What is peace?

What Does peace Mean

Originating from the Latin term pax , peace can be defined in a positive sense and in a negative sense. In a positive sense, peace is a state of tranquility and stillness ; On the other hand, in a negative sense, peace is the absence of war or violence .

At the political level and for international law , peace is the situation and mutual relationship of those who are not at war. In these cases, it is a question of social peace , where good relations are maintained between communities of individuals.
The symbol of peace is recognized worldwide.
Peace between countries
Throughout the story, social peace was not always considered a good thing. Some peoples, such as the Vikings , based their development on the looting of neighboring communities, which is why they exalted the warriors and their virtues.

Peace can also refer to the treaty or agreement that is established between rulers to end a warlike conflict. On the other hand, we can say that the Pax romana ( Roman peace) is a concept that refers to a government that exercises unilateral power, without controls and without respect for the rights of citizens.
The concept at the individual level and in religion
When peace refers to the individual plane, it usually refers to an inner state devoid of negative feelings such as hatred or anger. A subject at peace is one who is calm with himself and, therefore, with others.
For religion , peace is also a salutation , since it is a value that one wishes for himself and for others. That is why expressions such as "peace be with you" are used and, in some Masses, it includes a kiss on the face of the person next to them.
The white dove represents peace.
Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity of Mexico
In some countries where social and political conflicts are severe and have led to the territory being constantly repudiated by war and violence, movements that advocate for peace are born and try to end this state of violence and insecurity . Such is the case of the Movement for Peace with Justice and Dignity that originated in 2011 in Mexico.

Due to certain decisions taken by the Mexican government, in its fight against drug trafficking, many reprisals have been generated that have led to such a state of uncertainty in society that it has been necessary for civil society to rise up with a slogan that reads " Die Better »And which consists of a satire on the one posed by the State in this fight against the drug market.
This movement was born in April 2011 and was promoted by the poet Javier Sicilia, who, after suffering the death of his son (assassinated by individuals who were part of organized crime) brought together all Mexicans to demonstrate against violence, both from criminal groups and that carried out by the security forces that depended on the State of Mexico.
Many organizations that fight for the achievement of human rights in Mexican territory and outside it, joined this movement and said adhesion concluded with the signing of a national pact against insecurity , signed on June 10 of that year in Ciudad Juárez. . Little by little they were getting closer to the voice of all the inhabitants, getting the State itself to agree to openly dialogue about the strategy against organized crime and on June 23, 2011 the Dialogue for Peace was held in the castle of Chapultepec.
At that meeting, the state was required to clarify murders and disappearances , to end this strategy based on violence and to take new measures to combat corruption and impunity and rebuild the damaged social fabric . Despite this, these demands have not been fully met and the fight continues between military groups that depend on the State and people belonging to organized crime and delinquency.
