Being optimistic, the future of the peace movement could turn out to be very bright. It will not score its victories through rallies and protests. Instead, there will be a shift in consciousness across the board, from left to right, just as Russian consciousness shifted away from Communism. Communism was an ideology that could only survive by believing in an illusion. America's invincible militarism is exactly the same, and as we swallow the humiliation of the Iraq invasion and assimilate its lessons, the American people will choose to live in reality instead. The ideology of unilateral war-making is not going to recover from this setback any time soon
