War is the inevitability of Nature.
It is the process of natural selection in the human race.
The weak will not inheret the earth.
The survivors will.....and they will start the process.....all.....over....again.

Now that is where you and I differ.
I believe there is a higher power who will judge us at the end of our lives and at the end of it all, and a large part of that judgment will involve an examination of how I've treated others.
Now mind, It's not about how I believe about what others do in their private lives, but how I actually live in respect to them and act and treat them. The old adage that actions speak louder than words is the truth.
No, people fall into war because they are simply falling prey to their animal natures and see no reason to control them, and trying to enforce a collectivist mindset doesn't temper those instincts.
