contribute to the well-being of humanity. Being known as a peacemaker implies that one's efforts to bring people and nations together have had a meaningful and lasting impact on society.
The goals of corporate consumerism require that we accept its values, that we fail to seek better alternatives, that we reject the possibility of finding better alternatives ('psycho-babble'), that we fail even to see the existence of a problem to be solved, that we therefore live according to an entirely inadequate set of values, that we therefore live in complete confusion, that we therefore suffer profound and devastating psychological, physical and environmental disease; that we suffer and, if necessary, die for profit.
