IS PEACE A DELUSION OR REALITY?

“You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one. –John Lennon

Why are we making hatred a necessity?

Love is so much easier to create, spread and understand. Admiring and appreciating the positive aspects of some other culture, nation and religion are important yet underrated. I believe the power of love and idea of peace is powerful enough to overcome the aura of hatred and wars .

US military conducts air strikes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen, Syria and Somalia to fight against terrorism. What the world needs to understand is that the more they kill the more the enemies (those they consider as such) seem to multiply. And providing logic such as: ‘killing some people in order to save the masses’ is baseless, invalid and unfair.

The fight started with an agenda to eradicate the global enemy: terrorism and how this battle has turned into a disgraceful, barbaric and inhumane feat to destroy a particular ethnicity, culture, and religion.

Are all these air strikes winning any hearts, minds or in any way propagating the message or essence of peace? NO.

Has the terrorism stopped yet? NO.

Are the actual offenders of law and humanity being punished? NO.

The consequences and the subsequent horrors of a war are neither negotiable nor worth ignorance. War is not the solution to any problem rather it is a problem in itself.

In a world like ours, the concept of peace is hard to achieve and harder to reach.  Peace can only be achieved by reducing and hence eradicating the points of differences, divisions, and discrimination in the society.

Only the conflicts in society on the economic, social and diplomatic front needs to be examined with an unbiased perspective as no matter how far hatred has taken us the culture and hearts of common people of the nations still keep us united.

And those who tell me that this thought of addressing things with love and propagating the spirit of peace is hypothetical, delusional and abstract, should understand that their idea of war and hatred is all about destroyed lives and destruction.

And if you believe that peace is just a very beautiful topic to write about then let me get this straight that you are talking about ‘war’; the easiest word to pronounce but the most difficult to withstand.

I believe love, laughter and a thought spared for peace can overcome all the differences in the world.

  1. Masterfully examined and written.
    And in my opinion, the root of all these problems of terrorism lies in the eternal human nature of “not being satisfied with what we have.”
    And to understand this, we don’t need war, we need introspection, about which, unfortunately, 90% of the people have little idea.
