Possibilities of Peace
Transcript of Possibilities of Peace
Like anything else, when searching for a solution, one must first know the problem. When it comes to war and searching for world peace, people must understand why it is such a reoccurring event in history, and "factors that cause action, reaction, cooperation and peace between states in the international system."(Jehangir). The easiest way to sum up racial or ethical, religious or cultural differences is purely jealousy. Countries don't go to war, leaders of countries go to war, one of the ways by dehumanizing the enemy. Many famous philosophers have their theory on the possibilities of peace and different approaches.
Although unlikely, the democratic peace theory suggests that through democracy and a representative government, a country is less likely to elect a leader who will initiate war with other democracies. It also makes war a "largely unattractive option for both the government and its citizens" and its effects on future representatives. (Placek). After World War ll, America became molded into an "atmosphere" that became known as the Cold War. When there was nothing left to bring America and the Soviet Union together, they became enemies and a war of technological advances arose. World War ll killed many and most wars have led to economic troubles. War deteriorates economy and lives and that is why it is necessary to begin looking for a solution. (Turin). Kant's thesis is "where people learn from their past mistakes and eventually come to cooperate with one another bu leaving war and conflict behind." (Jehangir) This is a more realistic approach to peace and one of the many theories that have been considered. "Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it."

Turin, Dustin R. "America in the Post War Period." Student Pulse 1.10 (2009): 1. Web. 03 Dec. 2012 The prime problem of humanity has always been jealousy and in that attempt to change humanity, the Greek were the first to change the concept and got the idea of a "democracy". Later on came the Roman version in an attempt to change humanity with the idea of a "republic which led to the rule of roman dictators for about 600 years which remained until the English changed the rules to a limited monarchy with the "Magna Carta."(Jones). The document led to the United States representative government or democracy that is present today. Karl Marx a philosopher wrote a book on another theory called socialism which later became known as communism which was a way of social order. Modern Solution
