The soldiers were merely following what the leaders of their countries wanted, because if the decision to go to war had been left up to the soldiers without the influence of propaganda, they would avoid these conflicts. This shows that the people do not truly go to war, it is their leaders that go to war. World peace is possible if leaders avoid making the impulsive decision to attack other countries. With independent sources of media and the advent of democracy, it is now more difficult of leaders to motivate their people to go to war and it is less likely that poor leaders are chosen to command a country. It is not unfeasible for every person to fight his or her flaws to become a happier, wiser person who would not fight with others.

Partial Success "We train our commanders the way we do because that's what it takes – they have to think in certain ways, they can't be distracted by a lot of things, so we isolate them. You.
