Can we make the world completely peaceful place?
Debate Rounds (3)
Rachid forfeited this round.
World peace is idealistic in nature. You state that we can make the world "peaceful without wars or conflicts" but in what sense? By your argument, we would have to exterminate everyone who society deems a "threat" to their self proclaimed peaceful basis. This will not work.
Conflict is part of human nature. There can never be a time when you can reach ultimate solidarity throughout the world, because there will always be just reason for conflict.
"We are the most intelligent creatures on this planet" - A large portion of the human population is effectively stupid. Our brain deems us to have the highest intellectual standard and allows us to have advanced cognitive measures such as complex speech and interaction. We have a higher limit on intellect then other mammals do, which makes us intelligent. However, a large portion of the human race has effectively strayed farther and farther from that limit. In comparison, an average being would be more intelligent then, a primate for example, but when you compare humans, there are many that lack proper knowledge.
You state we can make the world one country. Do you realize how massively idiotic that would be?
First, you take away sovereignty, which creates large disparities and effectively alienates every patriotic and nationalistic person.
Second, you take away pride in your nation and you force different cultures to combine. I am sure that many people, especially the ones following Islam, would have a hard time mixing with other cultures and religions, and you can see that playing out in the Middle East.
Thirdly, a government functioning with 7 billion people under its rule would fail instantly. There would be massive corruption, and it would be especially difficult to govern such a large body of people. China has a population of 1,343,000,000 people. It has massive corruption, and it is very hard to control its population, so they have to create a militarized police force.
Lastly, what kind of government would it be? A democracy? A republic? Dictatorship? Creating a voting system for 7 billion people would be tiresome. Creating a justice system would be almost impossible.
Your idea is very idealistic. It will never work, unless you suppress human nature, which will be very difficult to do.
Your last remark is the one that makes the least sense. We are here to survive, not to help each other. We are not here to work and have our property taken away for the "good of society". We are here to outlive the competition. I, for one, will not be suppressed to the point where it creates an equal basis for someone less skilled or less educated than me.
"... but to live peacefully forever after". - Effectively proves my previous remark of humans being unintelligent. To live forever after? Humans have an average life span of around 80 years, depending on region and on gender. We do not live forever, and we are in a race for survival.
I await your response.
