How could we stop war, when in this world we have people who promote it. Most likely being people with high social status, or supreme authority. When this world was made, there was no such thing as countries. The middle east didn't have "The Gulf", "The Levant", and "The Maghreb", as area names; nor did the continents we live in; or Europe's countries etc. In fact if you took the time to notice, the more we progress into time, the more countries, areas, families, and people in general move their way to increasing fanaticism. These ethnocentric ways are always started by an individual (usually a bigoted one) that wants to enforce his beliefs onto others; the uttermost meaning of uncivilisation I say (yes uncivilisation still exists in this advanced era of life lamentably). This individual would most likely have ravishing skills in deceivingly persuading and convincing others that he/she is the right leader for them; when that's done others are fooled into his/her ways. It's even a huger deception when folks don't even have the right and freedom to choose their leader. These individuals gain or have overwhelmingly strong power. Strong enough to separate large countries into smaller units. Kindoms, smaller sub-units, principalities, duchies, counties, Free Imperial Cities, as well as other domains. You also get further sub-units within these units. It's like unity and group spirit are enemies to us, especially to people these days. I anticipate the day when this world will be one peaceful single whole.

I don't say countries didn't exist in the past, but they were there as a mean to name the location in which people were in; nothing more, nothing less. Now countries are a source of pride, arrogance, greed, hatred amongst others, prejudice by party spirit and all that. IGNORANCE in other words.

Life is Simple...

People make it complicated. Imagine the world without people. Just animals, trees, mountains, seas. Sounds peaceful right?

Since the dawn of time, war has been a way of life for this world and I don't think it will ever stop. It's not because the people of that country want to have it that way; that is most certainly not the case. I don't think people are born with an urge to be in war, to fight in war, to suffer in war. People are brought up in such a way, and in such an environment that it's as if they've been machined to think, say, and act the way they do (socializm). I'm sure some, if not all, of those soldiers fighting out there, whether it be for or against justice, are doing it not because they have a specific intention, mentality or personality. Yes, there are people with the certain nature that wants to slaughter a man's head alive a day, and stab the hell out of another the next, but that would most probably mean they're sick. Literally. Unless someone's born with such a diseaese, I don't think they want to be put under any such circumstance. And one thing's for sure: people have different beliefs and perspectives of this world, think of it and what happens in it in various ways, and have deviating aims and missions in it. However they most certainly share a common interest: achieving peace. The majority of them at least. So since the majority seeks and wants it, how come we never have it? Why doesn't it exist in this planet?

My answer to this is the lack of negotiation between individuals and groups of individuals. "Individuals" is ambiguous here. It could be applied to countries, couples, siblings, etc. This obviously implies a relationship is present, and that war is a result of disagreement. When insufficient negotiation happens, the conflict develops and gets aggravated to a more serious problem; and if not dealt with, results into a crisis.

The next stage is open to pretty much anything. But nothing really pleasant. Ongoing, abstruse dispute. Divorce. Unhonorable competition. Uncalled for violence, injuries, and deaths. The lost benefits of what could have been a healthy positive relationship. The list of what could happen in this stage is endless. No one but a pshyco finds joy in what could happen here (which i will touch in more details in another post). This conflict could last for years, and badly affects the people involved in it. Yet people continue to their ways of perversity and dispute.

Of course, a little disagrement and conflict is healthy in all sorts of relationships, but the downside is when this gets overly out of hand. Oh well, "C'est la vie" as the french best put it.
