If you want it to be.
Don’t confuse the stopping of a war with the growth of peace. It is true that you can’t have peace until the fighting has stopped (by definition) and that has often been done by the sword, but peace is kept and spread through leadership, diplomatic action and economics, in today’s world.
This is a new century where global economics are set to replace the sword. You’re thinking backwards, not forwards.
Fighting, skirmishing, battling, terrorism all will continue. But war is over.
