Nationalism creates a division in society as nations begin belonging to their own specific classes. The mindset of divided nations and conquering those of less worth, led to the necessity of militarism. That militaristic mindset, promoted aggression and approved violence. Militarism was funded on the idea of building a strong military in comparison to other, especially the neighboring nations (“The 4 Main Causes of World War One”). It created a culture of paranoia and a lust/need for competition, to prove their nations worth; which resulted in a larger pressure to act out aggression.
War is the highest form of struggle, existing since the emergence of social divisions, for settling contradictions between classes, between nations, between states and religions, or between political groups at stages of their development. Since time immemorial, we had been separated and divided by our constructed social aspects in our community and has been raging war for equality ever since. Our human nature is flawed and we cannot eradicate its system. As long as human depravity threatens the society, human nature and ideological change will always cause war that threatens to world destruction. According to the Heidelberg Institute for International Conflict Research, ideological change is the most common cause of conflict and root of most wars in all of history.
War is all about spectacles. Spectacles are the main tool used in war. It is used to both instil fear as well as to stir the hearts of other to provoke action. To start off, war spectacles are often used to inspire men and women into action.

Propaganda helped the recruitment process with the large amount of men wanting to enlist.
While France, Russia, and Britain became early on allies. and America eventually joined to help its allies, due to unrestricted submarine warfare (Adelblue “An End to the Great War”). Militarism, alliances, and nationalism fueled one of the worlds biggest wars, World War I. Militarism was one of the main causes of World War I, and was started by Social Darwinism. Each of the countries involved used their militaries to eliminate weaker groups and nations. This caused tension, leading to armies and navies expanding in each nation (Adelblue “Setting the Stage for War”).
All three of these evidences display to us the fear, tragedy, death and casualties that have swept over Sri Lanka because of the civil war, this displays to us the societal change brought on by the conflict of hate and fear. Consider this last excerpt “[This isn’t Brussels or America. Only the weapons in this country are state-of-the-art]" Upon examining both this excerpt and Palipana’s transition into solitude from the war, it is evident that the civil war has changed the society into a deafened state as well as a terrorized state when considering the witty yet detached notion Sri Lankan citizens such as Sarath have assigned to the war.

First, the theory reminds us all that the actions we undertake can have unforeseen consequences. Specifically, the theory reminds us that war is an affair that cannot be predicted. The self-organizing complexity of the systems offers a highly accurate description of the international order. The international order keeps on changing and is a self-adapting system of independent agents that continue to get more complex. Since the international system has been growing more complex since World War II, this model seems appropriate.
Lord of the Flies has many parallels with our real world both historically and currently in 2018 with leaders such as Adolf Hitler and Kim Jon Un, who have proven that mankind itself is the principal threat to our civilisation because of man’s inner evil and greed for power. I will today convince you how the main threats to civilisation and social order both in the play and our real world is definitely humanity itself. “Which is better - law and rescue or hunting and breaking things up? To have rules and agree or to hunt and kill like a pack of savages?” These powerful questions are asked by Piggy in Act 3 of the play to the group of boys on top of the mountain just before he is murdered by Roger.

Joan of Arc. The consequences of this terrible war were impactful on both English and French sides and many brave heroes who fascinate both Catholics and non-Catholics arose including St. Joan of Arc.
