I seem to remember Saotome sensei saying once, "Peace, peace, peace, peace, peace! So many people going around talking about world peace -- when they're not even at peace themselves!" My take on this was that in order to change the world, one has to have the ability and wherewithal to change oneself...

It's kind of like in aikido; you don't try to move uke -- you move yourself...
