The Possibility of Global Peace

Updated on February 11, 2012

What do we really think of Global Peace? Do we think of different colored hands shaking while in the UN, or do we think of it as a comical Miss America speech? Each of which is depicting either your beliefs in its true nature, or something that is only a fantasy. Whatever you believe in, it might be time to reevaluate our conclusions on global peace. Because after all, it stands for something that we as a people all have to strive for in order to accomplish the very term.

Global Peace has been evolving for a long time. Whenever the first cave man decided he wanted to trade his nuts and berries with a nomad from across the mountains, there was a union of understanding. We’ve come a long way since then, technology and civilization has evolved but have people? The meaning of the term is an ideal of freedom, peace and happiness among and within all nations or people. It is a hope that people have a planetary non-violence in which nations will cooperate, and hostility will cease among in individuals. Either voluntarily or by a system of the government that prevents warfare.

Some people simply think of it as an impossible state, prevented inherently from human nature. Others believe that war is not in human nature, and that the thought of it regressively impacts the forward movement, thus preventing Global Peace.

Idealists believe that by achieving peace within ourselves Global Peace is not only possible, but in the foreseeable future. There are various theories on how this peace could be achieved, and many organizations devoted to the cause which is an inspiration to any optimist, realist or pessimist for that matter. Some will choose the democratic theory, that democracies never or rarely wage war against each other. Others will go with the Cobdenism theory, which says that by removing tariffs and creating international free trade, wars will become impossible because free trade prevents nations from becoming self-sufficient.

The most inspiring of all the ideas that makes sense, is that there is a trend in national politics, in which city-states and nation-states have in fact unified and suggest that the international area will eventually follow suit. Countries such as The United States, Germany, India, China, Italy and Britain have unified into single nation-states, and with the European Union following right behind, it suggests that it will bring around a unified world order, and Global Peace.

The great peace towards which people of good will throughout the centuries have embraced, of which countless generations have expressed their vision, and is now at last within the reach of the nations. For the first time in history it is possible for everyone to view the entire planet, with all its diversified people, in one perspective. Global peace is not only possible but inevitable, and it very well might be the next stage in the evolution of this planet.

Do you think Global Peace is possible?
