    Using violence to make people adopt our way of life. Huh. Maybe we should ask every imperialized group how that worked (Africa and Americas). Or things like Iraq.

    Suggestion of improvement: at the end of your videos could you please have them talk about what they have learnt from each other during their conversation? We always see both sides but ironically never actually see the participants reach a "middle ground" and getting to hear what they think would greatly improve these videos.
    Besides that, enjoyable as always, thank you for the content.

    I like that a pseudo-Christianity “necessary war is evil”. The human families, societies and civilizations are selfish. A society is structure toward murder. Narcissistic sociopathic leaders and psychopathic leaders get power over us by stealing our lives, our families, our productions, our properties and our comfort-zone using war and propaganda.

    I hate when people throw hate at active troops or veterans. I understand that war is bad, pretty sure everyone does but that doesn’t mean you have to disrespect them. Spitting in their food when they use their discount, arguing with them because of their PTSD service dog is in a store, etc. Plus not all troops/ veterans are “killers”. There are different jobs in the military that doesn’t involve being at the front line of war and not everyone joins for the same reason (poor and the military will be their step up in life, has no home, wants to go to college etc.) not everyone has money or resources to succeed in life. Either way, don’t disrespect them because they’re still a human being just like you.

    Lol there is never going to be peace in the world which again liberals support this stuff conservatives tend to be smarter about things. Even then it’s like temporary but ideals of people’s culture won’t let that happen like pure Islam as in that won’t change they will always hate us. Maybe but very unlikely an alien invasion would bring us together but then people would rebel ‘‘ peace movements’’ 😂 Na no such thing as true world peace

    This episode was so much more peaceful than I expected. Nothing but respect for both groups. I think war and violence in general should be avoided whenever possible (which I think is most of the time) but I do NOT resent or disagree with the soldiers. It's an incredible service they're are doing us. On the other hand I also fully support peace activism and think that it would solve so many problems. Thanks for this episode- it was really great to see both sides of this. And again- respect to both groups.

    At 3:00 i wish he would have mentioned that the USSR (a ally of the US at the time) killed just as many Jews as the Germans, for the exact same racist reasons, over roughly the same period of time. The US joined the war on the side of a Soviet Union, a country that was equally anti-semitic as germany at the time.

    The statement for this topic shouldn't be understood as "if I die, there WILL BE world's peace". It should be asked as "would you sacrifice your life for a chance that there might be world's peace".
    I'm pretty sure that, that changes a lot and there wouldn't be as much of "of course!" people. And this migitates line between soldiers and "peace activists".

    It bothers me that the guy in the white shirt says “to get them to accept our culture.” I think the point of world peace should be to understand and respect other cultures while not always agreeing. To force our culture on others would be to destroy another’s culture. We are stronger as a world when we have different ways of thinking and problem solving.

    As much as I wish we could have world peace I don't think we'll ever have it because there are so many different customs, cultures, religions, etc which do not go well with eachother at all (like islam and the west, they don't go) so I don't think we'll ever have it which is really sad but true.

  • Montana

    Ok the last question made me tear up. I have a Vietnam and Desert Storm Veteran grandfather and I think one of the saddest stories he ever told was about a friend he lost. He was in the Air Force at the time and before going over a Marine who he'd grown up with in Boston gave him a pocket knife and told him to return it when they got home. The day before they went home the Marine died and he still has that knife, it one of his most precious treasures not for monetary value, but for the emotional value it has.

    The last part of this middle ground made me cry, the part about wether they knew someone who has died. This thought really scares me because my brother is going to the military after high school and I deeply fear that something like this will happen. It makes me cry every time I think about it, I can’t stand the thought that I might never see him again.

    To the African comment, the % of people who commit those acts are really small, usually coming from a traditional or religious mindset, isolated village away from cities etc. Many people (mainly women activists) from those cultures do a lot of work to educate the people (mainly men) on their wrong practices and try to put a stop those practices. However, Africa as a whole DOES NOT PRACTICE THOSE ACTS. His comment through me off. Why didn't he pick an act that his own people commit that he doesn't like and wage war against them.

    That is the biggest lie peace activists try to convince themselves. That man doesnt have an inclination towards violence. Its rooted it the right to life and self defense. If you're not willing to defend your life (or the lives of those you love), you dont deserve your life. Its not about being a man, or woman, or even pride. Its about being human

    The example with genital mutilation was nonsensical. Most countries have banned it but have weak law enforcement, and yet there is a decline in it's practice. How does it make sense to try to eliminate a violent practice by causing more violence, women and children are always the worst victims in a war. Who do you even declare it to lmao the elders in villages? You can't force people to change their mentality and beliefs by attacking them, if anything this would make them even more resistant to change. Shows how a typical american thinks about their country. Also at the end of the video, when they're thanking for the sacrifice of invading other countries.

    Listen... (most) everybody wants peace, That doesn't exclude vets or even those who still fight, Here in Canada our military are called "Peace keepers" because we intervene a fight to try and make peace. In saying that if it weren't for your military you'd have no protection from the outside world that want to cause you harm, and im sorry but laying flowers at an armed mans feet is not going to protect you from have a bullet put through your skull.
