Some people believe that it is possible to make real the dream of permanent world peace. However, in my opinion, realizing world peace is a remote possibility for the following two reasons.
To begin with, difference in value often prevents people from reaching mutual understandings. There are various religions and ethnic groups around the world, which means that the world has different people with different ethical beliefs. Because of that, more often than not, they cause diplomatic problems, sometimes ending up millitary confrontation. History demonstrates numerous examples of armed conflicts brought about by gap in values, including the long-standing Israeli-Palestinian conflicts and the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
