Yeah, I think not too. Just too much variation in people's thoughts, ideals, etc etc. Without the variation, of course, the world might be less interesting, but the outliers at opposing extremes will almost invariably be discontent with peace.
I think it's always a good thing to promote and pursue, but I don't know that that would ever be possible. Like Orlando said-people enjoy conflict. our minds are problem solvers, and our minds tend to get bored without some kind of problem to solve. I think there will always be opposition.
Not that I can see. Some places the hate is so ingrained in their culture and has been for thousands of years I don't see it changing in my lifetime. Then you get the new power hungry leaders who think by instilling hate for others it will help to get the people of his country to unite under him and follow him. Hitler did this and now Kim Jong-Il is trying to do the same thing. So no, I don't think world peace is possible.
It's an extremely unrealistic goal, if anything. Have you read Lord of the Flies?? I'm reading it right now for school and there's only a couple chapters left but I am DISTURBED! These kids you think would be innocent turn out to be evil little savages and I guess it's all supposed to give off the idea that we're all just evil savages lol. That book definitely hasn't given me a better outlook on humanity! >_<
It is an actual goal, not just a possible one. Whether or not it will be actualized remains to be seen. I think we'd have to have an extraterrestrial threat in order to unify our forces in self defense. The threat could be natural, supernatural, or alien.
That's impossible. I've always wanted to go around the world and do speeches about world peace, and how I want everyone to get along, but do you really think people will listen to a word I have to say? No. War is in everyone's blood. They always have to argue or cause some kind of a riot about something. My dream is world peace, but we will never have it.
There's this pretty old song, from my 3rd favorite band... 30 Seconds To Mars. It's a song about living life how we want to live it, with no regrets, but I think of it more as a, " Fight For World Peace", song.
it is very possible...we just haven't found it yet because we focus on the negatives rather than the positives...I like to think that, if we get everybody on a level of agreement then we will reach that goal:)

No matter how many criminals you punish, terrorists you kill, innocent people you protect, there will always be Evil. There cannot be Good without Evil, just as there cannot be day without night, nor life without death.
That question is very common. To answer that question, the Bible gives the answer. We live in hard times, and many people believe that peace is not possible. The Bible assures us otherwise. (Psalms 37:10,11; Revelation 21:3,4) We would like to see people live together in peace. We’re sick and tired of the news every night with reports of violence, death, fighting and suffering.There's encouragement in the Bible’s promises.’God originally purposed for his people to enjoy life on earth. Hatreds and prejudices will cease to exist, and eventually everyone on earth will be a true friend of everyone else. (Psalm 46:9; Isaiah 2:4)........
No, because of religion, everyone thinks their religion is true and they will kill anyone who says otherwise, the only way to get World Peace is to not ever threaten countries with nukes, not start a pointless war over a pointless argument and to get rid of Americans.
The Bible foretells a time when peace will be achieved—but not through the efforts of mankind. Psalm 46:9 says regarding the Creator, Jehovah God: “He is making wars to cease to the extremity of the earth.” By means of his Kingdom, for which many sincere people have repeatedly prayed. That Kingdom is a real government through which God will establish peace from one end of the earth to the other. The inspired prophet Isaiah foretold that subjects of that government will not “learn war anymore.” (Isaiah 2:4) By means of a worldwide educational program, people will learn to live in peace and thus “beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning shears.”
