One of the catchphrases of the 19th Century Peace Movement (also known as the Peace through Law Movement) was "Organize the World!". In this show, we focus on that phrase, discussing the organization that peace activists called for, which included the creation of laws, of new courts, the education both of legal professionals and the public, and the equality of men and women (among other things). Our objective in this show is to have the listener appreciate the different components of organizing the world towards peace. Grounding this discussion is an essay by Edwin D. Mead, originally published in 1898, called "Organize the World!". Access that on our show resources page at:
