World Peace is something that will never happen. Too many countries have too much military power and don't want to give in to any other country. War is something that the world is going to have to deal with because there has been very few years over the history of the world that have been war free. Like one quote by an unknown author says, "Peace is rare: less than 8% of the time since the beginning of recorded time has the world been entirely at peace. In a total of 3530 years, 286 have been warless. Eight thousand treaties have been broken in this time."
Albert Einstein, born on March 14, 1879 is one of the most influential people of the modern era. (Einstein) As a physicist he changed our understanding of the universe. He was very outspoken about the significant political and social issues of his time. As a Jew he advocated a moral role for the Jewish people. Over his scientific career, he was on a mission for the universal and indisputable laws that govern the physical world. Science was Albert Einstein's love, but he always found time to devote many of his efforts to political causes that were close to his heart. He strived for peace, freedom, and social justice. He became an active leader of the international anti-war movement. (Albert Einstein Archives) Einstein died on April 18, 1955. (Einstein)
Einstein said, "I don't know what kind of weapons will be used in the third world war, assuming there will be a third world war. But I can tell you what the fourth world war will be fought with- stone clubs." This means that whatever weapons are used in the third world war will knock us back in time because they will be so powerful. That is also the reason he doesn't know what they will be because they will be so far advanced compared to his time. This is very possible because of the advances some countries have made in their military strength. For example, the United States executed 1054 nuclear tests between July 16, 1945 and September 23,1992. They also executed two nuclear attacks in that period although the number of actual bombs tested in that time period is far greater.

- ◄ Gold-War-Sign of Peace ► Now, let’s go back to the not forgotten “four letter word”. “Gold” was the word our predecessors chose. With everything that comes with it including a bonus; an extra letter that figuratively speaking changed the spelling of gold to “Money”. Its weight, its vigor, had a big influence, and yes, its domination found the acceptance by the most who dedicated their lives to it. For the choice that was made we were hijacked. We see it and we pay the bills of their residual effects through wars, the atomic bomb, violence, crime, corruption, climate, nature, food, health, multinationals, and above all, our state of mind, including the psyche....

- Today, it is very difficult to have a new great power war. I do not believe that World War III is inevitable because the world is economically interdependent and the world has advanced far too much technologically. Being that China is the largest trading nation in the world, it plays a vital role in international trade, thus would not ignite a new great power war. Putin is a Russian nationalist, who believes in a powerful Stalinist country. His goal is to reverse the dissolution of the Soviet state.... [tags: World War II, League of Nations, Cold War]

- Coercion can be defined as forcing someone to do something they do not want to do. In order to determine if coercion will be successful or not one has to look at four key principles: communication, capability, credibility and compliance or “target will.” While the peace settlements after World War I could have been considered coercive, they probably had very little chance of success based on these four stated principles. France communicated that it wanted unreasonable demands including unlimited reparations for the war.... [tags: World War I, Treaty of Versailles, World War II]

- The period is the early 19th century; those involved and discussed in this essay are for the most part Russian gentry. Increasingly relaxed social mores in the “developed” world, including the greater freedom to choose to whom one gets married to as well as increased women’s sexual rights, were much more uncommon during the time that War and Peace takes place. Tolstoy, an outspoken critic of arranged marriages, uses the characters in his novel as a way of exploring the various types of love, and in general the interactions between men and women of the time....

- Since the dawn of humanity, man has waged war, whether to defend one’s self or nation, to protect one’s political stance, or straightforwardly, for revenge. In the late 1940’s Adolf Hitler began the extermination of the Jews. Simply asking him to stop wouldn’t halt his rampage. It took four long years of war to remove the evilest man on earth. No matter the conflict, sometimes war proves necessary to constitute long lasting peace. War has two out comes: one type of war breeds more while the other out come creates long-lasting peace....

- At the American University in 1963, John F. Kennedy summed up world peace as being: based not on a sudden revolution in human nature but on a gradual evolution in human institutions - on a series of concrete actions and effective agreements which are in the interest of all concerned. There is no single, simple key to this peace, no grand or magic formula to be adopted by one or two powers. Genuine peace must be the product of many nations, the sum of many acts. It must be dynamic, not static, changing to meet the challenge of each new generation (Kennedy 1963).... [tags: World War II, United Nations, Peace, United States]

- War and Peace probed into the human essence and its search for the truths of life. Tolstoy focused on two men to represent and carry the burden of finding those ethereal values. Throughout the novel, he utilized numerous images, symbols, dialogue, and foreshadowing to advance the progress of his characters. Yet, his most effective use of technical device can be found in describing the psychological thoughts and interior monologues of the characters. Most notably, the thoughts of Pierre and Andrei served to portray their spiritual changes better than by what they did, and also helped to foretell and build suspense to upcoming actions....

Billy Graham was born on November 7,1918, near Charlotte, North Carolina. In 1947 Graham became the president of Northwestern Schools in Minneapolis. In the next ten years Graham held evangelistic campaigns in all major U.S. cities and a series of rallies in Africa, Asia, South America, and Europe. Graham always had an interest in education and training Christians in the methods of evangelism. As his fame increased, he, his wife, Cliff Barrows, Grady Wilson, and George Wilson incorporated the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). In 1962 the BGEA began to investigate the possibility of holding seminars in combination with crusades. In 1974 the BGEA agreed to donate funds to build the Billy Graham Center on the campus of Wheaton College. In 1980 Graham dedicated the center. In 1992 it was announced by the BGEA that Billy Graham had Parkinson's disease, and he would be easing back a little on his busy schedule. (Billy Graham Center Archives)
Billy Graham once said, "We must have military power to keep madmen from taking over the world." What he is trying to say is if a country has a lot of military power that will deter someone from trying to take it over. It will make people think twice about trying to take over a country with a powerful military, but it won't prevent all attacks from outside enemies. Just look at what happened on September 11, 2001. The U.S has one of the most powerful militaries in the world and still got attacked. Hijackers ran two jets into the World Trade Center towers. Eventually the two towers came crashing to the ground. President Bush stayed in the air on board Air Force One shortly after the attacks, but later addressed the nation and said that he condemns evil and despicable acts and vowed revenge on whoever did it. (NYTimes) Some of the witnesses described the scene as follows: "I'm so scared", "It took an hour to get out. Sometimes it was calm and orderly, other times it was complete bedlam", " I thought it was an earthquake at first", and " People just kept jumping and jumping and jumping and you could still see they were alive because they were flailing around." (ABC News) Those were just some quotes from eyewitnesses. That is just one example of how a country with a powerful military can be attacked, but I think a powerful military is a good thing to have because it stops many of the attacks that would otherwise happen.
Countries are constantly trying to find ways, through nuclear testing and other types of testing, to become more powerful. They are doing this to protect themselves from things like the September 11th attacks, and every country wants to have the reputation of most powerful. That is why there will ever be peace throughout the world.
