  • no way, not possible ever been at a daycare where all the children peacefully coexist 100% of the time? children are humans at their most basic, uninhibited and selfish, God bless 'em!
  • No, I don't. It seems to be human nature to bring out conflict.
  • Nope. As I answered in an earlier question asking if an end to racism is possible, only if mankind becomes extinct.
  • Someone always wants to rule the world so I sadly say NO.
  • Not in this world by human means. Humans are sinful and fallen and as such, are prone to evil. There will always be someone out there who wants what others have, or who wants to make slaves of others. If we sit on our hands and refused to fight on the grounds of pacifism and world peace, we just make it easier for them in their campaign to harm others. Remember Martin Neimoller? In Germany they first came for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me — and by that time no one was left to speak up. The closest we came come to World Peace in this world is when we are all willing to speak up: when we are willing to fight for the innocent and seek justice against the guilty. But I have faith that eventually we will leave this world in peace, and for those of us who love peace, love God and love one another, there will be peace.
  • Not in our time, but if we aren't so stupid as to annihilate ourselves and keep at it long enough, yes -- I not only think it is possible, I expect it will be.
  • Unfortunately no. Different countries have a different set of ideals, morals, etc. Since there are different types of governments, religious philosophies, etc. it is virtually impossible to agree on much of anything. Therefore, there will always be conflict which often ends up violent.
  • While idealistically I would like to say, "Yes, world peace is possible" when I look at the historical record and the state of humanity in our age I must sadly, and with regret, say . . . "No, it's not!"
  • Not while this is the species trying to achieve it.
  • Like many things it is transitory.
  • not now- but in the future with new technologies or information - it could be.
  • You've gotta be able to fight for what is right. True freedom is always bought with blood. It's hard to face but it's true.
  • Of course it's possible. The problem is that one person's utopia is another person's nightmare. No set of agreed upon rules is ever going to cut it. Each of us would have to choose to accept the world as it is, and find ways to make peace within ourselves. I believe people can only do that with a deep sense of purpose and spirituality, which of course, gives us even more to fight over.
  • Yes, but against nearly insurmountable odds, and not anywhere in the near future. Never say never though. We can't possibly predict what our world will be like in the next millennium (if there are any humans left, that is).
  • Despite some of the other good answers here I see a bigger issue. There are too many different perspectives on what "world peace" should mean. One man's terrorist is another mans freedom fighter you know what I'm sayin? I think its healthier to just understand and accept that the human race is doomed. It really takes a lot of weight of your mind.
  • idealy yes, realistically speaking no, Since the beginning of civilization has there ever been world peace? Hardly.
  • yes, when women make decsions about conflicts.
  • dont brother and sister? fight dont we fight with each other everywhere? do you think we could stop every conflict? i dont think its at all possible
  • No. Human egoism is the problem. If you cannot get two humans to live together peacefully, there is no chance for nations.
