While the notion of fewer wars is very appealing, one has to wonder about the impact of such variables as global warming, overpopulation, diminishing resources, pandemics, etc.

LOL!  Whatever. I hate comments like this.
You can just call me an optimistic so and so.
There has to be a end to these hostilities and it won't be down to the NWO.
Humans have got the capacity to fix it themselves but sometimes they need a push.

Well I can't speak for the rest of the forum but I know I won't be.
As for future generations to come there might still be some hope.
Some of you might even be around to  remember this thread.

What I hate about your comment is the fact that there are no aliens visiting earth.  But that is an argument for a different thread.

I agree about the aliens not being mentioned even though I brought it up.
An other time and an other place seems to be the underlying motto here.
But you could still be suggesting my rose-tinted spectacles have steamed up.
However altering your beliefs is not really what I'm about.

Here's some more stuff to chew the fat over...
You could argue that Earth is one continious battlefield.
And these individual acts of sadism,cruelty and cold-blooded murder complete the picture.
There is however a lot of good in the world which outweighs the bad.
The lillywhites have to got make more of an effort so change can be effected.
And when they achieve this goal the world should be the utopia everybody is striving for.
I sound like some idealistic dreamer.

Sweet...  So, in a time where our economies are in the toilet, most major governments are influenced by religious extremism of one type or another, weapons are the most technologically advanced they've ever been (simmer down, ancient aliens guys), and we are quickly running out of our natural resources on a planet that is heating up due to global warming (simmer down, global warming conspiracy theorists) we, for the first time in our existence as a species, will be giving peace a chance!  Great news!  :)

Don't get me wrong, I'm against all war with the exception of defense, and not the premptive type of defense I'm so ashamed of my country for being involved with.  However I don't believe that humanity will ever be that enlightened as that is the kind of thing that comes with age and there will always be young people both age wise and spiritually.

War will stop when Jesus returns to Earth, which is very soon now, as we are almost at the end of the book of Revelation. (and the Mayan calendar.)

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."

Praise the true God.

It is nice to think about this optimistically and I certainly hope this is the case, or better yet alleviated altogether ( I know, wishful thinking).  Maybe it would be in our best interest to develop ways for these huge corporations to make money without resorting to the war machine. If we spent half of the money that goes into war on education or space tech, imagine where we could be now.

There's always some killjoy that trips me up...
I believe I covered all the bases in not as many words.
But I did say that the aliens could fix it. Unpopular as it seems.
I was actually being non-specific about what aliens I'm talking about.
I'll give you two guesses and one of them isn't grey.
But let's focus on one problem at the time.
Like getting rid of the cancer called war for starters.

Posted 04 December 2012 - 08:44 PM

I have to agree that war will not end. Populations are supposed to double by 2050. And fuel (Other then coal) is supposed to become in short supply too. And supposedly the oceans will rise a couple meters. So there will be more people, with less land and with less transportation. Poverty will probably increase in those cases, and when poverty increases war sometimes follows. Not to mention that food will eventually start to be harder to get and transport. There will always be a nation of Have Nots who will envy and attack their more prosperous neighbors.

As to the one world government. "War" will end, because they will simply call it civil unrest and rioting, in the government news blog. But conflicts will keep on till every human is dead.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

I doubt it as long as I'm one of the remaining two.
Look at all the recourses we've got and there's more than enough to share.
Unless the other person is a fellow man and the resources have basically withered on the vine.
In short a parched wasteland due to the rigours of war.
Then we will end up killing each other in a suicide pact.
