Love, Peace, and War

Satisfactory Essays
Often time’s people confuse the meaning of peace, love, and sometimes war. Peace often times is the cure for many differences in the world today. If the world wasn’t always at a moment of not agreeing we wouldn’t have war going on. With all kinds of war going on it makes you think that there are all kinds of people with hatred in their hearts. I think if there was enough love in the world it would be such a better place to live. I believe love is a big word with a lot of meaning that some people just don’t really understand. Everyone has their way of showing love or having their definition of what love is. My opinion is that love is a way you show someone what you feel towards them and that you confide in them but also have respect for them. Without love I think there would be more conflict between people which would cause more war. Peace has been an ongoing fight throughout the years. Most people today stand strong with wanting peace world-wide. I myself want peace or at least to stop the war and have our troops with their families. I hate watching how people die because of the difference there is world-wide between countries. If we all came to an agreement war wouldn’t be going on. War, I think is a combination of not having peace and love throughout the countries. When there isn’t peace and love in the hearts of the people who are fighting, that’s where all the conflict comes into place. Where there is conflict going on war isn’t too far behind it. If the world could get along and not have disagreements there would be peace world-wide and no war going on. People often misinterpret the meaning of love, peace, and war. If there isn’t there isn’t peace there’s war. If there isn’t war there’s some kind of peace. If there isn’t love there’s hate. If there isn’t hate then there’s love. Now that you know how it works you can decide whether or not you’ll

    And people should be peaceful and friendly so war doesn’t have to happen. War can bring an end to everyone’s lives if people don’t stop fighting in war. The short story “The Sniper” and the poem “The Man He Killed” show and explain how war can be painful. Also, how war can tear people apart and cause suffering. They show how war is not a fun thing to experience, and if the world wants less people to die then some people suggest that war is not the answer. So, people don’t stop fighting in war, or war will kill us…

    As for peace, that is an illusion. No human truly wants total peace. It is as abhorrent to our souls as total war. What we seek instead is conflict within levels of our tolerances and expressed in ways where even if we wind up on losing side it;s something we can live with. True peace requires a total lack of conflict. To have a total lack of conflict would require such a blanket uniformity in the world as to smother all that is human. It would require a totally static society, crushingly oppressive to all. We'd have to be fed large doses of happy pills to keep us from noticing the loss of our humanity. The theft of our souls and how bereft of dreams we were. It is a horror greater than the worst war in my opinion.…

    Why War Is Necessary

    For as far back as mankind dates back in it's existence, there has always been and always will be war. History all throughout the world holds numerous acts of war dating all the way back to the early years of civilization, up until even today's most recent problems. I believe war is a perfectly necessary action, especially when a hostile force makes unjustifiable attacks that put the safety of our country at jeopardy. This does not mean that every issue's solution has to be war. Simply, this means you deserve to be able to protect yourself against a bully. Of course there will always be the thought of being able to live in peace and harmony, but is that a realistic goal? There will always be bad guys with guns who wont take no for an answer. When an aggressor starts a conflict, you can make the choice to either defend what is yours by fighting back or you can surrender to their demands. I have worked hard for the things I have, and if going to war means protecting what is right then by all means, it is justified.…

    The Peacemaker Analysis

    “Peace would result in an unstoppable power that others would want to emulate or become a part of, resulting in an indissoluble union” (Rice, 2008, p. 411) Dr. Kings peace movement was a perfect example of this. The people that were tired of being treated unfairly followed him. However, the people that didn’t want peace went against Dr. King eventually killing him. I think of peace is black and white because you either want to live in a worry-free and happy world with peace or live in a world of sadness and death without peace. The Peacemaker explained that having peace meant, “They would be without fear, sadness and anger”. (Rice, 2008, p. 411) There could be no way to be in between peace.…

    Love is a simple phrase that has existed throughout human history. Since the beginning of time, we have been taught to love one another through works of kindness and compassion. Despite this, we as a greedy, shallow culture tend to resort to conflict to solve our issues. From wars to segregation, humans have fought numerous battles in the name of a better world, yet, all they have accomplished is insurmountable conflict. Although this epidemic floods our history, there are times where the tenderness of people has broken through and achieved substantial gains for the world populous. To name a few: Jesus was crucified as a perfect, loving lamb in order to cleanse the grime of sin, Martin Luther King Jr. was praised for rooting his arguments in…

    Conflict is inevitable, and constantly present in life. Whether it’s obvious and right in front of your face or hidden beneath a pile of lies someone will always suffer because of it.

    When we think of war we think of torture, cruelty, suffering and hell. Indeed, there is no denying that war is terrible. The desire for war is generally caused by man's ego, which is part of the physical man, as opposed to the spiritual man. Physical man is another way of describing man's "human nature." Man naturally has great tendencies to do according to his desires, and has other people act in agreement to his desires, cultures, and philosophies. As a civilization of a particular culture grows, it is a part of that civilization's nature to dominate the choices of surrounding peoples, in an attempt to bring these peoples into less than one great rule. If need be, man will wage war to forcibly bring others to the awareness of a more "enlightened" way of living. The only way to truly have peace is for man to ultimately strengthen his spiritual side. When living with true virtue, man is able to have patience, understanding, tolerance, love, forgiveness, gentleness, and goodness, even in the face of fear, intolerance, hate, and anger. Self-defence is necessary, but more times than not, war are waged by men who fight against the free agency of others, and men who will the dominance and manipulation of others. This stems greatly from pride and selfishness, but it can come from any attitude that is against the spirit of true virtues, those virtues which are of God.…

    War is an ugly event that man has created over time. Darwin once said, “History is a battle of nations and races against one another for their domination. It is genetics and the belief in a master nation and master race.” War does two things; it helps or it hurts. It honors or it hijacks. Usually however war binds people together if the fight is for right of justice.…

    World peace isn't a big of part of the world as it should be. Even in society, instead of people talking things out, usually it turns to violence. As for peace around the world, people underestimate the meaning of the word. Peace- 'freedom from disturbance; quiet and tranquility.' And 'freedom from or the cessation of war or violence.' Dr. Martin Luther King, Betty Williams, and Mahatma Gandhi played major roles in pushing for world peace.…

    Causes of War

    • 860 Words
    • 4 Pages

    War is an openly declared state of organized conflict, most often characterized by extreme aggression, societal disruption, and high mortality. As a sinful world, warlike tendencies are found in all species. The set of techniques used by a group to carry out war is known as warfare. When there is an absence of war, it is called peace. War generally involves two or more organized groups or parties (often, nations). Such a conflict is always an attempt at altering either the psychological or material hierarchy of domination or equality between such groups. In all cases, at least one participant (group) in the conflict perceives the need to either psychologically or materially dominate the other participant. Wars most often begin with a conflict in religion, feeling of superiority to others, and acquiring of wealth.…
