Will there ever be world peace?

    Wher war in Syria, terrorism in France, breakaway attempts of Catalonia or everyday racism in United States: There are conflicts all over world, people are living in fear, and hostile groups are suffering. So how is it possible to create a better, even peaceful world? Three SciLogs bloggers have discussed se issues in our Liveblog.

    "It is certain that people in all cultures are capable of aggressive behavior, and are willing to injure or kill or people," said Doctor and science author Thomas Grüter. He referred to ories that make extent of aggressive actions dependent on respective culture and individual experiences. He asked himself why some "this high sense of struggle" was to be imagined when people were in fact peacefully predisposed. In event of conflicts or wars, it is "by no means always merely a material gain. Not prey alone is incentive, but also adrenaline emissions, "said Grüter.

    Michael Blume went one step furr: idea of a peaceful nature of man is a myth, said religious scientist. However, progress has been made: "No chimpanzee could climb a bus with unrelated species, no gorilla mama would send her child to a school without use of violence and bloodshed! Our ancestors became more social, tolerant and intelligent by putting on cooperation instead of confrontation! "wrote Flower.

    But cooperation requires that people abide by trust and rules. If this proves to be difficult in small, how can it succeed in big? The scientists also discussed this question. Among or things, y cited EU as an example.

    Reclining would be fatal

    "The EU is an almost uniquely dense alliance of still sovereign states. As long as everyone voluntarily abides by rules, it is most likely that everything will be peaceful, "said Thomas Grüter. But, in his view, it would be fatal to sit back now: "One should think of Norrn Ireland conflict, or even disintegration of Yugoslavia. At that time, too, many people in conflict areas simply cannot believe that such an immensely brutal war could be possible with m, "said Grüter.

    In view of political Ali Arbia, it is often state that can actually secure inner peace. Arbia brought ory of so-called democratic peace into play. After that, democracies led extremely seldom to any wars. "The EU may even be a step furr because it creates a new level alongside classic nation-state," said Arbia.

    However, Flower pointed out that EU project was repeatedly threatened by nationalist and populist countermotions. One point in which all three scientists agreed: nationalism is not conducive, if not harmful to peace. "Nationalism assigns people a place via birth. This significantly exacerbates potential for conflict. He is promoting a ' we against ors '. He mythologized self-understanding, "said Arbia. According to political, nationalism offers "a potential for mobilising worst human instincts. It prevents dissent and exaggerates sovereignty. "
