Do you believe there is such a thing as world peace, or is it necessary in life for there always to be a duality in existence?

  • There needs to be some duality, but we would always have that even if there was world peace. However I'm pretty sure world peace will never be achieved in our lifetimes, and probably never. The earliest records tell of conflicts that escalated into wars, usually over land or religion. Mostly religion of some sort or another.

  • We could always create an Orwellian society where everyone is controlled and nobody is allowed a free thought. We'd have peace, but we'd also probably rather be dead.

  • As long as there are countries who don't just dislike countries like our own, but actually teach HATRED, there won't be peace. Even if they terrorize us and we gave up and rolled over and they came into power, they would simply kill all the people in the world that do not believe in their god. Well, then maybe there would be peace...

  • I think that the Bible says that as long as time lasts, there will be wars and rumors of wars. I think that would rule out world peace.

  • Well, not everyone lives by the bible.

    I believe in it. Will I ever see it? probably not.

    War never decides who is right but who is left.

  • Absolutely not. There is too much evil in man for there to ever be complete peace.
