Imagine if the whole world spoke one language. Seriously, imagine it for a minute…
Would there be war? Who would be fighting in it?
I believe that most people throughout the world do not want war. They will say they want it if their country MUST fight, but they would prefer a peaceful world.
The problem is that the world is really terrible at understanding other countries and other people’s perspectives. It’s so much easier to go to war with a culture that seems so different than it is to go to war with a country who is almost the same.
The western governments (especially US) are really effective at making other countries look like they are either filled with a horrible culture, an evil dictator as a leader, or filled with psycho terrorists. This makes people scared, and when they are scared, most people will just believe whatever their government tells them, and whatever they see on TV and the news.
Most people are too busy paying attention to sports or the latest pop songs anyway. They don’t know much about what is going on in the world, and they don’t really care. It’s sad, but it’s true.
War is a huge business and that’s the main reason it continues in my belief.
It seems obvious (and totally crazy) to me that most countries in the world almost seem to “enjoy” their ignorance about other countries. We all learn that our own history is better than it is, and that the history of other countries is worse than it is. This pride and misunderstanding keeps the hatred alive, and it allows the possibility of war to always be present.
Could we all just learn one language and at least learn enough about one another to stop the fighting and killing? I think so. I just don’t think the global bankers and the government leaders in the world want that. They prefer the fighting, killing, money, and misunderstanding.
Try to have a conversation with anyone about other countries. Talk with them about Iran, North Korea, USA, Iraq, Syria, China, Russia, Brazil. Listen to their opinions. Ask them how they get their information and why they believe it so strongly. You will see that most people feel confident they know what is going on, but when you ask them “how they know” you’ll see they are just people who easily believe what is in the news and what their governments (school system) tells them.
