Will we ever get world peace?
I dream of it often. I am sure many do. But could it ever happen?
I don't think so unless we all started thinking alike and I doubt that will happen anytime soon. That oooor we could learn to tolerate others decisions as a whole, and that's not going to happen either I fear.
Not as long as the Human backside points towards the ground or there are humans left in the world !
Depressing as that sounds, until we can remove religious bigotry, ignorance, selfishness and greed from our society peace will be impossible.
I have to agree with the both of you..
I feel the human race is far to selfish to ever be able to get world peace..too much ME me me And not enough us us us.
The answer to that question is yes, but not until the Millennium. Why that time, because that is when as Merlin Fraser has said: "we can remove religious bigotry, ignorance, selfishness and greed from our society" Those things including pride and arrogance will be gone.
i doubt very much it will ever happen. with the different kinds of government, religions etc., world peace is nothing but a dream. if anything, i see the world becoming more corrupt and having more conflict.
Sure, you can get it...just as soon as every tin-horn power-hungry dictator of some third world country dies; just as soon as the religious zealots of the world give up and go back into their caves; just as soon as every thieving politician willing to sell your soul for the pocket changes loses their position in elected office; And most importantly, just as soon as you and I and others who have bathed in the freedom of life willingly give up our rights and cater to the desires of others who hunger to have that control....world peace? No problem! WB
Not possible. Civilization would collapse, it is not a part of our DNA, nor is it a part of any monotheistic religion, or level of nature. All things are in flux, all things change, the pendulum that swings to the right will swing to the left. The moment you stop looking even longing for external peace, you will find a type of internal peace that evaporates the desire for the "external peace."

Although I wrote a poem about this topic a while back, depicting my critique on current modern day society about war and how we tend to favor celebrities over soldiers, that put their lives on the line everyday for us. However, it seems some people misunderstood the message of my poem, as...

Look I may not be college educated, I may not be a priest, but I am someone who believes this world is running from peace. I have idly sat by and watched this world go to hell for far too long i can't just sit back and watch anymore. The whole world sees where we are letting our corrupt leaders...

If you are religious, have you prayed for 2016 to become a year of peace and brotherhood for all?If you were to spend all of 1/1/2016 thinking about peace and praying for true brotherhood, you would still have another 365 days to think and pray about everything else. 2016 is a Leap Year and...

I can't argue with your keys to happiness., well said. lol. To begin with I'm not a spiritual person or a religious person. If I had to choose a spiritual world or a religious world, I would much rather be chillin on some mountain top than looking for someone to hate, just to feel good about...
