In this talk held in Budapest on May 19, 2016 Swiss historian Daniele Ganser argues that most of us want peace in the 21st century.

Daniele Ganser argues that we should leave wars for oil and gas behind us and move towards a new energy system based on 100 percent renewable energies such as sun, wind and water.

Daniele Ganser argues that all nations should reduce their military spending. He explains that the United States right now has the highest military spending.

According to Daniele Ganser the media has spread war propaganda before the attack on Iraq 2003.

He rejects the so-called «war against terror» because we still don’t know what happend during the terrorist attacks on 11. September 2001, when also building WTC7 fell, without having been hit by a plane.

Dr. Daniele Ganser is a Swiss Historian who is specialized in international politics after 1945. He is the director of the Swiss Institute for Peace and Energy Research (SIPER) in Basel, Switzerland.

TED and TEDx talks are limited to 18 minutes. TED organisers say this is long enough to be serious and short enough to hold people’s attention.
