: : Can someone please help me find the meaning of this quote
: : "If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there'd be peace" John Lennon

: It means if we demanded peace instead of demanding cheap gasoline for our SUVs, we would have peace. We say we want peace and an end to world hunger but our actions are all geared towards acquiring more and more worldly goods. The politicians act accordingly.

"Actions speak louder than words." ESC is right. We hear much talk about peace but see little action. If peace were at the top of everyone's 'to do' list, Lennon is saying, instead of getting More, MOre , MORe STUFF, then peace could be a reality.
