Why Can't There Be Peace On Earth

    People can't live in harmony with each other. War here and there are common. Where is that love given by God to us?

        Get rid of ALL religion and this world would be a happier place.

      I never answer questions in this category; but, this question caught my attention.

      I'd like to say not everyone has inner peace; then, how could u expect world peace?

        You have a point. We have to find inner peace and live with it then peace follows within our midst.

          That only holds true if inner peace involves consideration of others. Many people sleep quite well at night without caring about the needs of others.

          Without concern and respect for others, inner peace only benefits the one laying claim to it. Which does nothing to resolve conflict.

            But, that's the first step to peace. The next would be peace within a family

              It is only the first step to peace if your motives are pure. I've known lots of people who claim inner peace. I have no reason to doubt them, however; their actions do not promote peace. So, their first step was a selfish act. What purpose did it serve for the greater good?

      Because of power and greed. That is why people can't get along. Greg

      Yeah, you can't profit handsomely without exploiting the weaknesses of others. Humans suck. Sorry.

    But why? It's good for business because there will be no more problems arise.

      The problems are the money makers...  Get it now?

      Sorry it's just a sad fact of reality.

        You must be joking, or simply naive...or possibly worse. Human nature is the problem. Greed and selfishness lives within all of us. The failure to recognize it and make choices that are in the best interests of others, as well as ourselves, will forever drive the conflict. Blame the money makers if you will, but you ignore your percentage of responsibility in doing so.

    The problem lies with us. We failed to win over power and self ego, and simultaneously failed to share our love, joy by the exchange of heart.

    This.

    Inner peace and peace in general, doesn't solve problems. Peace and conflict are two side of the coin.

    Peace is now just a word that has a meaning to understand
    and not to apply in ones life, its because of these stresses
    that we have become a best friend of satan and in return
    out of frustrations tend to break wars, rapes, murders and all
    sorts of crimes.
    First we have to build and find peace within ourselves then bring
    peace on earth which cannot be done in a days time or
    can be done individually but it should be a chain reaction
    which when spreads  like a scent in the open air
    brings smiles on every smile without any difference in caste
    creed or sex........
