As much as I would love world peace, I give up my life for it. I would actually want to be here to experience it!

Sacrifice one life to save (potentially) hundreds of millions? Absolutely. I am shocked that "Yes, no questions asked." only got 9% of the votes (as of now).

A few reasons: war helps control the population (as well as disease, and other things people are bent on eradicating); it is human/animal nature; what would happen after the 20 years?; at what other cost does this "peace" come?; why should anyone die to prevent idiots who choose to attack each other from doing so; etc.

"idiots who choose to attack each other"

I will have you know that war does in fact kill the innocent who want no part.

There will never be 'World Peace'. Just the conflict between Arabs and Israelis Alone is a project big enough.

No. I finally come to the realization that it's not because it not long enough but people have different opinions on everything and people make mistakes, mistakes that spark controversy. Something as simple as puppies and kittens can spark an argument.

I picked "No, for other reasons". Like some other comments on here, I don't think world peace is ever going to happen unless we become slaves without free will. As much as I strongly dislike war and conflict, it's honestly not possible because humans will always come up with a reason or excuse to start killing each other. I hope the next poll doesn't stir up as much drama.

Even a seemingly innocent question like what are you going to buy your mom for mother's day will stir up drama. Did you read the comments on the question regarding what name do you call your dad , daddy or father or name ect? WOW, that question drudged up a ton of emotional baggage. World Peace is a pretty lofty goal considering we can't even get drama-free question/comments.

"Situational ethics", as this question is labeled by behavioral scientists, is generally a bad idea. "If there were
only four life vests and five people, which person would you throw overboard? As if there is no other solution to the problem. There are other answers. With this one, the question ignores the reality that man has always been at war with man, one way or another -over property, wealth, food, etc. No one person has or will ever have the power to "buy" world peace for a second by his own willing death. Jesus Christ did this, and He is God. No human has this power. Why do we still have wars if the Prince of Peace already died to save us all? Because WE have the power of choice, and without His love, guidance and power in our lives, we'll continue to perpetrate world, hunger, pain, sorrow, loss by our own choices, even the tiniest self-serving ones. They're all drops in the ocean of this world, and enough evil thoughts, intentions and acts will

You're 100% correct, ShawnaC123. As long as there has been human or animal life on this earth, there has been the inherent need to defend and protect one's self from predators. It's called nature and survival of the fittest and--anthropologically speaking--it will always be around. World peace is an "ideal" that cannot be realistically achieved.

It is not against human nature - it is against our current human culture. However, anthropologically speaking, this current culture has only existed for a blink of an eye in the existence of the human species. For the vast majority of our existence we were a very peaceful species. The majority of anthropologists agree that war and murder were very rare in prehistoric humans.

Ever hear of Cain and Able? 2 of the first people to ever walk the earth. Cain killed Able. Has nothing to do with current human culture. Brothers have been killing brothers since the very beginning.

the human race was only good for one week... the creation week and then Adam and Ave sinned and the whole world got messed up, and someone did give up their life (Jesus) but it didn't bring peace to the whole world only the Christians that believe in him, and there will come a day when the whole world is at peace the day Jesus comes back

I would give up my life no questions asked if there would be peace on earth for one day... whats stupid about this question is "knowing my family would be taken care of" its a dumb question because if there was peace then wouldnt they be "taken care of" already, to have everyone have 1 day in their life where there was complete peace, Id die for everyone to have that one moment in whole time span of human existance... no joke, would just suck I would never experience it myself. Ive actually already thought about this question but saying mroe like Id give my life for just one day to take away the worlds pain... just one day.

I totally get the "knowing my family would be taken care of" part. If you are the breadwinner and you die, who is going to provide for your family the rest of their lives? its a long term financial issue

I would, but according to many religions world peace symbolizes the beginning of the apocalypse. Who knows just how the world would turn out after those twenty years. And who knows what would peace truly means to someone. For instance, some people refuse peace unless a certain race is annihilated, so who gets the peace the person who wants the other race gone or the race itself? Someone has to be destroyed in order for this to happen. The world is a bigoted place, it would take a lot more than one life to change that.
