            There are many different reasons and causes that ultimately result in wars, revolutions, uprisings and rebellions on large scales.  The French revolution tool place in France during k1789-99. It was the Revolution against the monarchy and aristocracy which had unlimited privileges and powers.  They had let loose a reign of terror, suppression, exploitation and atrocities on the masses.  Therefore people en masse revolted against the boles, princes and privileged classes.  The French kin was taken prisoner and then executed; Gred thnker and philosophers like Montesquieu, Voltaire and Rousseau provided the revolution the ideological base, inspiration and impetus.

National sovereignty should merge into international sovereignty.  This is the only way to improve chances of better and prolonged survival, environment and healthy and meaningful living conditions.

Here is another fantastic piece if writing by Ivan who attended the advanced class and was asked to make a speech regarding a famous quote about war. Ivan chose to speak about Agatha Christie’s following quote.

One is left with the horrible feeling now that war settles nothing; that to win a war is as disastrous as to lose one.” (Agatha Christie)

The purpose of the present essay is to strongly support the point of view that war should be avoided at any cost, provided that it won’t cost lives.

We all know from previous historical experiences that war is no good and brings no advantages to the parts involved in a conflict, no matter who the winner is.

On those grounds, we’d better search for pacific solution to any serious disagreements between nations, otherwise they can eventually end up in armed conflicts.

Through all mankind history, wars have destroyed cities and their wealth and have also cost many, many lives, irrespective whether they are at the winners side or the losers side. What’s more, thousands and thousands of civilians have been killed or injured. So, it’s dead important we try any other choice before declaring war. We can’t, in the name of sovereignty, or even in the name of peace, go on killing one another.

Starting a war is a bit like easy, but we can never know exactly how to bring it to a stop. That’s why we must believe that things can still be done differently. It’s always worth giving peace a chance.

In short, war is for barbarians. Please, don’t even start such a stupid thing.
