The title is a headline out of San Francisco that definitely tends to grab the attention.  Only in that leftist la-la-land that has no clue about how the rest of the world operates, right?  Here are the highlights from the article itself:

 (CBS/AP) SAN FRANCISCO Two peace activists have planned a massive anti-war demonstration for the first day of winter.But they don’t want you marching in the streets. They’d much rather you just stay home.

The Global Orgasm for Peace was conceived by Donna Sheehan, 76, and Paul Reffell, 55, whose immodest goal is for everyone in the world to have an orgasm Dec. 22 while focusing on world peace.

“The orgasm gives out an incredible feeling of peace during it and after it,” Reffell said Sunday. “Your mind is like a blank. It’s like a meditative state. And mass meditations have been shown to make a change.”

The couple are no strangers to sex and social activism. Sheehan, no relation to anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan, brought together nearly 50 women in 2002 who stripped naked and spelled out the word “Peace.”

The stunt spawned a mini-movement called Baring Witness that led to similar unclothed demonstrations worldwide.

The couple have studied evolutionary psychology and believe that war is mainly an outgrowth of men trying to impress potential mates, a case of “my missile is bigger than your missile,” as Reffell put it.

By promoting what they hope to be a synchronized global orgasm, they hope to get people to channel their sexual energy into something more positive.The couple said interest appears strong, with 26,000 hits a day to their Web site,

“The dream is to have everyone in the world (take part),” Reffell said. “And if that means laying down your gun for a few minutes, then hey, all the better.”

Sounds like they’d like to embue the whole world, at least for one day, with the spirit of San Francisco’s famed 1967 “Summer of Love,” when all the hippies laid around, got high, didn’t bathe a whole lot and had indiscriminate sex with anything that walked on two legs and was under the age of thirty.  Everybody be sure and use a condom because you wouldn’t want to go and catch something nasty (like an unwanted pregnancy, for instance — but hey, that’s what abortions are for).

But I guess their point is, it’s hard to wage war when you’re experiencing the ecstacy of an orgasm.  That’s perfectly true, but the problem is, an orgasm can’t last forever and when it’s over, people tend to go back to doing the things they were doing before.

But this San Francisco couple will have you know they have studied evolutionary psychology and have discovered that what war is really all about is guys trying to impress potential mates that “my missile is bigger than your missile.”  I’m not sure what professionals in the field of evolutionary psychology are saying about this theory, but this could be the final proof that hardcore peaceniks are nothing more than childish and clueless nitwits.

Here’s an actual short list of the agreed-upon, historically common causes of war:

  1. When there are no other perceived options for resolving differences or grievances.
  2. In the face of a perceived immediate threat from an aggressor.
  3. When one party desires something another has.
  4. In the case of an immediate need to secure essential resources for survival, such as food, water or shelter.
  5. When areas of a country (such as provinces, states and colonies) desire independence from that country
  6. As the result of a long-standing hatred between nations that has built up over a number of years (rivalry or other antagonisms).
  7. When belief in one nation’s or race’s superiority over others prompts that group to cast aside people it sees as inferior.
  8. As a result of antagonism caused by different interpretations of some religion among different parties.
  9. As a result of ideological differences between different parties. For example, the opposite nature of communism and the tenets of the Nazi Party contributed to the outbreak of war between Germany and the Soviet Union during the Second World War.
  10. When some party wishes to pursue global domination.

It looks as if the worldwide jihad that is currently being waged by radical Islamic terrorists would fall into several of those categories rather than Reffell’s and Sheehan’s “my missile is bigger than your missile” category.  And it’s not likely they are going to lay down their scimitars, bomb belts and IED’s long enough to partake in a grand, globally synchronized orgasm, especially considering that they are willing to delay that sort of gratification until they ascend to heaven, which, unfortunately, requires that they first slaughter as many infidels as possible.

Given that radical Islam is the world’s biggest single threat to peace right now, it looks like we’ve got a major problem on our hands that can’t be solved by a global orgasm for peace.  I’d like to say that, what the hell, a global orgasm couldn’t hurt anything, but given the nature of the Islamists, they might be even further infuriated against the world’s infidels by such a massive, lascivious act.

Looks like war is going to be with us for the forseeable future, global orgasms notwithstanding.
