Resources are scarce, and until they are abundant, wars will continue, sadly.

I watched a program on PBS yesterday talking about the Earth's age, development, and resources. Resources are not scarce, we have a world full of them.
We depend on this world (meaning, the planet, not the other people) for everything we need. Basics are a human right; it is the birthright of every person to breathe, to have water, and to have food. Hopefully they will also receive shelter and love. It is HOARDING of resources and other commodities that causes the strife.
We must learn to live WITH THE LAND, to give it care, and to be provided what we need by doing so. Long, long ago, humans did this. Then came "money." And it all went down the crapper.
