Is world peace every going to be a possible goal?

I felt like hearing your thoughts on this, what do you think?

Report as

I think not... People will get bored of being peaceful, and want to be violent again... That's just how the world works out, sadly :/

Hi, GBambino. This is just my innocent comment like everyone else's and I don't want to fight with anyone. But, if you believe what the Bible says, then the answer is no, not until Jesus comes back.

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! >_<

Holy crap, I've never read the book, but I did see the movie about it (go figure). And yes they were little savages!!! I'm not sure how detailed the book is... but they didn't spare very much savagery in the movie. Little bass tards!
Report as
hah the book isn't even THAT detailed with the killing and all that but it's still disturbing >_< I only watched some of the movie on YouTube but I didn't want to watch the whole thing b/c I thought it would scare me hah. Idk how Simon is portrayed in the movie, but I loved Simon in the book and I was so sad and frustrated to see Simon killed and Jack take over :'( all the symbolism is crazy though, like when our teacher spelled it out for us it's like 'MIND BLOWN!!'

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.

Report as

Report as
@redrose it's not that sad, it's just realistic.. We all grow up in different cultures, so what's right in one culture may not seem right in another. But what's pretty much universal is that no one wants to leave their culture to be a part of a different one. We all want to keep doing the things we do, and it's pretty much impossible to get everyone to agree on everything. There are way too many people on earth for that ever to happen. It's not that sad since the world today is pretty good, especially in comparison to how it's always been in the past. People like to complain 'oh today's world is terrible' and 'MY generation was so much better' but reality is, this generation is a million times better than the generation 50 years ago.
Report as
RedRose
yeah, but there are so many terrible things happening. i believe if we could eradicate baseless hatred, we could have peace.
Report as
"Eradicate baseless hatred" huh that was an interesting sounding sentence lol. Well, yeah, that's sort of a given. Somehow just getting rid of unreasonable hatred or any hatred at all would probably make things a lot better, and so would just getting rid of selfishness, greed, etc. That's just unrealistic thinking. We all have our own minds and we can think how we want to think; a majority of the way we are does come down to genetics and brain chemistry, so it's not like a better environment will just solve everyone's problems.
Besides, disagreements are what make life interesting. If everyone agreed upon every thing, life would be very boring and wouldn't make much sense. We should appreciate the thing we got going on right now, not complain about it.

I do appreciate it, but what i dont appreciate is the horrible terrorist attacks, the innocent families being blown up just because of their beliefs. its disgusting, and it needs to end.

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)........

..........There will be happiness in the Paradise earth. Never again will people feel hunger because of lack of food. (Psalm 67:6; 72:16) All will enjoy the fruits of their own labor (Isaiah 65:21, 22) In God’s new world, no longer will people be crammed into huge apartment buildings or run-down slums. (Isaiah 65:21-23) In time, God’s Kingdom will even restore the peaceful relations that existed in the garden of Eden between animals, and between animals and humans. (Isaiah 11:6-9; Hosea 2:18) God’s Word assures us that ALL sickness will be done away with (Isaiah 33:24; Isiah 25:8)

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.”
