One step closer to peace

Recommended Posts

This makes me think the times might be changing and the world may possibly see one less degree of violence in the mideast.

Though there will never be complete peace throughout all the nations until evil and sin are destroyed, we can still try to make this as peaceful a world as we can.

Easy, anyone who isn't Christian or white.

Seriously, evil and sin? are there people who wake up in the morning and think to them selves, "hey, I think I'll be evil today"?

There will only be peace when everybody's dead.

We each can take a piece and our share of that peace by dying individually.

What's more; we will do so inevitably!

We're one step closer to peace with every tick of the clock.

Memento mori.

Well, seeing as how the late 19th century was the very first peaceful era in ALL of human history, I'd say we are indeed closer to world peace; albeit not very obviously ATM. I have faith that I will see world peace during my lifetime.

Nah, world peace will never exist (even though I hope it will exist). War is profitable for the developed countries and the corporations ruling them, and religions never change so the hate that also causes wars won't change either (at least not in the next few centuries). Besides, humans will always crave power and wealth, both obtained through war.

Read the article and you'll see why. Take a look at it and if you're still mystified, I'll explain my reasoning.

People have been gathering and talking about things for a long time over there, and I don't see how anything's been fixed.

I'd say enjoy the relative peacefullness in the world today, as most of history was much, much, MUCH more violent.
I mean, think about it: France, Germany and the UK are not in war with eachother for almost 60 years now. That's a miracle.

It's a question of how lucky you are, really. After all, history is about wars and stuff like that, so you can't be surprised if it seems violent, but I'm sure the majority of people that have existed have lived relatively peaceful lives.

There will be world peace when the aliens invade, heh

Though i suppose it goes on how you define peace, there could, by some mirace, be a period of human history where no wars are being fought anywhere on earth (and earth is not fighting wars with anything from outside), but there will still be drunk yobs smashing each others faces in on saturday night..so there may be a time where there is no war..but will will still kill each other, just not as much as we do when we shoot big rockets around

I can't help but look at how this thread evolved and think, this is why nothing changes. Some would more comfortably resign to the fact that the world is a huge crapper with no flush handle, and any otherwise suggestion is met with sharp wit. Still others eventually find out that power nets you personal gain, and they never get past that.
