World unrest, unrest in the Middle-East, empire-building nations demanding lifestyle conformities in the lands they enter, forced takeover of the
resources of nations, these are some reasons we may head into a WWIII. Would such a war solve any of the worlds troubles? I would think not, it would
only serve to change or consolidate power in the nations that are involved or conquered.
Some of the worlds "systems" only hold the power we give them, or only hold power when the entire world subscribes to those values. I speak of
monetary systems, the value of particular resources, and manufactured items for exchange. Perhaps even more importantly and to the point I refer to
contraband products as tobacco and drugs, etc.
Contraband drugs have internation exchange values that often exceed the value of gold, the basis of our monetary system, whereas in a free system
where even one nation would allow for free use, barter, and trade of those commodities their value would become nearly worthless because of the
availability of resources to grow and/or produce them. While this issue creates unrest throughout the world, if one nation could so permit this then
the world system of value on them comes tumbling down. Therefore conformity is sought throughout the world for all nations to treat and enforce them
as contraband, a concept abhorrent to much of humanity. Other systems work the much same way such as our monetary system and dependance on petroleum
but contraband substances serves to illustrate this issue.
Will a WWIII ever free us from some of these constraints? Or would we only see the control of these matters shift or consolidate. Frankly, I do not
foresee any of this to improve and a WWIII not solve a thing but set the stage for a WWIV, WWV ad nauseum to be imminent at some future date.
