World peace. It's what every hippy fantasizes about and every pageant contestant talks about.

But is it really attainable? Is "world peace" really realistic?

I don't think it is. I doubt we will ever have true "world peace." There are more than 100 countries in this world, and there will always be wars and threats and squabbles.

Look at the LNF. We can't even get along. Why would we expect the world's countries to get along?

So I pose TWO questions to you:

1. Do you think total world peace is attainable?

2. What would you be willing to sacrifice to attain world peace? Would you be willing to surrender your country's sovereignty in order to ensure a completely war-less global community?

If you picture world peace as something that exists on a spectrum, rather than an all-or-nothing goal, then it's something to work towards, without concern as to whether or not you ever achieve it 100%.

And peace is a lofty goal.

Wars make for entertaining movies and books, but only a monster actually thinks blowing people away is a glorious activity.

We would do better to evaluate our politicians on whether or not they foster peace, prosperity and freedom, than the nonsense we usually evaluate them on.

This is a great answer. I like it.

But how much should a country sacrifice in order to attain world peace? Would you favor a single world body that every nation adheres to?

Why do you care?

I don't. I'm just fostering conversation. I'm good at it.

What you are doing is trolling the forum.

I admit you're good at that. Obviously you've had plenty of practice.

But I'm not biting at this lasted bait thread.

Sorry about that.

You already did. In fact, this is your third reply in this thread.
