Those of us who have seen real war know that peace is a ace in our time is a fantasy. It is a nice fantasy worth striving for, but sadly peace is usally found at the end of a rifle. I truly wish their could be world peace, but I don't see it happining any time soon.
World peace is attainable. However, patriotism, nationalism and religious organizations that propagate prejudice and hate towards foreign nations and their respective cultures and beliefs is not allowing worldwide peace to bear fruit. This goes for the United States of America as well as all other nations. Everyone is to blame.
There are organizations out there that are trying to bring peace, but being nationalistic and patriotic is a contradiction to the entire notion of world peace. Those who support Israel are essentially supporting a nation that is patriotic and claims sovereignty over what they feel is their land. However, what about the other side? Well, they are also proud of their culture and nation. They want the same amount of sovereign right. In the case of the United States of America and it's respective government, it claims to be an entity that is essential in the strife for the effectuation of world peace, but its people are also proud, and the entire atmosphere of the people of America breathes war and defense of the country that is believed to be "blessed by God". The point is, peace cannot be obtained unless we shed ourselves of the ideology of each individual country regarding patriotism, nationalism, and individual sovereignty. Each nation is fighting for their own sovereignty. Most of these patriotic ideologies spring from religious and philosophical organizations that promise the political leaders of their respective countries that blessing, grace, and God is with them. But, doesn't this seem a bit contradictory. For example, what van we say about Catholics of one nation killing Catholics from the opposing party? People are opposed to the idea of a united world out of fear of the so-called Illuminati. Be it that this "secret society" exist or not, this panic and paranoia is being fueled in great part by religious and patriotic entities. I say the real solution is to eliminate preconceived notions and prejudices regarding religion, race and social status, etc. I believe that if we eliminated individual "sovereign" governmental institutions, peace could actually be achieved.
