Solving Conflicts Without the Use of Force
There have been, and will be, many conflicts in the world because of the many economic, ethnic, and cultural differences among nations, as well as the unequal degree of industrial development, which are unlikely to disappear in the foreseeable future. On the other hand, due to the remarkable progress of technological means of communication, transportation, as well as destruction, a single local conflict can quickly grow into a global one. At the same time as complex economic systems have covered the entire world, the gigantic nuclear strategies of the two superpowers have been encompassing the whole globe, extending to outer space. There is no doubt that any local conflict can easily ignite a catastrophic war.
