world peace is near impossible. there will always be groups of people who believe in one thing and want to force it on others. this has been show thought out history. is a basic part of nature from humans to animals.

What about humans makes it unrealistic to have world peace? Please elaborate on your opinion, it's important to keep the discussion going on in the threads =).

Unfortunately I think it's impossible to have complete world peace too. There's always going to be someone, somewhere with extreme of ideas, too irrational with power, too paranoid to be peaceful, etc. Unless we controlled people lives and thoughts to the point of micro-management there won't be world peace.

Even if you were right so what? Peace is a worthy goal even if it is unattainable. So even though you are likely correct it is foolish to dwell on it being a impossibility. Rather we should be working to make things as good as we can in this world. Life might be a meaningless shithole but when you let is make you stop trying to see things from a positive angle you might as well be dead

Well I didn't say we shouldn't try! Any level of peace is worth the effort. One less war, one less bombing, one less anything would make a difference. I'm just saying that the entire world at peace is unlikely =(. Life isn't a "meaningless shithole" as you put it haha, but you're right about thinking positively is important. I think having hope is the only way to make any difference at all. So I think we agree =).

I mean to say, that humans minds are too corrupted to make this become real. World peace would require us(=humans) to be all alike, or at least to think similar and act the same. But it is impossible, cuz we are not robots after all, we can't program our brain to have the same views on certain situations/circumstances/topics/ideas/theories. We can take religions as an example to make this more clear. Why are there so many different religions? Because people have their own views, opinions and ideas about life and the world.
Intolerance is another issue why world peace is impossible to become reality. People that can't agree to disagree and prefer to force their opinion on others are the main problem there. And sorrily this intolerance is encoded in most of us. Also if there is something different, and stands out of the crowd, people will start to fear it and kill it or worship it, it all depends on the mental status of the crowd. Also main roles here play the leaders of the crowd. As you surely know every crowd, sect, group has their own Head. And the leader represents the thoughts, opinions and views of the subordinates in general. People all are different in their own way, but there will always be formations of various groups, because there are always some people that share the same views. Which means you can't stop the formation of groups. And with different groups there will also exist concurrence, jealousy, and disagreements. And this will also lead to fights, which will lead to battles, and that again will lead to wars. It already starts at home, when you have a fight with your parents or siblings. Fights are impossible to avoid, which means that wars are impossible to avoid too, and due to that fact it will be impossible to have peace upon humanity in this world and life. Of course this could be changed with the eradication of groups, sects, or people that start the fights or are contraproductive. But this would again lead to intolerance and to a dictatorship, or totality, absolute control over us. Which would mean that there will be no free speech anymore, your mind will have to agree with the system and its ideas otherwise you'll be eradicated. And hell who wants to live in such a absolute world?
I mean isn't it our individuality, opinions that form our special personal character, which makes every single human being on this planet special in it's own way. This world would be terribly boring if we were all the same. This is of course only my opinion and I won't force anyone to follow my thoughts and views.

wars have happened all throughout time.violence has been discourages,but is even encouraged even more.peace has also been somewhat been promoted,but not everyone listens.people are probably dieing somewhere from violence or wounds even now(probably).it's hard to get along in just one city,so the fact that world peace would be here is hardly likely.wars have been going on forever,and they'll most likely keep going on.people are murdered in places from time to time,and that discourages world peace even more.now,if there were world peace,the police wouldn't have to exist,but they do,don't they?it is likely that our best friends can turn out to be murderers in the future,or that we ourselves can be,but that still doesn't justify the fact that killing or bringing harm to others can be justified.i'll put up another tally mark for world peace.the way it is now,things have to change.

Only when everyone in the world looks the same, thinks the same, believes the same, and feels the same will we have world peace. That world would actually kind of suck if you think about it.

No politics would only happen if there was no government! No government means anarchy, which in my opinion won't really work. Even without politics though, groups of people will still fight others for land, extreme religious beliefs, etc. So I don't think the answer is that simple, but politics is part of it.

World peace

As long as their are fossil fuels, religous differences, and racial discrimination. It will never happen. It's a dream that will never come true in my lifetime.

Many of us want world peace, but it's hard to achieve that, because we humans always can't seem to trust one another. Namely many different countries are having doubts with each other, causing the Arms Race which all the countries are desperately trying to come up with better and newer weapons that are able to overcome the other countries' weapons. Then they just state "It's for self-defense." Now we have the nuclear weapon, which are highly destructive. Even when some countries try to disarm, it's very hard because once they disarm, they will be at a disadvantage when a war were to break out. As long as people crave for power, there will always be weapons, whenever there are weapons, war is inevitable.
