War is big business. Probably the biggest there is next to government itself. Our world focuses on money and as such, the big businesses will thrive
in such an environment. War will never end so long as men are willing to expend life to attain wealth. I don't see a solution to it unfortunately.
A complete restructuring of our civilization that focuses away from money and power would have to happen. In this reality I see it as an unachievable
goal. Not only are there those unscrupulous enough to seek such things in life, there are those ignorant enough to kill and die for them too.
Nationalism as propoganda to goad the masses into accepting war is something I don't see as being removed from society.
Once most men are dead from such wars, or something else kills of the majority of mankind like global warming, only then could there be a chance to
stop the continuation of the old methods. Though in the aftermath and reconstruction from such global catastrophes, I can only imagine the process
will repeat itself given enough time.
