That's a really difficult question to answer, but it probably would be because one group of countries is no longer willing to tolerate the shortcomings of another and their feud would spill outside borders and trigger a world war.
Of course there is also the philosophy that we are already fighting world war III and the cause is terrorism triggered by the fall of the World Trade Centers. If one thinks about it, there are very few countries currently at peace with the world. Almost everyone is fighting with someone somewhere currently. In these cases and in the case of most wars, philosophical differences lead countries to find excuses to fight with each other.
Just my 2 cents
Stupidity, ignorance, venality. By both the politicians and their subjects. That is the answer to all questions of relationship, whether personal or political.
World War III will likely occur as the result of either a global shortage of resources (i.e. oil) or through fanatical behavior and actions that will sort the countries of the world on one side of the aisle or the other. It will not be the existence of the fanaticism but the end that it comes to. For example, let's say Iran explodes a nuclear weapon within the borders of Saudi Arabia and then threatens to carry out the same act in France. The act combined with the continued threat could set the wheels in motion for a counter attack on Iran. Countries would find themselves aligning with either faction and electing to enter the fray much in the same way as it occurred in WWII. Once that happens, then it is a matter escalation of events. War is much the same as it has always been, it's the weapons that have changed and thus changed the tactics of war.
The reason for World War 1 - since history has not revealed the two others as far as I know - will be to terminate this civilization for the alternative one to come into existence. (see https://hubpages.com/religion-philosoph … Time-Is-It)
History repeats itself. The Rothschild banks supplied two sides of world war one and two. Centro banks and large corporates vs the people. As long as people stay in a comfortable numb state of mine, the wealthy will continue stealing and murdering for total control.
The fearful Dragon cannot defeat the snake in the grass, being the majority.
Either religion (and it's partner, control over others) or over population, which results in lack of resources from oil to land to water to anything that is in short supply.
I've proven I can live totally self sustainable like bubble dome or a man living on Mars for a three years straight period. Why can't every one else in the world also. Why is the Government God's and oil the only way?
Probably because they don't have the space, technology or help that you do. Where will you get the needles to sew your animal hide clothing? The seeds for your crops? Unless you revert to cave man abilities you aren't totally self sustaining.
Before world war 2 in the US we did not have taxes, it was supposed to be a temporary tax. People before free traded diversally, like I have in a tiny house community adding much greater technology. Today the greatest problem is not so much the Government, as the corrosion on their people. So they can keep increasing Government power needlessly. Which was a good thing until Reagan trickle down system handing over far too much power to the greedy wealthy unbalance life it'self.
Everyone still have their survival instincts buried under the misinformation education has hidden from us. If we put ourselves in a position where we want to live without the things man have made (See https://letterpile.com/poetry/Freedom-D … -In-Poetry) your desire to survive will bring them to the forefront of your consciousness. I did it reasoning with what I observed by the various experiences to understand just how deceived we are. However, what isn't one's destiny one can never do until it is their destiny.
