DescriptionRep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) on Monday afternoon resumed his call for a federal "Department of Peace," which he said is needed to counteract a "cultural matrix" in the United States that produces violence.

"On a global level, this type of thinking justified war and brings the slaughter of innocents. Nationally, it sows seeds for murder," he said on the House floor.

"Yet war abroad and violence at home are not inevitable. We have it within our power to recreate America today."

"Let us create an organized, structured approach to become architects of a new culture of peace in our homes and our schools and our workplaces," he added. "This is what the Department of Peace is about. Let us establish in America, where national security and peace at home includes jobs, housing, physical and mental healthcare, education, retirement security for all."
