What do I mean by "fairytale wars"?
Wars where "good" overcomes "evil".
The problem is perspectives and definitions muddy the waters on what is "good" and what is "bad".
I guess basic common consensus on things like "murder", "hatred of select groups", "persecution" etc exist.
But, in recent times, we have seen conflicts across the world from Vietnam to Afghanistan to Korea to conflicts in South America and the Balkans. Such
conflicts were not "fairytale wars". It was much more complicated. In some cases, matters weren't even resolved, new countries were spawned and
powers even abandoned conflicts. Tolls were high and damage was great. But nobody lived happily ever after and nobody does...
Humans like the idea of "good" overcoming "evil". It is said that as a species we are the only sentient one to (usually) have moral codes.
However, in practice, this isn't usually the case and is much more complicated in real life.
