World peace is a commonly debated issue among today’s society. Questions that arise are: Will it ever be attained? When? Is it even possible? These questions have reached the minds of everyone, with a variety of opinions. Political status, culture, and beliefs can all affect world change and everyone has different thoughts and opinions but no one really knows. Will there be a nuclear war, engulfing the world in a nuclear inferno? Will a second coming of Christ occur? Maybe the world will unite under one leader?
The hope that in the future there will be world peace can only be dreamed of, but as of now, it can’t be predicted by anyone. I, as many people do, have my own thoughts on the issue of world peace, and I believe that world peace will never be attained, that it is just an idea created by the human emotion of hope for a better tomorrow. Not that world peace is a bad idea; it is a great thought to have and a great hope to try to achieve. However unrealistic it may be, I will discuss in three main points why world peace is impossible to obtain. First of all, with so many varieties of religions, they can’t cooperate even in today’s society. Secondly, the Political divide and beliefs on governmental issues varies just as greatly as it does in religion, and these political differences can contribute a great impact on war. My last reason why world peace will never be attained, is the simple fact that there is not enough unity among the human race in any nation to even achieve world peace.
Religion comes in many forms, and in some cases, religions themselves are at war with each other and religions just need to cooperate with each other. Sadly, in some countries, religious wars render a country devastated and torn apart.
I believe humankind possesses the qualities to live together peacefully. The solution to attain world peace should not be based on a higher authority, whether it is government leaders or religion but within ourselves. A self-organized world would enable everyone to be as equals. We could do away with political doctrines, religious affiliations, age, race, or culture. If we were able to do this, we as the human race could put all our strengths together and work towards solving our weaknesses.
