Writing on peace

I have two ideas for things I could write on peace:

- A piece on the military co-opting peace days like Remembrance Day and ANZAC day

- How non-violent principles can be applied to state actors i.e. how can the Australian Defense Force abide by non-violent principles?

The latter would take much more work, but would be very interesting. I got inspired after attending the White Paper on Defense community consultation in Melbourne last night. Some really interesting perspectives, especially on non-violence. I want to nut that stuff out and figure out what I reckon the role of the defense force should be, if anything.
