1.) For the gaint question mark, I used to think war was bad. But without war we wouldn't evolve to be where we are at right now. The main reason for
war being bad, would be the loss of innocent lives. Yet, regarding lives lost, don't you sometimes wish death people or are you a pure like a rainbow?
2.) How can I define war when you want an explanation for going to war? In what part of my post have I mentioned, "let's go to war?"
"Is war good or bad" is a neutral question with a simple answer and a small explanation. You expect me to to define something that has two definitions
as a noun and verb. One, where war is already happening, the other where war is about to happen.
Yes, I used to believe it was bad because blah blah blah. Blah is the reason I used to believe war was bad.
My point of view was from observation. No I have not experienced war first hand. Even if I were in one, how "valid" would my opinion have to be?
If I was a soldier, I chose to sacrifice myself for good or bad cause. If I was a civilian, I was chosen to be in either one.
The effects on the human psyche can be over come with the same human psyche. Mental power vs mental power.
3.) This question wasn't vague. It wasn't made for a specific war that occurred in past relations. It was in general. Any war weather it's personal or
involves humanity as whole, has its purpose. From it, could be benefits to damages. Sometimes both.
4.) I don't recall "justifying" war. Innocent lives will be killed regardless of war being present or not. You don't need a mass scale of killings to
call it war. It can be called "accidents" or insurance purposes.
Or to reduce growth in population to balance with nature. In this case, I'm sure a few innocent lives, including me, wouldn't mind dying. Less pain in
the after life, less misery too.
