Psychology Of Peace And War

Psychology of peace and war

Peace and war are not fictional or political concepts, but they are embedded in us by default. These kinds of behaviors are in our nature. These both need to be addressed before jumping to the conclusion of this question: Why war? And then Why not peace?

War is not just an absence of peace neither peace is an absence of war, nor any other way around. War; is defined as an individual or collective effort of individuals or groups to achieve desirable goals or eliminate threats to one’s lives or necessities of life.

Peace is defined as a transformation process to avoid war and adopt any measure to resolve conflicts that are converted into war. Both are only related to the sense that one follows the other.

The psychology of war and peace is all about the mental processes involved in it and behaviors displayed to understand those behavioral patterns and cognitive processes that may occur—then the recommendations to accelerate peace processes and eliminate war and its destructions around us.

Let’s go to the first question; why war?

Immediate or prolonged conflict unresolved escalates emotions of frustration, anger, and resentment. These emotions are then expressed in power either physically or psychologically to defend and destroy or eliminate threats necessary for their existence.

Wars are not only fought on the battlefields but also in the minds of individuals and masses. However, there is no consensus among experts that precede and which follows. However, I agree with Joan of Arc that” most battles are won or lost in mind before it happens.”

There is no conflict over this notation that society influence individual and individuals influence in turn society. But it is a power game which is beyond the scope of this series of blog area.

We need wars to express our feelings and frustrations. We need it because we are programmed that we can do whatever we want to do if we have the power. These concepts are right in self-help literature, but in politics, it makes society into a graveyard.

The might is right or the other way around. We are watching the struggle of evil from the prehistoric period to wage wars against the power of good, which teaches us to live in harmony and peace.

Peace needs the courage to transform the human mind into a compassionate powerhouse generating peace to co-exist in mutually peaceful conditions. Individuals having inner peace are responsible for a more significant cause- peace, Eliminating, destruction of war.

Now it is time to discuss our second question; Why not peace?

For peace, we don’t need the power to influence society but courage- the inner strength to stay strong in front of fears and evil. Peace needs harmony, coexistence, love, compassion, and a deep understanding of human psychology. Peace needs dialogues wars that need weapons of destruction.

Peace includes all wars that exclude others; the consensus is that long-term war is a short-lived endeavor. Peace evolves while war erupts out of nowhere and takes everything everywhere. Humans are evolved as peaceful creatures; we only fight when there is an immediate danger to our lives.

Now in the modern age technology have taken place in every walk of life. It has changed war and peace, and all that comes in between.

Psychology helps us to understand the underlying mechanisms of both. That we are as responsible beings are responsible for both our thoughts and actions.

Our moods, feelings, and responses or reactions are socially engineered to decide to war mindlessly. At the same time, our whole being is interested in peace because it provides us an opportunity to nurture our talents and reap the benefits of our struggle.

Fake responses and autosuggestions, which are imposed by warlords, of this planet. Who takes benefits from war and peace both? They wage wars, advocate peace to satisfy their conscientiousness, and fool humanity into the champions of peace and heroes of society.

Those of us who have inner peace and try to make peace with others know what these games are for and how to play these games? Anyone from the above discussion can conclude that peace is our ideal environment in which every religion has prophesized in the imagination of paradise.

In comparison, war is the social learning or modeling of animals and only exists on this planet of apes. There will be detailed discussions of all possible mental processes and behaviors in upcoming blogs that accelerate peace and war.
