Significance Of Peace And Goodwill On The Society
War and other kinds of destruction seemed to have taken complete control over the world. At this point, all we need is peace- be it world peace or mental peace. However, they are quite rare to find. Peace and goodwill are the only hope that every nation has right now, considering the current situation. Even though there is no actual war going in the world per se, the constant terrorist attacks and political conflicts have become major life threats for society.
Major factors affecting world peace and goodwill
What do we mean when we talk about peace and goodwill? These two terms are not directly related to one another, but indirectly they one needs the other. If there is no goodwill in this universe, there is no peace as such. This world needs more people with kindness, goodness, and compassion; there will be no peace. The hatred towards people in today’s time has become much stronger than love for one another. This is what threatens world peace at large. Apart from goodwill, there are so many other factors that affect world peace. These factors prevent goodwill and end up promoting toxic traits among humanity. Some of the major factors that seem to be threatening world peace for a very long time are:
- Political Interests and Conflicts
- Economic Crisis (Unemployment, Poverty, and Inflation)
- Environmental Crisis
- The exploitation of all resources
- Gender Discrimination
Effects of the absence of peace
People all over the world are constantly in a fight. Today, the fight is with the COVID-19 pandemic disease. There is hardly any peace and goodwill among people today. This is because of all the struggles and sufferings that they are going through regularly. A world without peace that can leave you feeling helpless, lonely, abandoned, and scared.
The fear of loss hinders and affects not only mental peace but also world peace. If we carefully take a close look at everything that has been happening lately, the only thing we would notice is the disruption of peace. The loss of life has taken a serious turn because of the disruptions that have constantly been happening worldwide for so long.
Promote peace and goodwill in the world
As citizens of this world, we must try to promote only peace and goodwill among humankind. The more we spread it, the better chances the world will have in finally attaining peace. We do not have to witness another situation like what happened in Syria or Kashmir twice. Hatred against mankind would not take us to the final destination where we would want to reach someday. It is very much necessary to start preaching and practicing peace instead of just constantly talking about it. The world needs to be in peace. Only then can it be a healthy place to live in.
