Large Scale Conflict and Wars

38.9 percent of those polled ranked the possibility of large-scale war as the most serious global issue. 

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

Wars mostly happens because of political and/or economic reasons. It causes the death of millions of  innocent people, including children.

In democracy,  leaders are chosen by the people as they have the right to vote. Because of this reality, the people of the democracy represent their country even when the nation is engaged in a war. The responsibility for the innocent deaths taken by war, is then shared by the people of that country.

Poverty and political, social, and economic inequalities between groups predispose to conflict; policies to tackle them will reduce this risk 8 out of 10 of the world's poorest countries are suffering, or have recently suffered, from large scale violent conflict. Wars in developing countries have heavy human, economic, and social costs and are a major cause of poverty and political reasons such as oil. Most current conflicts, such as in the Sudan or the Congo, are within states, although there is often considerable outside intervention, as in Afghanistan. In the past 30 years Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria have been especially badly affected by war. It took away homes, took apart families and result of millions of innocent people lives.

WHAT CAN WE DO ABOUT THIS?

Vote

We vote in every aspect of life, we choose how we want to live. Vote for peace in your lives and for others. Vote for the leader that will end these wars, bring peace.

Awareness
