    American theocracy? Capitalist Neo-Zionism with a stifling evangelical Christian twist...Strange bedfellows or two-thousand years of Asiatic ideology finally come full circle?

    While being warlike is a Germanic trait, so, ironically enough, is the tendency to be a pacifist. This pacifism comes as a reaction against the warlike tendency. In Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler says
    But Hitler, nevertheless, takes the Nietzschean view that no one should not seek to escape the fact of life that struggle (of one kind or another) is eternal and necessary to maintain the health of the species.

    Genocide is something entirely different. Such need for domination/extermination nearly always comes from a desire for "peace." Take a look at Christianity's spreading of God's love. =)

    The most violent modern movement is multiculturalism. Forcing races who want to preserve their gene pools and cultures to coexist will always lead to violence.

    The most violent political movement is communism. Communsim uses multiculturalism to create a one race, one class, one religion, one culture world.

    Tolerance goes against human instinct.

    Why can't they preserve their culture in their own country? Seems a bit hypocritical to me.

    Yes, humans can. That is if humans learn to respect others' beliefs, orientation, and existence.

    This is impossible, as the past has shown. The human race is not going to change positively at all :eek:

    The unknown - fear - war
    With our planet becoming ever smaller with technology and what not, we will be less inclined to wage war.
    Today fear of being without natural resources might be our biggest problem when it comes to war. But oil will run out regardless of who owns it and water shortage isn't that much of a problem. Things aren't looking bad...
    EXCEPT!
    Can humans resist the allure of sociopaths?
    There will always be people around willing to tell people what they want to hear in exchange for power.
    When people grow up and finally learn that, there will be peace.
    Sociopath (Psychopath) - These people are incapable of feeling empathy. The biology just ain't there.(!)
    Are they human?
    Profile of the Sociopath
    http://www.mcafee.cc/Bin/sb.html
    http://www.youmeworks.com/sociopaths.html
    Some researchers say about one percent of the general population are sociopaths. Others put the figure at three or four percent.

    1. Learn to find them.
    2. Figure out how to make them all right in the head.
    3. Let them walk among us with the same rights as everyone else.
    But till then we are all in danger. Positions with great power attract sociopaths. Police, judges, military and politics. You name it. If the position can get the sociopath power over others, it's of great interest.
    The damage can be unbelievable.

    Can humans live in peace? If we define peace as a state of non-war, then I would certainly say no, unless the entirety of humanity were under one, totalitarian regime. And even then, there would be factions vying to overthrow it, corporations battling over resources, and religious bigotry.

    I'm with Hobbes on this one. The natural state of existence is perpetual war. We are always trying to one-up our enemy. You want the green mushroom? Too fucking bad, we're taking it!

    I understand it now. Peace is only ever a temporary situation, a truce basically. It is important to know this because we must be mentally prepared for peace to end. It will be very soon now.

    The problem is that when we don't understand this the peace is lost by a catastrophe and/or by the wrong side spoiling it. If we understood peace as a "truce" we would guard it so much better and would not now be heading for a time of sadness and suffering as looks imminently inevitable.

    I don't think you need armies to have wars.
    People can't even comment on forums or youtube with out it turning sour (into war if you like).
    Wars have been and will be almost always a result of greed or religion.
    On a smaller scale it usually because of egos or lack of controlling emotion.
