War is truly one of the weirdest and unique activity that our civilization takes practice in, I mean just sit there and think about it, you don't
even need CoD or Band of Brothers and The Pacific to imagine how crazy, delusional, overall insane concept that the act of war is?
Just picture it, out in space somewhere there may be a civilization that could have made it pass their more barbaric ages to enter a utopia-like
reality in which there is no war, no crime, no poverty. Could you possibly imagine what that would do for things? How it would give your civilization
a huge headstart on climbing the civilization scale?
Only if we conquer the establishment of war and war-like activities will we truly be able to move on, and up the civilization scale, even if we manage
to survive that long before one of the super-powers decide to screw us all over. Surely there are other civilizations out there that have been where
we are at now and rose above their challenge, managing to survive, stop all wars, and increase their space-colonizing programs as a way to take
advantage of the peace given(as long as it lasts) so we can eventually use entire planets as actual prison-planets and vacation resorts like The Fifth
Then, even if war does show up again, they can at least control and contain it to one planet and one planet only, as to not start an intergalactic
war. So who's to say that honestly, maybe no other civilizations have come this far and didn't accomplish colonizing other planets, and
experiencing a extinction-level event due to their wars?
That's just wishful thinking though, the delusions that society literally brainwash into us during adolescence. That you're unique, one-of-a-kind,
someone who's going to end up becoming the first black president or only female player on a football team, but how many of us ever do? Not many,
So chances are, we can't be the only one, if we even do manage to survive, not from outside forces, such as solar flares, natural disasters,
asteroids, or aliens, but from ourselves, which in itself is just crazy. The only thing keeping us back are... ourselves... .
So that's just going into the concept of a civilization surviving constant conflict with itself and jump to the next level and start colonizing space
itself, guaranteeing survival. But why do we do it? Why do we in most often times needlessly kill each other on a massive scale? Have entire world
Are we just increasingly barbaric as we put on a front to signify that we're actually civilized? The point of life, and the life of a species, is to
pass down your genes as to guarantee the survival of the species. At least, that's what our instincts tell us to believe.
I'm not saying we haven't evolved morally, kind of, but we haven't made it to where we should be aiming at. War is is an interesting yet terrible
concept, and it 's constantly re-appearing throughout the history of our civilization, if we've been doing it for so long, and for so much, could it
not yet be ingrained in our very civilization? What if we're too far in to actually stop it, and our minds are so used to it that it's become seen
as a type of survival technique, so we evolved to accommodate our need, just like everything else?
