The last peaceful place on the planet, the last place where war has never existed, where people live in harmony, is Lugu Lake. The lake is home to the Mosuo minority, one of China's 56 ethnic groups, hidden in the shadows of the Xiaoliang Mountains, bordering Sichuan Province and Yunnan Province of China. Anthropologists have noted Lugu Lake as an oddity in the study of human society. According to many scholars, the Mosuo have done away with the problem of sexual harassment, burglary, murder, rape, domestic disputes between mother in-laws and daughter in-laws, and individual desire for economic gain. Hence their language has no words for war, rape, or murder.
