in response to reader comment: Are They Stupid

Throughout the history of the world, when the art of peaceful negotiation fails, whether from the lack of interest or miscommunication, the final and gruesome act of violence, war is one action that to this day still changes the world. War, “a state of usually open and declared armed hostile conflict between states or nations” is something that binds and tears at the ties between and inside nations (Webster’s).

Without war and its endless struggle to remove the opposing power and all of his art, culture and people, the world would not be such an interesting place as it is today. For without war, customs would not get passed on and or stifled, mass genocides; a form of gruesome population control would not have occurred, and the world would cease to travel towards the future and remain stuck in the quintessential life without modern technology.
