A myriad of reasons, but as of late the most notable would be the human species. Take into account psychology alongside the group mentality that takes people over, then it becomes clear how things came to be. As choices arise there have to be reactions, which are dictated in simplicity by basic human nature. Apply a veneer brought upon by self, society, or elsewhere; it will get more complicated. That extra layer being morals, ethics, and similar things that influence decisions. Other things of course play a role as well.

There is always a different reason; Religion, Land, money, Knowledge, Power, Fear, Hunger, Resources. In the information age, we just see everything instantly. We notice just how bad we are, and we don't like it.

Because reality is in flux, all the time, and "opposites" always transmute into each other sooner or later?

History is the story of human interaction, and more often than not human conflict. Many factors cause humans to come into contention with one another, but the most essential point has always been economics. Based upon the hierarchy of needs, humans first and foremost require sustenance. The system which humans themselves have contrived requires currency, or some other form of compensation, likely involving currency, in order to obtain the basic needs for living. It is because of this, and that elemental need, that the story of human conflict is one that is completely defined by economics. While other factors can exist, economics are a single overriding factor that can be traced as spawning countless revolutions, wars, and other forms of cultural upheaval.
