Peace and the "Beloved Community" in America and Beyond: A Kingian Approach

Mouhamed DIOP [6]

Abstract: This study purports that Martin Luther King, Jr.?s high ideal of a "beloved community" is reachable. The world can build a community immune to ugly racism, extreme materialism, militarism that has gone mad with nuclear weapons and atomic bombs, and international sanctions that wreck economies. The world can build such a "world house" community with humanistic construction materials using the cement of love, the concrete of truth, the rebar of justice and the beams of beautiful moral values. In a globalized world torn between the betrayal of its own principles with a high blood pressure of words about the wellness of humankind and an anemia of humanitarian deeds, revisiting the Kingian peace approach becomes relevant. This paper is the logical sequel of my previous paper on the giant triplets of racism, materialism and militarism (Diop, 2024) against the triple goods of length, breadth and height of life.
