Why do we choose war instead of peace?!

Question from the Internet:

“Does war really solve a problem?”

War does not solve any problems, war and violence beget further war and violence with temporary ceasefires, peace treaties scattered in between.

But resorting to war is much easier than building true peace, as war agrees with our inherently “warmongering”, ruthlessly competitive, egotistic, and exploitative nature, while true peace goes 100% against our nature.

In order to build “true peace” — sustainable, positive, mutually responsible and mutually complementing interconnections and cooperation above and against the non-remitting mutual distrust and ever-increasing mutual animosity.

True peace requires us to learn how to behave, act, exist above and against our inherent nature, it requires each of us to change, fine-tune, upgrading ourselves according to Nature’s integral template and laws.

Thus at this stage, we continue our hapless, blindly instinctive stumble from crisis to crisis, from war to war, following all the helplessly recurring vicious cycles of history until we fully self-destruct.

While we have the practical, purposeful method to build peace above, against war, at this stage there is no true need, willingness to do so. it is much more comfortable to go with blind instincts.
