Is World Peace Possible?

In the current time world peace seems to be a little bit closer to reality. However, small groups still have conflict in the world. Based off facts and opinions. I want to get a wide view of this issue. I believe that one day I will be able to own child slaves once again. I'm really hoping world peace can be created. What do you guys think?

Not sure about the slavery

Anyway world peace.

This is an ideal the UN seeks to achieve without much success. Humanity is so diverse with so many political, religious, economic etc etc points of view that the only way of unity would be if everyone all agreed upon the same basic principles. That would require a totalitarian regime and world domination. Don't think that will happen in our life time and who would be the dominator anyway ? Read George Orwell 1984 and Aldous Huxley Brave New world for more ideas on that one.

In short, the answer is no.

With modern extremist groups (Maybe ISIS) It will certainly be difficult to achieve.

And with those groups being so intolerant, it will also make it quite hard to ac hive.

Not totally. It'd be like trying to divide a number until you get to zero: you'll get infinitely closer, but you'll never actually get there.

The problem is that we humans are animals; it is in our nature to be selfish, violent, greedy, spiteful, and inconsiderate of others. It isn't inherently bad; those are our natural survival instincts. However, they conflict with our desire to be peaceful and cooperative. So even if every single human learned to be loving and respectful, there are simply too many opportunities for us to have bad experiences that make us prone to giving in to our urge to serve ourselves and justify our darkest feelings and desires by blaming others and forming stereotypes.

no, not when everyone has their own ideas and so. There will always be conflict and defense, no matter how big or small

This I would have to agree with. Today a lot of conflict is going on and that is never going to stop. Everyone will have their own ideas and someone will try to challenge that which in the end would lead to conflict. There will also be those people who are extremist and will rise some kind of conflict. Religion will also be a problem because there will be people who think that their religion is better and then there is people who don't have a religion that will cause conflict with religious people, and you see this even on this site it just never ends.

Is it possible? Yes. Will it ever happen? Maybe. The minimum argument length is 50 characters. The purpose of this restriction is to cut down on the amount of dumb jokes, so we can keep a play'a down!

I think the only way to get peace is to destroy every other nation until you only have one state in which everyone shares the same ideology. Ironically, ISIS might be the ones to eventually achieve world peace. The end does not justify the means though.
