Is Religion the cause of all wars!

Extracts from this document...


Is Religion the cause of all wars! Causes of Wars There are usually many causes for war to happen, these are: revenge (e.g. if a country has lost in battle to another country then they would want to take revenge and beat them), History (e.g. the two countries have had a past history of wars), political (e.g. the two governments have disagreements which lead to a war), ethnic cleansing (e.g. when a country wants to defeat another because of their religious differences, they want to remove people of a certain religion, they want to cleanse the land), anger (e.g. a country gets angry against the actions by another country), belief (this is better known as terrorism.

They want you to 'throw out the baby with the dirty bathwater'. And you have no idea the degree of control. Just being able to walk alone to think and be by yourself, is a freedom that will disappear under communitarianism. You have no idea what it is like to not be able to go anywhere you want, to always be controlled every minute of every day. They will promise a wonderful new age.
