The article calls attention to take the Bilateral Peace Treaty (BPT) in a serious manner. According to the author, peace has become marginalized because it is to do with a drift away from idealism among many Australians. He stresses that this can be corrected by bolstering up pro-peace proposals which can be debated and argued in the mass media and in local communities. Furthermore, the author notes that such opinion is the concept of BPT, which has the favor of being a relatively simple idea and the further advantage of protecting national rights by being essentially by mutual agreement between two nations.
