So what happens when there is nothing left to fight for?
I have been around for a while. I am old enough to remember things that are considered historic, and anything I had as a child, if around today, is called an antique. I grew up in a time when men were proud, women were the backbone of the family, and strong community ties were essential to survival. We believed in God, Country, self and family. We believed if you worked hard enough, and saved your money, you would succeed in life.
Most people had strong work ethics, they were loyal to their companies and the companies took care for its workers like family. We were proud to say we were Americans. We believed our government was strong, fair and committed to the American people. Well a lot has changed.
We were naïve, gullible and hoodwinked. We no longer trust our government. In fact, we no longer trust anyone, including ourselves. Most have become disillusion with the world and life in general. Hope is at a minimum and, every man for himself, seems to be the order of the day.
... is against our best interest?
So I ask; What happens when there is nothing left to fight for?

Brother, if there is anyone I'd want to be next to on a warfield, it's a fearless Maori warrior.
It's amazing how many Ozzie Vietnam vets I have met over here that tell me they fought alongside New Zealanders and have told me when there was a Maori around they always felt safer and far less afraid.
As for the OP, well until we've razed the place and made it so radioactive that no human being can survive upon the surface of mother earth, someone somewhere will find a reason to attack somebody else.
Sad, but true unfortunately. As humans we are our own worst enemies.
