The World was going to Sh*t when Gandhi was alive, it hasn't change and neither have I.

Sadly, the world is overdue for a Crisis War.
Crisis wars are cyclic within a society, region or nation. They're the most horrible kinds of wars. They're so horrible and they traumatize a nation so much that there's unanimous agreement to do everything possible to prevent any such war from ever happening again. When the last generation of people who lived through the crisis war disappear (retire or die) all at the same time, then the nation enters a new crisis period, leading to a new crisis war. That's why a new crisis war typically begins around 60 years after the previous one ends.
WWII was our last major crisis war in the world. It began in 1939 and ended in 1945. Add 60 years to that and you get 2005. We've been in the build up period for about nine years. Basically, there aren't enough people around who have direct memory of how horrific war really is to understand the true value of peace. Sadly, simply learning about it in history isn't enough for most people to grasp the concept thoroughly.
