As defined by the Pentagon is Permanent pre-hostility.
So i got to thinking about it, and maybe, just maybe, there is something of a "Peace War" brewing out there.
Because, when you think of it, peace means many different things to many different people.
For instance, there is the saying that some people just want peace, when what that really means is they want peace of the grave and all other people
but themselves to die.
To others, the only way one can achieve peace is if we all conform to the same rules and behave the same and believe the same things. After all,
there's no real war in such a place, where we're all the same.
So really, perhaps there is no such thing as true peace out there. There will always be some sort of conflict. It doesn't have to be violent to be a
conflict, it could be conflict that arises from a different personal definition of peace.
And really, what is it that causes a conflict? Well, a conflict arises when long held beliefs are challenged in some way. Most people want to believe
that 2 + 2 = 7 and then one person comes along and says 2 + 2 = 4. People will always get frustrated and upset that one person is going against the
All kinds of examples abound as to how conflicts arise.
But peace has many different meanings, and is influence by cultural and personal experience and geographical location.
For some seek spiritual peace through pain and suffering. Others seek it through many different other means. For some, sheer chaos is peace, others,
it is order. Some people just want to see the world burn for within those flickering flames is the peace that some seek. For flames themselves are a
cause of the cycle of death and destruction, and new life.
So with all these different meanings of peace, then perhaps there is a peace war out there. And maybe some day it'll be settled, when humans learn to
not be so tribalisitc and xenophobic and learn how to live with one another.
Perhaps some day.
Peace war, peace out my friends. Until next time.
