Humanity will not benefit from peace

If humanity as a whole ever embraces peace, it will signal the end of the human race.

Why, you may ask?

The answer is quite simple. War drives evolution, without it there’s no motivation to improve our current existence.

When I said war I didn’t mean the ones with the guns, ships, huge battles and nuclear bombs. I’m talking about the battles each individual is having with themselves. Such as.

The battle to find inner peace. The saying, everybody’s fighting a battle you know nothing about is true.

The people who look within themselves to find the answer will improve their life with the realisation of how little they actually need to enjoy life.

The people who look outside themselves are in danger of improving humanity.

They are the complainers, the conspiracy theorists, the people who fight against injustice wherever they find it, the people who blame everybody else for their problems, the people who correct other people’s mistakes, the anarchists, the people who want to acquire more wealth than they can spend. You get the idea It’s the people who believe they can improve their world through other people’s actions.

Those are the people who drive humanity forward, not all of them, of course, quite a few of them are genuine crackpots who are just looking for attention.

Many people have predicted the end of the world as we know it, however, they’ve always thought it would as a result of war, thankfully nobody has predicted it would be because everybody would find peace.

I’ll leave you with one final thought.

Humanity will not benefit from peace but you as an individual certainly will.

    Very interesting perspective Brendan. I always like being challenged to think differently. We should seek peace as individuals but not as a collective. I’m gonna chew on that thought for a while.
