I find war an insult to human intelligence. And the blame game is no excuse to me. We humans should be able to get along.

    More than enough for everybody, if we're smart - and war indeed sits at the opposite end of that... 

    But let's take heart: either humanity still has much progress to make, or the planet will take care of us soon!

    My fear is that the second alternative is what will decide.

    Mine too. We citizens are expected to minimize air travel, to turn the AC down, switch off unnecessary lights, etc. That's all fair enough, but it doesn't compare to the environmental effects of war alone.

    At least we can agree on that. :)

    Hehe, we may have disagreements sometimes, but I don't doubt our common ground exceeds them :)

    It's always a pleasure disagreeing with you because it's always a civil disagreement.  I think if anyone gave us the authority, we would both figure out a way to live in peace with one another.

    Duplicate post to both Danilo_G and Spunky:

    Your conversation here would do well to show others in the world how to get along while at still, at times, disagreeing.
    Thanks.

    Thank you.  You don't always have to agree with someone, but you need to try and understand why they hold that point of view.

    War should always be a last resort and self defense.  
    If you are being attacked it is intelligent to fight back and a basic human right.

    Yes, I get that.

    And maybe we humans should meet at beach resorts to talk about differences before checking in at that last resort.  :)

    That would certainly be better.

    Yes.

    And you and I can prepare the group meal at the beach resorts --  macaroni and cheese and tuna. World Peace may follow.  :)

    Wouldn't that be something.  And we can finish is off with Monsters for all. :)

    Yes, the Monsters sound especially good to me lately, though I don't drink them nearly so often as I used to, knowing they're not good for one's health. But, as I shared with you, that white can Ultra - - I love the taste.  :)

    Human beings are complex. Our natural instincts can override our intelligence. War is a manifestation of that on a much grander scale that is usually played ou in everyday life.

    The human race will never get along until we find another species (aliens) to fight with. And if those aliens invade earth – all of the earthlings will join together and send the aliens back to their planet with their tails between their legs (if aliens have tails). But because humans can be thoughtful we will warn the aliens to not let the Van Allen asteroid belt slap them in the butt on the way out (if aliens have butts). Cheers and happy weekend!

    That is the first viable path I have heard to get humans to work together. This post was edited by Jane S at October 24, 2023 6:32 PM MDT

    If you consider the far fetched and unnatural viable.

    How and why?

    Science fiction is good literature that makes for fun reading and film-watching, but it’s not a solution for real life issues because it’s fiction, not actual science.
