Peace assumes a high level of equity, an equiarchy, and the road to peace is paved with the acceptance of the Other as an equal partner in negotiation and dialogue. But if one or more of them are informed by a highly inequitable deep structure sustained by a deep culture, peace by peaceful means becomes more difficult.

These conflicts are Gordian knots that are not to be cut by brutal violence, but to be unraveled.

But history sediments layers of trauma, not only glory, in the collective memory.
