3.3 Arms trade

The homo sapiens has tried to survive others through violence, destruction and rape. Also annihilating other beings is an important way of life for human beings. That’s the way the own genes can win the battle of the survival of the fittests. We share the neurotransmitter “vasopressin” with all primates and this vasopressin makes us defend our territory. A good thing to do in the past. But now it causes dangerous (civil)wars and leads us to destroy humans in an extraordinary way. Mostly by killing innocent women and children. By whom? By MEN who carry testosterone and make this vasopressin dangerous in stead of protective.

The book “How to change our human nature” offers insight in the way human behavior is evoked by neurotransmitters and hormones. More important: this book shows also methods to change our human behavior. This book can be bought at Lulu.com as a ePub or as a printed book.

Both versions are the same, but the ePub is cheaper and has the advantage of links to the internet in the tekst.

In 1996 a group of Nobel Laureates first set out their vision for a global accord to tackle the problem of international arms transfers. Seventeen years later, an Arms Trade Treaty was adopted by the General Assembly ofthe United Nations (UN) in New York

In some parts of the world, it’s easier to get an automatic rifle than a glass of clean drinking water. Is this just the way it is? Samantha Nutt, doctor and founder of the international humanitarian organization War Child, explores the global arms trade — and suggests a bold, common sense solution for ending the cycle of violence. “War is ours,” she says. “We buy it, sell it, spread it and wage it. We are therefore not powerless to solve it.”

But the situation in arm trades is quickly going the wrong way: more countries sell and buy more arms, still more dangerous and more deadly. See this website: SIPRI is an independent international institute dedicated to research into conflict, armaments, arms control and disarmament. Established in 1966, SIPRI provides data, analysis and recommendations, based on open sources, to policymakers, researchers, media and the interested public. Based in Stockholm, SIPRI also has presences in Beijing and Washington, DC and is regularly ranked among the most respected think tanks worldwide.
