Work Studies and Careers for World Peace.
Arnold, Dwight L.
"National militarism" is fearfully costly, terribly wasteful and horribly dangerous. The revolt of youth is a major concern of adults today. Yet guidance people as well as other adult leaders seem to be largely unaware of the difficult position in which we have placed our youth. Institutions extoll the value of freedom and concern for people and then youth are sent to Viet Nam to kill and be killed. Guidance workers now pay little attention to the problems of war and world peace. While there is little information available on careers and work for world peace, much information is available on the national military. Funds are greatly lacking in world peace work areas. Vigorous action is needed to meet this crisis for our youth and for the world. A list of needed projects is listed, including: (1) studies of careers with various international agencies; (2) studies of part-time life interests related to world peace, and (3) studies and writers for counselors and youth on what can be done for world peace. The vast energies and capacities of our youth can be used to destroy the world or to build a better world. Are the youth really given a choice? (KJ)
