I just got on BN and I would like to hear from those who believe that World Peace is a reasonable objective for mankind.


If you don't think it is, please chime in...... God knows, you might be right......

This kinda goes hand-in-hand with my "world government" thread.  I suppose it might even be a prerequisite!  Is it possible, I'd like to think so...realisticly, I dunno!

World peace?  Nice pie-in-the-sky stuff. Of course everyone wants that.


World government?  Like the ole' United Federation of Planets type government from Star Trek?  Of course everyone'd like that too.  However, it is more likely this government would by an oligarchy of the elite -- and the rest of us would be peons with no say whatsoever.  No thank you.

Your stance sounds contradictory.

Do you believe World Peace = World Government?  I don't.  Just who gets the be the elite who runs the World and how will the peons get their say?

I don't think "world peace" would necessarily equal "world government". 


It might take a world government to enforce world peace, but the big question would be, at what price? 


Would we be giving up any liberties?  How would we safegaurd from electing a tyrant to hold the highest post on the planet?  Would we be willing to remove him/her/it/them with extreme measures?  Are we nuts or just being too pessimistic for thinking it could even occur?  why or why not?

Yes!  World Peace Is Possible.....


The most important factor for world peace is Mankind who inhabit the earth.  This is where healing must first begin....Governments can introduce  certain measures of peaceful dialog and policy that support all nations and peoples.  Ultimately, it is based on the unity and wholeness of 'the people.'

for complete world peace, we all need to be on the same page and I don't think we are at all.

World peace will happen, more or less, (not counting day-to-day skirmishes and the criminals), but under a guise and reasons not totally wholesome.  Wars are a means to an end, which is not just another war but a new age.  But what will humanity be like by then??
