From now, I tend to think that war is a stimulation for the plain dull human life. Humans need excitement, stimulation, they crave for thrills on their nerves.
And objectively, war is not all bad. Though it does bring down the benefits of peace, but it also can accelerate the evolution of technology and all other progressing fields of human society.
War not just brings the conqueror’s culture, but also explodes new possibilities and varieties for primitive cultures.
Human’s war is not just the bloodshed, tons of millions people get killed, it also resolves the temporary conflicts between two cultures/nations.
As a pacifist, life and peace are both priorities. However I can’t control how the world spins–China’s going to throw out an all out war towards Japan in the possible near future, 20, 30 years maybe. It’s not like I can tell China’s government not to attack Japan, it’s not like I can prevent the war from happening.
This got me thinking, I ran a dissection in my head on war.
War lies within the human nature, it’s not something we want to get rid of that easily. Humans love the thrills and nerve-tingling effects of wars. Not only this, the victor can takeover all the resources the loser has. Contending for more resources has been the eternal theme on this planet–beggars can’t choose, winners choose. Resources, controls and distribution.
This is just the way of human.
Fight is normal in human life, think of war as a more aggressive and upgraded fight of two nations. From macro-perspective, it’s also normal as there are always conflicts and the final resort.
From historical perspective, it’s impossible for human to not have war in 100 years, think about it, from the start of AD, how many wars have human fought and waged? Bloodshed has been everywhere, a battle? A campaign? Or any other unlisted regional conflicts through years?
War never stops, not even in 100 years, there’s no peace to talk about.
Our race is just at its beginning, 6 millennia of human civilization. That’s not much, compared to any other species on this planet. What are we, right? Even dinosaurs existed longer than us.
Are we going to doom ourselves by wars? No I don’t think so, unless everybody starts to go haywire and kills everyone on sight. That’s not going to happen. Follow the real world rules–resources are the prime alpha of all, we fight, we war, for the petering resources on this planet.
That’s pretty much the case. You know, I personally kinda want to join military after the war explodes, yeah, well, thinking no better places to go. World after the explosion of war is always a shithole, everybody starts to gone mad, it could reveal the deepest evils and sins of human nature. I better go to military and be an officer, some communication officer, and then join the army or navy or air-force whatever, die on the battlefield, before I had taken at least three hundred or four hundred motherfuckers lives.
