Not only does it sound boring, but I think it's almost impossible to achieve it. Immanuel Kant wrote about peace a long time ago, but I'm having trouble finding the source.

Peace is something we all desire. But how we achieve it is our own struggle, and probably the only peace we can ever truly achieve is that within ourselves.

We aren't directly brought joy by others suffering.
But sadly we are brought excitement from what they suffer for.

Good thing we'll never attain world peace, then.

Even with humans gone, the rest of the natural world still fights and kills. Killing and strife are as much a part of life as peace and harmony.

Each is necessary for the other. What's the point of sweet food if everything is sweet? We need bitterness and saltiness and sourness. Variety is the spice of existence, not just life.

People are probably gonna hate me for this, but yes. It would be boring. World peace would mean no opinions, and opinions are sadly one of the main causes of war.

Because nature is the most peaceful utopia to ever exist, and food chains and hunting go away because everything will live off sunlight and love!


(I'm just joking, don't take it the wrong way)


No, you make a great point. Mankind is only part of the food chain, and we may have caused problems, but we're also constantly making improvements.

You can call yourself intelligent for hating that humans kill and eat animals, or you can BE intelligent and understand that this is our nature. Also, most animals are not capable of complex thought or emotion.... so not really sure what the issue is, exactly. Sure, animal cruelty is wrong, but eating animals is just how life works.


I do agree with you, Human's may seem like were killing and destroying a peaceful world, but in reality it is survival of the fittest. With or without humans there will always be fighting, killing, and the dominant species. As I like to say, there isn't such thing as good or evil in the world, there's only self interest. The reason human's appear "evil" is because we have such a domination over other species, if or when something else can compete on par with humans people will drop the whole humans are evil spiel and realize everything on this Earth would kill to be in our place.

I don't agree with senseless killing like big game hunting though, if the death isn't going to be useful in anyway and it's just for fun, that really stupid.

And yeah I wasn't joking, from his statement, I just knew that kid was going to argue back. I just wasn't in the mood for a 1 sided argument lol

Then CHANGE it. Stop acting like hating your species is in any way cool or productive. It isn't, it's just pompous, ignorant, and annoying.


I have a hate for humans for a reason and I dont say I do to look cool or for attention or anything like that, im just stating my opinion and if you think its ignorant and annoying thats fine just ignore what I say.

I'm sure you do.... it's just a terrible reason. Honestly, if you were grown, I wouldn't care so much. BUT, you're a kid, and SOMEONE needs to set you straight.

It'd be sooooooooooo boring, but it'd be unattainable either way it goes.

I dont need "setting straight" my hate for humans is my opinion and I doubt i'll lose it when im an adult, humans kill other animals for food,profit and even enjoyment (like hunting), so alot of and do that makes me lose all my faith and I know that its just some people humans think its ok to kill something because its weaker then them. Plus there's also the stupid shit people believe in and the things people do and I know these are only certain people but a women a few months ago admitted she was trying to give aids to 2000 men because a man gave her aids and took advantage of her while she was drunk so its mens fault, like, even if its a single human its so stupid you have to lose a bit of faith. Theres many more reasons to.

I really dont care if I look ignorant or stupid for wanting all humans to die but its my opinion as stupid as it looks to you and I will stick to it.
