Uh! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing! SAY IT AGAIN! I said WAR! Uh! What is it good for?


Anyway, here's something that could provide some debate.

War:

Do you think it's something we need as a people, to claim land, food, resources, ect?
Can we, and should we, aim to get rid of it and rise above violence?
Is it an evil that we need?


As for me, I think ideally we should get rid of it and all ways of harming each other, but I don't see it happening anytime soon.

What's the pit say?

War is about overpriced people in suits sending off underpayed people in uniform to their deaths.

All I found with a search was questions and discussions about specific wars and not the topic of war itself. I don't know why you're mad, but providing something to back your point would certainly make me more open to the criticism.

I don't believe there should be war. I believe there should be one single world government, one type of currency, and no more "Us" and "Them" mentality. No more Chinese people, no more Mexicans, no more Americans. Let everyone interbreed and live together until there isn't races anymore. It should just be Humans.

:-) I swear I'm not a hippie.

War is a necessary evil....

it serves the purposes of population control as well as helping to greatly progress the economies and productivity of nations and advances in medicine and technology...as well as simple survival. to think otherwise is childish (sorry)

it is actually good for many things...

the cons of war are obvious...and every one knows them

Humanity is only at peace in the grave.

Trust me, I'm not trying at all. I just thought it might provoke some thought and discussion. If you don't want to, then don't post, it's a simple system man.


how many thoughts would your tired old ideal bring up?
you can't change war so i don't see a point in debating over it.
but hey that whole one man can change world thing works.

The Truth. It has been spoken.

I think this post calls for one of those '/thread' things.
There is a war going on for your mind.

If you are thinking, you are winning.


Resistance is victory.

War, war never changes

OT: Ideally society will evolve past the need for war, but only once it evolves past its need for government which is going to take a very long time and might never happen.

War is stupid, and you should only go to war if necesary.

meh humans need conflict. the only way we will stop killing eachother is if there is an external threat that requires all of humanity to combat. after we beat that we will revert to killing eachother again.

I really don't like this post.

Population control? There are ways to do that without sending the lower classes to risk their lives blowing up impoverished brown people.

If a nation cannot boost it's productivity without having kill the members of another nation, it should not exist.

Simply survival? If there's no war, then what are you surviving?

Of course not. But we're not debating the morality of a small amount of war, we're debating it in general.

With that in mind, saying war is necessary to protect yourself against war is cyclical and daft.

I was going to post what Axim Bassist posted.

Technology, especially engineering I would say, is improved a lot more when war is driving it along.

Big cons of course.

Not saying I like it, but it is a nature of us as human beings.
