Is a united world at peace possible at all? Is a world completely free of strife feasible?

Extracts from this document...


United world at peace The Oxford Dictionary defines peace as freedom from war or violence or a state of harmony and friendship. If that is peace, then what does a united world at peace mean? It means a world free of violent conflicts such as wars. No longer will countries need to spend billions on defence.

Stop to hear people out before reacting. If even half of the families in the world tried to do that, the earth would be a much more peaceful place to live. ...read more.
