According to the leaders of the Peace Innovation Lab at Stanford, there may be a path to global peace.  

According to their website, they are "using persuasive technology and behavior design to measurably reduce human violence, and increase positive engagement, across conflict boundaries." their big, hairy goal: to achieve world peace by 2037. I invited the co-director of the peace innovation lab--Margarita Quihuis-- to join me and share how she came to join the lab and what they are actually doing at this peace innovation lab towards this goal.
