So the question is who wants world peace? Who doesn't want world peace? Do you seriously think that people are sitting around wanting to wage war on others? The fact is that World Peace is all but impossible. This is because if everyone is free to have their own ideas, then there will be conflicting ideas. If people are not allowed the freedom to express, then people will overthrow who ever oversees this restraint. In other words, the only way to get rid of people fighting with each other, you need a strong absolute government. When there is a strong absolute government, no one is satisfied because they have limited freedoms and therefore start a civil war.
Its a real catch-22

There's no such thing as world peace. As long as we're humans, that is impossibe.

well i find this question funny but i will answer the question.

there is no specific time specific event or place in having world peace, i know all of us wants world peace you should start it on yourself and little by little the people surrounding you will also feel peace and starts to be at peace with themselves which makes it little by little WORLD PEACE!

humans are animals, admit it. we're are cousins to apes, just like dogs are cousins to wolves. there are schools of thoughts that think that aggression is animal nature (for survival, the best patch of grass), and it's the same for humans. aggression is our nature. politics result from aggression, and aggression involves politics. you want to get that managerial position, so you fight for it and play politics - you get aggressive because you don't want to lose out. world peace can never happen because people fight. it's in our nature, our DNA, our soul.

world peace in this day and age are nothing more than a myth. the only way i could comprehend it ever happening is if every last human died. only then could we have peace.

The majority of us wants World Peace, and it'll not come soon. Us as humans are corrupted; we can't trust, can't communicate calmly sometimes, and start violence. We all have different opinions and never agree. We do need World Peace, but the only way to get that is if we're all in harmony and no wars...

It's possible. But through drastic measures.

If let's say... I ended up being supreme ruler or ended up having superpowers like Superman and was immortal; Then I can be a dictator and force not let anyone ever have war or fighting. So basically if one person ruled the entire world and have maintained a strong rule over everything. Would it make people happy? Probably not since people want different things and don't want 1 person to rule and decide everything. But there would be world peace.

More realistically... Whether it is a natural disaster or a nuclear holocaust; most of the human population dies out and only a handful are left on an island or some remote area. Mankind starts over again with a different beginning and more knowledge on how bad things can get. Let's say there are 16 people. 8 male and 8 female. It's gonna be a gamble but if all 16 people are not psychotic and are satisfied with pairing off with their determined mate, civilization can slowly start and the human population of 16 people will have world peace.

I'm sure there are other scenarios but those 2 were the only things to pop up in head right now.

Do I want world peace? Yes, since the thought of other people dying and suffering makes me sad.
Do I think world peace is necessary? No, since there really isn't anything that says conflict and war is wrong aside from us feeling bad.
Do I think world peace will make the world better? I don't know. For all I know human satisfaction is subjective and always moves with the rise and fall of standards in the human mind. So, maybe if world peace is somehow attained; then people will feel bad about something else since the standard for human life has also risen causing expectations to be higher as well.

Three choices

1.The human species becomes extinct
2.We unite leaving behind all thoughts of difference and become one big human group with same laws, same beliefs, same way of life (freewill not included).
3. We seperate. Each human being becomes completely self sufficiant and no longer need/want anything or anyone therefore war is no longer beneficial.
