  • Is Man Capable of Living in Peace?

    In other words, can you see any possibility in the future, some day far away, when man will actually learn to live in peace? And more importantly, will there be football? No, I kid. But really...

    I vote no. I think we'll go extinct first.

      I live in peace right now. Do you mean peace everywhere all the time? Well then no that is a utopia and a grown man should know better.

            That's true. When you think about it, we've only been working on this for about 5,000 years. Hell, it took us 250,000 years to evolve beyond the first pounding stone.

                too bad global warming is going to kill us off before we all evolve to be perfect little animals.

                  Theoretically, yes.

                  You can't get rid of aggression (or the "reptilian brain") but you can learn to channel it constructively.

                  And there are plenty of examples of individuals and subgroups within societies who resolve conflicts in non-violent and mutually respectful ways (although none of these examples are likely to make headlines.)

                  At the very least, I can envision a humanity where violence is rare and always the last resort when dealing with individuals who infringe upon the rights of others.

                  Humans would have to evolve to a level where self-respect and respect for others (the latter follows from the former) become "hard wired," if you will.

                  As mentioned earlier, it remains to be seen whether we destroy the planet/go extinct before any of these changes can take place.

                    Peace being a socialist Utopia in which there is income equality, equality of outcomes, and equal representation in jail in spite of lopsided crime data?

                      I think they should follow your lead here.

                              Then and only then would you have a chance of not being an impotent tiny prick.
