    Okay, quick question.  Would terrorism still exist if world peace was achieved?

      Of course not. If terrorism existed then there would not be peace.

      Right, you need to define "peace". If peace is tranquility or the absense of conflict, than a terrorist attack would mark the end of that peace. That is the key. Peace is a relative term to describe a condition at a moment in time, a condition that is ever changing. Peace is not a permanent static condition but one that is constantly strived for.

        It wasn't turning your legitimate question into a joke Steven. But, most people cannot fathom World Peace, and plenty of people would like to know on what "level" of World Peace you are referring to?

        Which is why I said what I said. hmm

    Okay.  Maybe it would help if I told you folks why I'm bringing this up.  As some may know, I like to watch and read various film reviews to not only learn from other's mistakes, but I try to incorporate different styles into my own.  Anyway, I was watching a funny review on youtube where a critic was making fun of the movie, "Lost In Space."  Apparently, the film mentions at the beginning how the world is at peace in the future, yet it immediately says afterwards that there was a terrorist attack.  I repeat.  The world is allegedly at peace, but there's a terrorist attack.  Needless to say, I laughed when the critic made fun of that scenario, but I decided to open up this forum merely out of curiosity to see what others would have to say about that.  Nothing more, or less.  Cagsil, I would've thought YOU of all people would know me well enough to know that I do open these forums up merely out of curiosity purposes to see what other's say.  After all, I thought everyone on hubpages knew about my inquisitive nature, but I guess not.  Anyway, that is the primary reason for this thread, as I merely wish to assess what other's have to say on the matter and nothing more.  Anyway, I hope that clears up any confusion. smile

    "The world is allegedly at peace, but there's a terrorist attack."  Key word here is ALLEGEDLY. 

    If there is terrorism, that would not be World Peace.  An act of terrorism would be the end of any World Peace, since peace is the absence or war, strife, or agression.

    "...peace is the absence or war, strife, or agression", yes, but terrorism is a random attack and is and always will be present at least as a possibility. Among 10 mil. people we might have one crazy dangerous warrior-to-be!

    Give "Whirled Peas" a chance! It would take 100% cooperation to achieve total World Peace...otherwise by definition...it would not be "World Peace". That is a pretty tall order. I wish mankind had it in him to achieve this goal. So far, mankind's track record is Abysmal!

    Aye, MPM, Whirled Peas would only result in a green gloopy soup!!!  smile 

    As for your question Steven,  you must have one to have the other.  Ying and yang.  Evil and good.  Love and hate. 

    After all, how would we know it's world peace if we haven't experienced world war?  And if we haven't experienced world war, how would we know that we need peace?

    "If world peace was achieved, would terrorism exist?"

    I'd say yes. There will always be whack jobs and born-again Hitler's.

    Also, just because world peace is achieved doesn't mean it will stay achieved.
