Hi, need to submit a 1250 words paper on the topic The Nature of Humans to Wage Wars. War stories of torture and bloodshed are as prevalent today as they were centuries ago. Education, civilization, technology hasn’t changed human nature. Apparently, the world hasn’t been educated enough to bring peace and harmony in over 20,000 years.
It is as if wars are unavoidable, and people can only prepare for them. Either be prepared to defend or wage war and be the oppressors: any scholar, book on warfare, weaponry project wars in the future. Humans fought over women, territory, natural resources. In the future, wars will probably be fought while stealing or defending water resources.
There is already enough ammunition on Earth to kill its whole population over and over. Humans are apparently determined to destroy planet earth. The only known place in the cosmos that supports life. The human race is yet to develop technology for establishing colonies on the moon and Mars. The human population cannot afford a Third World War when countries are sitting on nuke missiles.
A tremendous amount of literature and cinematic artwork represent wars in its true form. Brutality, barbarism, torture, revenge, and punishment are all the same throughout the globe. Barbarism is specific to no country or nation. From Alexander the Great to the recent skirmishes in the Middle East, bloodshed and torture are the currency.
War movie 300 (2007), directed by Zack Snyder, is a fantastical exaggeration of battle at Sparta. Sparta was a suburb of Greece. Its soldiers defended their homeland against the massive army of the Persian Empire. However, the movie indulges audiences in fantastic details of warfare tactics, weaponry, and heroism. But for this paper, it is better to stick with the reasons behind this war.
