No, never.


It's primitive and useless; we, as human beings, should be able to rise above violence and differences and live together on this planet peacefully. We're in this shit together and we need to open our eyes and see that instead of throwing stones at each other.

I'd say no. Killing another human is never the solution to a problem that could be worked out in a more civilized manner. As Carl Sagan said, "If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another." I definitely stand by what he said.

Depends. For yes, see World War II. For no, see every other war known to man. (Yes, exageration.)

At times? Yes. As often as it has occurred? No.

yeah we should solve all our problems through call of duty
the only thing that war really has going for it is taking care of the over population

For those who voted no, what happens when some lunatic megalomaniac such as Adolf Hitler, Alexander the Great, or Napolean decides to try to create a gigantic empire?

If war is taking care of that why is the population still increasing exponentially?

No. Fighting a war to defend yourself is understandable, but it shouldn't start in the first place.
#16
The earliest human being found had arrowheads in their necks. I'd say it's in our biology, kinda how every people develops its own crazy religion. But say what we will war rages on in over a few dozen countries at the hands of children younger then us and people who just get payed to resolve fire fights. Anyways thats my rant, gl with your project
Looks like I have to keep practicing

In the ideal world that exists within my head, everyone would realise that war is stupid and stop it right away. In the real world that exists outside of my head, people are stupid and ignorant and we need to go to war to protect ourselves from idiots. So yes, it is necessary, but still completely stupid.
So come on in
it ain't no sin

I would rather there not be war, but it is still necessary in some cases. There will always be something that caused it.

You can't look at it that way, man.


I mean yeah, it's easy to say that war against Hitler was necessary since he was an authoritarian maniac but if you look at the bigger picture, it's sad that he existed.

We need to stop seeing it as Us vs. Them and see it as only US. WE are all people, and WE all inhabit this PLANET. Hitler was one of US, the Taliban are US, Mussolini was one of US, and it's a damn shame that WE do things like that to OURSELVES.

Welcome to world kiddos...yes war is necessary because all these pussy that are saying no will be the prey of evil men...then what will they say when a man like me kills the people oppressing them? Thanks or no thanks?

If you say no thanks then you are naive...

Most people vote the standard 'no' because in their little classrooms they have what they think are "deep" discussions on the subject, but in actuality there are some people who want to attack, control, or otherwise harm you and they can't be reasoned with. Look at Neville Chamberlain before WWII- he tried to solve the Hitler problem "peacefully" and got his ass handed to him.

I agree, and I'm not saying its not possible. But as much as humans seem like a collective unit, we are actually 6.8 billion individuals with different perspectives, interests, ideas, and desires. Sure some enlightened individuals can see past this and rise above it, but for the general populace who slave their ass off everyday just to survive, numero uno and his family is all that matters. In the bottom of man's heart is a demon that will kill, betray, corrupt, and exploit. Just look at Lord of the Flies, for example: excellent allegory of mankind.

I think we should go to war with North Korea, to protect anyone from any drastic actions Kimmy takes, and to free the citizens.

It's never necessary to start a war. You can't say the act is never necessary though, in case you get invaded. Then what are you gonna do, send the Doctor in to convince the bad guys they're being naughty, but end up crippling the enemy army with some sonicky thingy anyway?

Most people? It's 50-50 right now. I'd say most people realize you have to defend yourselves.

No, not everyone thinks like that, but I do.

War seems so superficial when you think about it from the perspective I described. I can't sit back and say, "Well, shit, war will never go away so whatever." No; it's pointless and it really needs to stop. We're better than that, really.

This is the mentality that keeps us where we are.

And I would. I would sit down and have a discussion with any radical on this planet if I were asked to do so. If they kill me, so be it; I died doing what I wanted to do all along.

Look, in an ideal world no. But the sad truth is that there ARE bad people out there (See Hitler, Adolf). And sometimes it IS necessary.

I voted no.
I will concede that there are cases, such as WWII, when it is justified and, yes, pretty necessary. I was answering from an idealistic rather than situational perspective. I don't think war in general is something that we need or that benefits humanity in any way, and I don't think we should jump the gun and go to war whenever disagreements (or unfounded rumors about weapons) arise. But yeah, sometimes ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

Nothing means shit in the grand scheme of things. Everything is just what we make it. If you walked up and touched my keyboard, I could kill you and justify it, at least in my head. Yea those lines on the map arbitrary independent of man, but what they represent to us is in no way arbitrary.
