Do we really care about world peace?

The present race for stealthy weapons does not give any evidence/support to our desire for world peace. No soldier wishes to fight a war. Only political misunderstandings
and lack of leadership lead to war as a solution.

There are people in remote places who have no idea of the automobile, yet they sleep happily. Present modern man with so much incredible technology is trying to find a button to destroy the planet.

Please take my view leniently and comment.

    Ignorance is bliss..however ignorance does not contribute towards the progress of humanity.

      my regards to you. awareness is disease. being ignorant is a bless in certain fields.
      unknown diseases are invented and medicines are made. a machine decides the fate of a man.
      we human are drooping in humanitarian connectivity.

        Why do think awareness is a disease? Awareness is the key to being present in the moment.

        "unknown diseases are invented and medicines are made"
        Change is inevitable. Humans are evolving and adapting to these changes with ingenuity.

        "a machine decides the fate of a man."
        I believe that my life is in my own hands. It is very easy to attribute unfavorable circumstances to someone else...my humble opinion :-)
