Is War necessary for World Peace
Debate Rounds (3)
I certainly think that through enough war, world peace could be attained. However, I do not think this is the only way it may be done. War is not necessary for world peace.
In your examples, you mention world peace through world dominance. While war could make a country dominant, there are other ways. Through the UN, peacekeeping missions, or presence in other countries, one could say that the US is taking over the world through diplomatic means. Similarly, through extreme productivity, the fastest growing economy, and a world-wide market, one could also say that China is taking over the world through economic means. It's all a matter of blending other nations in with your world views, until they want to become a part of your nation.
Otherwise though, I don't necessarily hold that dominance is the key to world peace. I think it's all about strong treaties, and happy economies. I also think that key differences, such as oppressive religions, would need to be seen past.
On the whole though, the ends should never be used to justify the means. Going to war with the idea of creating world peace is something I wouldn't condone. It is our job as a unified world to come up with better solutions.
I still believe that only when you are alone Peace can be had. When 2 forces come into contact with each other they can very rarely be in peace together. It is possible to tolerate the other person, but that only works to a degree. Sooner or later those forces will come into conflict until one is eliminated and the other one can now retain that peacefulness that they once had. World Dominance is not the only way to achieve peace I agree but to me it seems like the one that would guarantee future peacefulness and happiness
Thanks for the fun I hope we can clash minds again. Farewell
