The House of Representatives has finally put forward something for which I have waited since childhood: the Department of Peacebuilding!

I have not the time right now to peruse the whole thing, but I do wish to call your attention to Sec. 102(g)(1)(C):

EDUCATIONAL RESPONSIBILITIES.—The Secretary shall—with the support of, and in consultation with, the United States Institute of Peace, develop a peace education curriculum that includes studies of the patriarchal structure of society and the inherent violence of such structure in the shaping of relationships and institutions.

By the pricking of my thumbs. Something tells me this "peace education curriculum" won't be so peaceful for the hapless young men that lie in its path.
