I clicked 'yes'.

It's a nice thing to work towards. Do I think it will happen? Yeah, actually, but not for centuries until society forms a group mind.

I believe there exists a concept called world peace. I don't believe we have it nor do I believe we ever will.

Man can't government man. There are too many differences in people and their history. Only when God returns will there be peace. As much as I'd like peace, there will never be peace.

The seven deadly sins.....lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, pride. For these reasons, there will never be peace.

If God was the creater of the world, why didn't he just make humans that got on? After all, he created everything (even the dinosaurs - although they were ironically missing in his book that he wrote) so surely he could get this done easily enough...

the question should be do you believe we can achieve world peace. and yes i do but the conditions would have to be perfect. the leaders of our countries LOVE power too much to allow world peace currently.

Yes and I even rated the survey "good" to prove that I have faith that it's possible and achievable and not something that I think we should be pedantic about or something we should use logic to strike down. I think we are capable of achieving a worldwide society that maintains a constant state of peace, without oppression or injustice. Yes, it will be hard to get there, but we should try because it is possible.

There is no such thing as world peace. As long as there are those who are willing to beat their swords into plowshares, there are those who do not and will attack those who do... Those who turn the other cheek and are peaceful will always be slaves to those who believe in war and force.

It might help if we learned to accept the fact that we are animals with instincts, preprogrammed to do what it is we're supposed to do; which is to reproduce DNA.
We're all part of the big picture but we seemed to elevate ourselves above all other living creatures because we think we're superior. Such arrogance... It gets us into trouble all the time.
We're not in control of ourselves at all, hormones and chemicals make us do what we think we thought of doing. So when you decide that you're going to have a liver steak instead of salad; it's really not your decision at all. It's your body craving for something it's missing, iron in this case. The community of cells which is our body makes us think that we decided to have liver... Why is it that some men are more aggressive than others, or why do some women turn into she-devils and/or an emotional mess every 28 days? It's hormonal - we're so not in control of anything, we just think we are.

Not really, as far as keeping life interesting goes. Even my vision of a group-mind society had it's equivalents of sports, dating, and arts entertainments though. You can separate briefly into group minds by things like gender to add some interest. Ultimately though everyone has access to the same common denominator truths, so there is no more cause to argue over that.

I think we will strive for it out of convenience and necessity without even contemplating that we are headed down that road or consider the repurcussions. We will be like some global ant-colony. In a sense, we already are, but just can't see the big picture. A group mind will reduce the redundancy and allow us to better focus on goals like space travel. I don't see that we're really going to head for that goal either though, but rather will wither away eventually.

And this is exactly how world peace will begin. If everyone did just that one thing and rated it good, we would all be closer. Cynics and haters, that's one step behind. So far we are 9 steps ahead and 6 steps behind. I'm guessing that's pretty good.

We have some control. There are brain states where emotion is overridden by logic. It's what separates us from other animals. We have a prefrontal cortex. We aren't slaves to emotion and hunger.

Okay. I'm just saying that we aren't as 'animalistic' as I've seen people suggest. Our ability to reason through things puts us at such an advantage, that emotion can't hardly be used as an excuse for acting like the 'animals that we are'. I'm not denying that we are animals, I'm saying we are evolved animals.

Some people have trouble thinking within those terms (and no, I don't mean you Jo!). I've had similar discussions and the arrogance of man's self-centeredness gets in the way of intelligent discourse about the subject...

So question to all: How exactly do you define "world peace" anyway. Even if there were no more wars [external conflict], you still may have civil wars and riots. Even if you didn't have those, even if you manage to make most of the world peaceful, even if we got the world wide murder rate down to 1 per 1,000,000,000 per year, would that still be considerered "world peace"?

Very well stated LJD. One day God will return and end all unrighteousness and wickedness. Until then, there will never be world peace.

So what if you piss someone off. Don't be afraid to express your beliefs and opinions. If someone doesn't like what you say, there's nothing they can do about it.

It was completely tongue in cheek...my answer was. This was a snarky answer because the day before I 'expressed my belief and opinion' I was called arrogant. (don't worry, a good time was had by all after that  * wink * )
My answer of whether or not Ibleieve in world peace is a complex one of course. I beleive when man can find inner peace within himself simoultaneously with every man on earth, can there be world peace. And that involves no ego. So the answer to whether or not man can live without an ego is most likely not.
