War Is The Enemy

Humans have been fighting one another since primitive times, but people have also been debating about the rights and wrongs of fighting for just as long. War is ancient and modern, but has war really benefited the globe?

War can be defined as a state armed dispute between different countries and groups within a country. It contends by force of arms, such as in conflicts and crusades.

War is a calamity formed by people, against others. According to most, war isn’t just a chance, instead it is always a choice that someone makes. Countries spend a lot of cash on exercising soldiers to fight and kill. Countries spend even more on producing and formulating weapons and machinery to fight and kill.

Here the term Pacifism comes into place. Pacifism can be defined as the judgement that war and violence is inexcusable and that all disagreements should be resolved through unwarlike means. Pacifism can also defined as learning to outdo the governed belief that armed force is a reasonable way in negotiating with disagreements. Pacifists see war as human punishment to solve issues with ferocity, savagery and killing, as well as state that society has already become level-headed for the modern world, to determine that warlike outrage is an offence, people need to be charged for them, adjudicated and therefore penalised. In essence, Pacifists believe that war is a crime against humanity and that issues should be sought out in another way.

The bottom line of Pacifism is the following: war distorts the standard objectives of society, where morality is forgotten and it is impractical and senseless in a conflict, where the strong do what they want and the weak do what need to do. The choice to pursue war is ruled by pragmatism, which is defined as an approach that assesses theories or viewpoints, in terms of triumph of their actual implementation.

War also effects and puts immense impairment on the economy. If one does not have relative knowledge and profit to formulate weapons, then amenities will not be used coherently. This will lead to society suffering, not just in the front of soldiers, but in the front of their homes, where they will combat hunger.

Throughout the years, governing superiors have formed hate and fear to influence people to participate, even if it’s conflicting to their intuitive and peaceful inclinations. They begin by automating the enemy and anyone who goes against them in their own country. They then proclaim that their arguments are correct, imperial and loyal to murder, in the name of their homeland. Therefore evil ploy is vital for the governing superiors.

We do not need to educate society that killing is wrong, as society already knows this. What we instead need to do is educate society that it’s not correct, imperial or loyal to murder someone that has caused no harm or precisely intimidates you. It is not ones job to murder purely because of controlling superiors. The world needs to come together to promote peace.
