Let's have a crazy idea.
Imagine that one in a million men is a hidden Gandhi or Mandela.
This would ensure that for all serious conflicts of our time, there'd be a couple, often dozens or even hundreds of impressively elegant solutions.
You would just need to find the nugget among the grit and help it to rise to influence (and survive assassinations).
That would be fantastic.
Researchers of social science really should look into this, the insight how to pull this off reliably would be more valuable than a vaccine against HIV.
