If we take peace seriously, then Malala should not have been awarded Nobel's price. The problem is not really that Malala is young, nor about her having been photographed in the company of one or another more or less abominable politician. The problem is the way the members of the Nobel committee neglect the peace. For them, peace may signify anything that corresponds to their preferred variety of goodness.

Personally, I see no reason to doubt that Malala is good and brave and admirable. But what has she done specifically for peace?

Alfred Nobel might have been just a Capitalist philantrophist, like so many others. He had, however, the good sense to take peace seriously. And we of the so called Left also ought to do so.

Peace is doable, as somebody said.
