I believe that in truth war is the only discernable fact of existence.
From the chaotic nature of the universe, to animal relationships we have been born into an existence of chao’s.
I suggest therefore that war is and always has been the natural result of human relationships, not matter how small the conflict, friction between people results in conflict.
War gives birth to culture, it makes us constantly aware of the movement of existence, constantly aware of the changing world we live in, if we weren’t aware of this then we would become stagnant, we would have nothing to strive for, if peace was the permanent human condition then we would become stagnant, we would have nothing to worry about, we would become placid, we would be unable to function.
I refer not exclusively to full blown military conflict, but rather to the fact that without conflict between beings we would be unable to push ourselves forward. The urge of defence and protection from our destruction has always been a way for us to see our horizon and move ourselves towards it.
I would argue that without this friction, we would be unable to be human, we would no longer be animals, we would simply die, because we would be defying our very primal nature.
Therefore conflict and war is the father of all things. It defines us, and pushes us forward.
Also, im not pro-war, i see it as an option, im pro-social-friction in a sense, which sometimes has to result in war
