DEBATE (French = 'de' = 'undo' + 'bate' = 'the fight') DIALECTIC

BOTH SIDES NOW, EQUAL-TIME-RECORDED-DIALOGUES
DISARMAMENT AND DEBATE
Disarmament can come when every person on the earth has a 'dialectic' right to formally 'debate' (French = 'de' = 'undo' + 'bate' = 'the fight') and to publish results. Debate is held within affiliation or stakeholder groups and then between these groups.

We all know that the word is mightier than the sword because truth is one of the higher human values. Dialectics can be implemented in all commerce, industry, government, institutions, schools, in the militaries, police and among all nations. 'Satyagraha' meaning 'truth-search' coined by Mohandas Gandhi is a foundation of sustainable peace.

However dialectics won't suffice unless words are translated into actions. 'Livelihood' is a still higher human value. 'Welcome' for all to become in livelihood generation is the mark of true peace, civility and sustainability. Welcome only occurs where there is recognition of human capacities and only possible through comprehensive accounting for all contributions.

'Indigenous' (Latin = 'self-generating') peoples of the whole world organised Domestic economy in multi-home complexes such as the Pueblo (Townhouse-like) and Longhouse (Apartment-like) buildings where critical numbers of people as creators and consumers together interact. Critical numbers generate sustainable economies in which Commerce and Industry are subcategories but not pre-dominant.
