Hello, my name is Jay Larsen,
I am seeking to partner with anyone to help me promote some concepts I have been evolving since the Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown, Connecticut shootings, I have researched and given a lot of thought to how we might think outside the box concerning gun control and violence vs peace in our environment. We need to try something different, rather than doing the same things we’ve been trying, while still thinking we’ll get a different result.
A good action movie or video game is fun, exciting and easily marketable, whereas peace is not so exciting, maybe even dull and boring, and not as marketable. Many people enjoy a good action movie and even a good video game where the object is to destroy the opponent. That’s OK for the average person; because, the average person typically has a healthy balance of peace vs violence in their world and can handle the imbalance. Yet, if someone is exposed to too much violence, they possibly jeopardize that healthy, peace vs violence balance.
I have what I call Peace Credits Rate, which are much similar to a financial credit score that helps people determine how much debt they can afford. So, a peace credit rate helps people determine how much violence they can afford in their entertainment environment of movies and games.
Also, speaking of entertainment environment, I am also promoting the idea that just as carbon is an out-of-balance bi-product pollutant of our physical environment world, violence is an out-of-balance bi-product pollutant of our entertainment environment, because of how I described it in the second paragraph of this message. So, I’m trying to invite producers of violent movies and video games to participate in helping to fund a peace credits fund that would help reverse any imbalance of violence in peoples’ entertainment environment. This is much like companies are doing with wetlands and forests to help reverse the imbalance of carbon in our physical environment. I also invite gun manufacturers and sports organizations to join in this effort. Gun manufactures could participate by setting up a peace credits fund and sports organizations could create a fund so that when a fight breaks out at a sporting event, some of the money from fines issued to the players and teams could go to this “Peace Credits Fund” Then this money would be used for people who recognize someone as not having a healthy balance of peace in their lives could be helped to bring peace back into their world, before they go and shoot someone. If you like these ideas, I would love to partner with you in getting this message out to people.

PS: Just a quick world about how I came up with Arm Chair Institute; I have always been a thinker and years ago, I realized I was like the guy sitting on the couch watching football, referred to as the armchair quarterback, Well, I saw myself as an armchair philosopher. So, there you have it. Thank again.
