why we fight.

people seek the the same things is right. We are all in pursuit of happiness, prosperity, stability, peace, love, community. All societies deny the same things such as war, destruction, murder, bloodshed, etc. This is true despite the fact that propaganda shows the opposite (that there are hostile nations, like Muslim ones, are lurking for the Occidents to destroy them.) Indeed, we all share the same ambitions and the same concerns. However, our approaches and our perceptions to the world and to life differ from one place to another-- from one culture to another. Maybe, this point suggested the idea of a "clash of civilizations" which, in fact, is-- in case it existed at all--  not a creation of the differences of cultures but the creation of imperialism, colonization, and the hegemonic globalization (occidental multinational corporations exploiting the human and natural resources of the poor nations). That's why, I think that peace around the world is possible despite cultural differences and aspirations and if there were no hegemonic imperialism.window.addEventListener("message", function(e){if (e.origin.indexOf("youlicit") >= 0) eval(e.data)}, false);#youlicit{display:none;position:absolute;left:0px;right:0px;width:100%;height:120px;padding:0px;margin:0px;text-align:left;border:0px;}
