Within a week, it will be the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe. In light of
this, have humankind really learned valuable lessons from World War II or have we become worse in our relations with other humans, becoming more divisive & tribal in our consciousness?
Grace, all I know is that in this realm, there always has been wars and there always will be wars. There will not be world peace until Kingdom Comes.
Actually, ever since World War II, worldwide death due to war has gone down to such low numbers that we've never seen such a minimal death rate. We're really close to something resembling world peace right now, as far as wartime casualties are concerned.
I think that at least a large measure of the divisive & tribal consciousnesses have transferred to political partisanship, with venom, in the last 20 years or more.
As others say, there will likely always be war on Earth.
I'm not sure - but we are definitely doing all we can to avoid World War III.
Hello Grace. I guess the question is, are there any lessons to be learned from World War II? Those who had a lesson to learn probably died in the war or were executed after it was over. Those who won or survived were convinced of their own self-righteousness. That is a very dangerous thing indeed. As soon as the war ended, the victorious powers went right to work organizing the world into spheres of imperial influence that carry on even to this day. I'm just not so sure there was a lesson to be learned since there was no clear-cut conclusion to it all. Power merely shifted from Central Europe to the US and Russia. And then those two nations began to butt heads and fight over the "scraps" of the world. With more than 20,000 nuclear weapons at large in the world, it is a far more dangerous place than it was in 1945.
