    I was thinking that part of any worldwide history has wars as its backbone, could it be the only justification for its existence? Your opinion?

      Study the (worldwide) history of computers and you will find no wars.  Study the (worldwide) history of human beings and you will always find conflict, but then humans are not computers.

        Therefore for history to be history wars are needed? Most of our history program is focused on wars civil war, economic and strategic wars, independence wars, religious wars, world wars... what will future generations bring to our sordid history?

          Like it or not, man is a competitive animal, not a plant.  And that's exactly what wars are about, whether economic, social or physical; competition.

          Future generations could very easily use the lessons of history to relegate the need for armed conflict to the history books. We are a species with infinite possibility. We are one species with the ability to define how we will be perceived.
