Get rid of all negativity and hatred...we could have peace. It's all what we put into it, to get what we want OUT of it.

My conclusion was that all wars are deliberately staged and orchestrated for nefarious reasons....Wars are simply a euphemism for mass murder.

Basically, the game is set up so that there's some kind of drama, but almost always tilted towards the good guys. However, just like a video game, sometimes there's a bad ending, and we have to decide whether that's the one we want.

The re-evaluation of all values. To find out that some things just aren't as valuable as we once thought, and other things are.

I was watching a review of the 5 top video games with the best graphics just now..
Every single one of those games were about shooting and killing other people, or pummeling them in violent manner.
Only a few decades ago, people were instead, watching Happy Days and Gilligan's Island on TV. I don't know whats got into people nowadays.
The greed and ego are not what has allowed us to thrive. It's what has kept capitalism afloat, but if anything has hindered our thriving. Without ego and greed there would be love and that would feed humans more then those primitive feelings. The direction humans and society has taken is quite the opposite. The only progress made for hundreds of years has been towards comfort and ease. When people are helping each other for the simple reason that they're alive and could use the help, then we'll be a species that's thriving.

What would it take for humans to stop engaging in war?
We would all have to be genetically altered to take out our greed and ego traits.
But then we would die off-as the "fight" we have in us is what allowed us to thrive as a species.

The knowledge that the root cause of all the problems are what the seven sins describe. If every human would know about these 7 human issues and would learn how to control or discipline we would see no more wars.
