How can we achieve ‘Peace on Earth’ in the near future?

Peace on Earth by Patrick HascallI honestly think the only way to achieve worldwide peace is for everyone on Earth to understand love. When the priorities become less about “me, me, me”and more about “you,” then the world will know peace. When the world wants what’s best for our neighbors just as much as we want what’s best for ourselves, then the Earth will know peace.

I don’t think we can ever achieve world peace. Conflict is necessary for growth and realistically too many people have too many opinions to be able to achieve this.
– Malia Medeiros

We can achieve peace on Earth through global nuclear disarmament, proper food and energy distribution and better global communication and tolerance. It’s a tall order, but if we educate the youth of the world, then the next generation could be less focused on attaining status, power and retribution (religious or racial), and be more focused on global improvement and efficiency. I think that would stamp out war, but only if we educate on a massive scale.
– Megan Jessee

I believe the only way we can ever achieve peace on Earth is by accepting everyone for who they are. Then by learning about and understanding other cultures, races, and religions, the world may be at peace with one another. We always compare the differences in one another; let’s start sharing the commonalities we have with people around us.

I’m not sure that “peace on Earth” is possible for the main reason that there are too many self-serving individuals who thrive off greed. Money brings power, and power is something most people desire in life. Eliminate greed and the desire to rule and we might have a greater chance at world peace.
– Jared Matsumoto

There are a few ways. First, get rid of religion. Most wars have started over religion. Next, get rid of labels for people like “black man,” “white woman.” They’re only one race, the human race. I feel if we did not have either (of these things), the world would be in a more peaceful place.
– Edward Humphrey

I think we take the whole military budget and spend it building basic structures (schools, clinics, etc.) in impoverished countries. Peace on Earth is equality and how can we ever expect to achieve it with huge social and economic gaps between people and nations. Not only do we spend money on wars and violent crimes in other nations, but it leaves death and destruction in its wake. So it’s a lose-lose for everyone ultimately. While there is still inequality on Earth, peace will never be attainable.
– Jesse Rowell

If we really want to achieve peace on Earth, we would have to get rid of a few things in order for this to work. We would have to eliminate currency. By doing this, we would eliminate greed. In my opinion, greed is the root of all evil. Second, people are not going to like this, but we would have to get rid of religion. Almost every altercation, genocide and war was/is brought on by religion. Everyone thinks that their god is ‘the god’ and is unwilling to accept othersʻ beliefs. I’m sure there are many more (ways to achieve peace), but to me, these are the two majors facing the world.  Unless itʻs changed in some way, the world will never know peace.
