    Activists? What're those? A small group of radical ideologues reinforcing each other. Hardly any effort required. They should get educated people for these discussions. Does the world even know world peace and how if such a thing work? I'd highly doubt it.

    I'm confused coz the vets said they wouldn't die for world peace but if they think that what are they fighting for. Like isn't the ultimate goal of war, peace. Maybe misunderstood can someone please explain it to me if I have.

    Everlasting peace is something we will not be able to fathom. To get it, everyone must agree that peace is good but not everyone is like that. Peace is short-lived because violence can sometimes be a necessity, something to counteract another's violence. Of course, you can obtain it through war and violence but that just makes "obtaining peace" a necessary evil.

      I don't want to be disrespectful, because the coast guard does great work and puts their asses on the line for people on a daily basis. I don't think this discussion was about service, it was about war and active engagement. I don't want to pretend to wrap up the intention of the talks because everyone takes something different from it, but I don't think it was about nuances of the ways people could be in the military.

    We wouldn't need people to be veterans if we had peace talks and agreements in the first place, we wouldn't have problems like isis if the past generation hadn't lied about "weapons of mass destruction", most terrorism comes from revenge because of what the west has done to the east

    War is wasting the taxpayers money and for what? Everyone says their fighting for our freedom, no freedom was won way before some of us were born. There is no need for us to go to war just because you think we should it's the other countries problem to deal with we have our own problems to deal with, you're just killing your own citizens when you send troops overseas. They come back with PTSD and flip out on any little thing and can't go back to living a normal life and some end up killing themselves cause they can't take it anymore. I know I've experienced it first hand my uncle who was a SG. in the army who was in the Desert Storm war has PTSD and is all messed up in the head, medical problems. War is not the answer fix your own country before fixing another.

      +Tron Tron Vulgar Fly? Good one, they lose their lives by going over there and creating war with has nothing to do with them a**hole. Dying for a country that already has freedom but yet destroying one that doesn't using our money to fix what they destroyed it makes no sense that you support stuff like that.

    Hello to everybody from america or to the peoples that share the same views. There is something that has been on my mind for years now: Why do you as American value the military and Soldiers so much? I come from Switzerland and here we don't share the same "fascination" (for lack of a more fitting word).
    If anybody would be willing to take their valuable time out of their day to share their thoughts or insight with me I would really be grateful. Thank you and have a nice day.

    War is an ignorant man's solution to a lack of unity.
    Don't fight wars with guns and marketing. Fight with books, awareness, and education.
    Only reason people go into other countries on behalf to conduct is to (1) take their resources (2) set up a system where home country gets rich or (3) spread religion.
    For once, I'd love to see people going into other countries ready to die just to put a collection of books into another person's hand. And no, not the Bible.

    I’m very pro-military, pro-gun, and I consider my self a patriot. I absolutely loved all viewpoints on this video. Especially the views from the activist with the beard. He eloquently displayed his views and I loved the way he spoke. I think war IS evil. But it’s a necessity evil as talked about. I think as humans we will never see the end of violence. Sad realty.

    Damn it's almost kinda sickening to hear the activists talk about giving their life for world peace when all they've ever done is give speaches about peace while the veterans have strived everyday when they were on duty to be able to have world peace without having to give their life but yet willing to give it if it is required, and I guarantee most of them have been in a situation where they've thought that they were going to be giving their life for an attempt to make the world closer to having world peace while the activists just sit at home protected by their military and veterans, bc of the veterans this pussy ass niggas r alive. Like this niggas are just sitting there talking abt how they've lived a good life and how they dont wanna die but would for world peace, while the veterans day after day didnt even know if they were gonna go home like this niggas probably got some PTSD and the activists are just talking about dying like its nothing

    Good grief, stopping genital mutilation has been achieved by bringing women form another culture to speak to groups of women about the health problems, men to speak to men, developing a core group of villagers that stop the practice. This core group of local people become teachers about the medical problems associated with fgm and go out into other village to speak and encourage the others to stop the practice and to become teachers...and if that doesn't work, women have started their own villages where no men are allowed. No war or violence necessary. Please look into community organizing.

    4:58 - 5:14 This is starting to sound like the same logic and reasoning that colonizers used when they colonized Africa stating that they were ‘saving Africans from their savage ways’. What makes you think that you’re entitled to come into someone’s home and tell them that their customs do not align with yours and are thus wrong and should be changed even through violence?

    With what Adam said in the beginning of the video that the military brainwashes soldiers is not true, That the military makes you give up personal believes to fight in war is not true . For example in world war 2 there was a soldier by the name of Desmond Doss who went to war without a gun do to his Christian believes, its a true story, he fought on Okinawa at hacksaw ridge as a combat medic without a weapon and saved 75 lives. Trough out his time at boot camp his commanding officers told him that he needs to pass rifle qual "qualification" to pass boot camp but he refused and while the rest of his battalion members made boot camp hell for him he didn't quit

    "The only way we can get them to accept our culture is through violence" WHAT???!!!!! I'm East African born and raised in Tanzania. We have many different tribes and traditions and cultures. Whites do not HAVE to convert us for accent their culture. If they don't accept our culture, where is the need to compromise with us? There needs no compromise when you can just leave us alone. Let our culture be our own, you don't need to control it.

      yeah he said it like a white supremacist and I hated it too... but on the other hand having mutilated genitals is a major medical problem for those who have them (I know, I have them) something must be done to heal those with this medical problem to eliminate pain and infection and even some deaths that are caused by this practice of cutting. The something that must be done is just bringing in doctors to share more knowledge about the human body to help teach local people more methods in addition to their own to prevent death, infection, and pain. It needs to be a knowledge sharing. And I would hope African doctors could also share with doctors of other cultures the things they have learned so their methods can be applied to other cultures. Maybe they know of some herbs that are a good medicine that Europeans never heard of. Basically doctors from all cultures around the world need to talk to each other and share what they know so that all humans around the world can benefit from all of the knowledge from the world's doctors. :)
