    Justice.  Forgiveness.  Communication.  Prosperity.

    In short, wisdom.

    The main problem is that the common man (or woman obviously) is no longer represented in governments. Our governments have been hijacked by lobbyists, special interest groups and corporate power.
    The disparity between those who drive around in their Phantoms Rolls Royce (http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2012 … ord-profit) and those who go hungry (http://www.worldhunger.org/articles/Lea … 202002.htm)
    is no longer acceptable. There is no Balance, no Justice ... Corruption Reigns and this must change.

    Eliminate greed, self serving and organized religion (the greatest cause of social discord in history). 
    Before i get called satan again,  i am not talking about God or spirituality, for as we all should know by now GOD IS NOT A RELIGION, and religion serves only man's needs to control others. Spirituality is an inbred part of each of us, and our only connection to God.
    Can you imagine a civilization where money is not the driving force, everyone working in unison for the benefit of mankind, spiritual leaders that guide us without profits and knowledge being the greatest quest of humanity?

    By showing compassion and understanding for each other as human beings trying to carve out productive and happy lives on this earth for the finite time we all have here.

    Dialogues without agendas although I don't see it happening any time soon. One can always hope though.

    The only humanly possible way is if every living person becomes brain dead.

      this is the best most realistic answer ever.  And we are heading in that direction fast

    This is an excellent question.  Try to stay with me on this one. I believe what creates civil unrest in the world is our differences. if an alien from another planet were to study the human race, they would see it as one race, the human race, with difference in skin coloring, features and body size. If they were to study our minds, they would find that there were many values and beliefs that were very closely related with not that many differences, but many different languages.

    I grew up during World War II, when there was a direct threat against our existence.  It was amazing how people banned together, set aside their differences to become patriotic and to fight off the threat. But even at that, there was still prejudice and racism.  Perhaps if there was a threat against human kind, we would all come together, set aside our difference and work together as one race.  We would be so preoccupied with trying to save our selves that it would eliminate civil unrest...nah, it ain't going to happen.  I gave it my best shot.

      B careful what U wish 4, it just might come true. With the rapid growth of GMO foods, it is possible 2 create a genetic shift that could wipe out 99% of the world, & leave in its wake a race of mutants.  Could the 1% really fend for themselves?

      "Perhaps if there was a threat against human kind" - Hmm ... what about nuclear proliferation, biological weapons, environmental disasters, etc.? There are reasons to come together, it's just people are not educated enough to see them.

    That's a heavy question.  I think strong compassionate leaders who can unite the people and negotiate effectively with other parties.

    Rather than trying to prevent certain human behavior, I think it would behoove us to first try to understand the behavior.  Humans, particularly males, are social animals and therefore form male "groups." When one male group encroaches on another ...there is generally violence.  This is how humans are. It  has always been that way. It will always be that way.

    Make sure everyone has plenty of food, there's sufficient housing and plenty of entertainment. The Romans were canny when it came to crowd control - 'Bread and Circus' they called it. Provide lascivious and cruel entertainment to the masses (the death matches) and throw free bread up into the stalls of the common people. Perfect combination to keep the populace satisfied and pacified.

    I don't like my answer, but it rings true to me unfortunately. Not that it would happen like that these days, fortunately... Otherwise, we're looking at some kind of evolutionary leap where we don't see color or race, or hear different languages, but intuitively see the inner needs of all beings as the same as ours. That might do it.

    The only answer I see is a dream. I don't know how to make it happen. But if each person and community on this planet had healthy sanitation, clean water, healthy food, effective medical care, and access to culturally appropriate education that taught us to respect one another and not harm one another while giving place for creative and intellectual growth, there would, perhaps, be no reason for civil unrest.

    Anyone want to help me build a foundation beneath this castle in the air, one breath, one smile, one act of service and creativity at a time?

      Sometimes dreams do become reality Sid!  We need to hope that our world can become a better place even if it's one person at a time making positive changes.

      Thanks Green Art. In spirit, I am ever hopeful. As a project manager, I shudder when I contemplate how long it will take at our current rate of progress - millions of years, I think. But maybe there's exponential growth or a quantum shift ahead.

    Egalitarianism is rooted in equality. Distributive aspect of social justice is emphasized. Both are prescriptive. Egalitarianism and social justice bring about happiness, preempting civil unrests. read more

    I believe getting to resolve a problem such as this one. One would have to be complete and Governments with understanding the both sides of the problem thats unsettled. Bothsides have to reconsider and come to terms of piece and fareness. With peace and harmony I believe everything can be resolved.

    You should thank your budha for civil unrest ! It created America , it is the absolute and only voice of the people on the street level ,anywhere !  Even civil unrest in  the middle east is a good thing , they may only flip flop from one dictator to another , yet it shows a will for change from tyranical leadership, and  a continuing manefestation of free speech! .
