Is World Peace Attainable?
Jul 16, 2009

Is peace throughout the world attainable? If global citizenships really exists, can we all actively work together towards achieving peace?

Definitely not. Let's face it most of the time we cannot get on with our neighbours or work colleagues, so global peace? I don't think so. The best we can hope for is an uneasy truce.

I agree with the above. It is human nature to be jealous, intimidated, greedy, selfish and to crave power. Also, with so many different cultures that have different values, i don't think the whole world would ever be able to get along and a agree on one set of rules

I believe World Peace is only attainable if our leaders stop the greed for power. We can never move forward towards attaining that unless we drop away our selfish motives for power. This is mainly true with African leaders which i don't like to mention.

We have to work hard if we are to attain world peace.

I don't think that greedy world leaders are the only problem. Mao Zedong wasn't greedy, but china still ended up with their four(?)hard years, and their political policies created tension with other countries, just to use one example. Everyone thinks their way is right- difference of opinion, no matter who is right or wrong is still going to create tension

Yes Otis as adults we should, sadly we can't. It is not just the leaders, we all have this darkness in our hearts that will always surface. This really seeps out when the adults are in a position of power and influence. The urge to feather ones own nest is very often to strong to resist. Some do resist, but these are exceptional men who are often assassinated by those who are jealous.

Still if we haven't got anything to strive for, our world will be the poorer for that.

YES, world peace is attainable. In fact, it is inevitable.

All religious prophecies foretell it, when the humble, gentle, peaceful, "meek" majority of the people inherit the earth, reconcile the conflicts, mend the divisions, make amends, make peace, and cooperate and collaborate to make this world a far better place.

The trouble is, that cannot and will not happen as long as the arrogantly proud, aggressive and militant "blind flocks" keep waging "holy war" and fighting for power over each other in the name of their religions.

It will happen, though, and it has been suggested how right here.

For world to be in peace, a dramatic realization of this need is necessary.

So far in the human history, such realisation was never serious and global.

But then again, the times and the reach of current technological advances might change things...

World peace is indeed attainable, and that is because now, as never before, most people on the face of the earth have direct, ready, fast communication with each other. And most have access to the World Wide Web of the Internet, which makes communication and access to information even quicker.

The greatest prophets foresaw what will soon happen. And one of the greatest prophets, Jesus of Nazareth, said the following about it:

“The time will come when you will long to see the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. Some people will tell you, He is there, or He is here. But do not go after them, nor follow them. For the Son of Man, when his day comes, will be like the lightning that flashes and lights up one part under heaven, also lights up other parts under heaven. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected by his generation.” (Luke 17:22-25)

The “lightening” refers to the fact that the message from the son of man, which is first rejected by his generation as the prophets Isaiah and Jesus foresaw, is delivered electronically, over the World Wide Web and Internet, and can be accessed all over the world instantly, like “lightening, and in a flash.”

You can read the message at The All Faiths Coalition for Peace and Freedom.

The author, the modern son of man, has been writing for 30 years under the pen name. But, since his written work has been rejected by all but a few in his generation, he has recently revealed that he is also a singer of new songs.

The discussion on "Is the world peace attainable" is in itself a step towards achievement of world peace.
There are challenges and need to set standards to achieve the same.
When can we claim that the world peace has been achieved? Which state of the world can be termed as the achievement of world peace. Let's discuss these things and we would come to know whether world peace is attianable or not.
We need to dicuss few of the points:-
1) Defining the state of world peace
2) Can the world peace be of long run nature or is it mere a short run goal
3) What are the factors which restrain in achieving the world peace

Let's start steps collectively and bring change in the world.

Yes, you are correct. And my post above yours directs you to the work of a man who does define world peace, explains how it can and will be lasting, and exposes the forces that are barriers to lasting world peace.

See my thread on What is the main cause of conflict today?

If everyone in the world understood that we are actually all one - all made of the same thing and come from the same source - all brothers and sisters really - people wouldnt want to treat each other so badly. Doing this is actually treating yourself badly. Science has proven that we are all made up of the same building blocks of life - energy, and we live in a sea of this energy all interconnected. As religions have said love your neighbour as youself. Your neighbour is really part of you - part of life - life is energy and we are all part of life. If everyone realised that by hurting others you are actually hurting yourself and by helping others you are actually helping yourself the world would be a much better place.

Absolutely correct, John.

As the modern son of man puts it, God is the Divine Light-Energy-Source of our existence, The Supreme Universal Consciousness, The Great Spirit, and the primordial "Word" that was in the beginning and is made flesh in all of us. And God, by any other name, is still God, our Source and Essence of all life and form.

We can obtain world peace if we REALLY try and do not waver from our belief that it's obtainable. simply saying that you want it is not enough you have to actually do something. Take John Lennon for example he staged bed-in's wrote song's that were heard by millions. he was not some celebrety looking for attetion he talked with world leaders. If he was alive today who knows what he could of done? also Religion dosen't matter for true world peace to become a reality we need to accept everyones culture and not to have one 'Right' Religion. Peace is Possible.
