Who invented war?

2 years, 3 months ago

Seriously where did war and violence and all the bad things in life come from? Without war there would be no need for guns, and in consequence people wouldn’t be able to walk into a school and just kill people.

@trek79, Well every being is different so naturally theres going to conflict. But a cat or dog can overcome this by what you call understanding and discipline, ever put two animals in a room together, generally they hate eachother but eventually (sometimes rather quickly) can become best friends. Its the differences within society/species that cause war/fighting.

Wars are perhaps the worst side effect of having a separation among people in the world. And by that I mean nations. Perhaps if there were no nations and all of humanity living under common rule we could get along without the suffering that is war. However we would have many other problems to deal with. The amount of innocent deaths caused by war I cannot even begin to imagine but I’m sure it’s significant and shouldn’t be overlooked. A day without war is a good one if you ask me. However it does appear to be a natural thing amongst life on this planet. That doesn’t really make it necessary though, does it?

@edwardbernays, I agree, there are some animals that are capable of a more rudimentary understanding, even have concepts of what may cause pain or pleasure, that is why it is possible to train certain animals, teach them discipline.
I think a lot of conflict comes down to what you can offer each other and the willingness of each of us to actually offer it. A lot of situations has one person possessing what the other wants or needs and that possessor unwilling to share as the other has nothing they want.
It is the “give-take” relationship that all societal structure is based on. You may need something from someone but they don’t need anything you have, so you find others who need what you have and who have what the person you need something from needs. It can be complex but there is pretty much always a way to work things out, it is just so many of us don’t think in that 3 dimensional way.
