Essentially, innocent lives must be in danger in order for war to be the just cause of action. With this in mind, comparative justice takes into account the idea that there may be rights and wrongs on all sides of the conflict, but in order to go to war, the suffering of one side must significantly outweigh the suffering of another (Just War Theory). This principle in particular is problematic in that it allows for gross exploitation in the political system, but more on that later. Politics, however, does play a role in these principles. The idea of competent authority dictates that only those authorities give power by the public may wage war (Just War Theory).
. Liberalist are thinking how to create a peaceful relation among country up to relation among individual and one of the sytemic and deeper explanation is brought by a German philospher, Immanuel Kant with his essay entitled “Perpetual Peace” . His thought drive the direction of liberalism. Immanuel Kant believes to resolve the situation at that time,they need to find ‘state peace’.

Anthony III Lewandowski (2013) pointed out that independence brings success like, “free trade with all nations, not just great Britain” (P.20). Economics innovation was an important factor Paine supports because he believed under the monarchy there will not be prosperity. He saw no point being stuck to one nation without the liberty of producing commerce with the entire world. The Author of Thomas Paine: Author of American Independence (2013) argues that there was a correlation between Paine’s vision about democracy and economy which says” Monarchies were more likely to go to war” (P.20). Pain was certain that monarchies were more liable to create warfare and mislead the economy.
1. Woodrow Wilson’s vision for world peace included open communication and cooperation amongst nations. According to him, this can be achieved if countries stopped making secret deals and if they refused to engage in conquest. He emphasized the latter by claiming that the word can transform into a safe place through self-determination; every country has a right to “determine its own institutions, be assured of justice and fair dealing by the other peoples of the world as against force and selfish aggression.” Wilson applied this idea for self-determination in Points VI-XIII, in which he stated that fixing boundary disputes would ensure autonomy. Meanwhile, the first five points involve Wilson’s recommendations for foreign policy that would promote peace: prohibition of secret deals, freedom of the seas, removal of economic barriers, disarmament of all nations, and adjustment of colonial claims.

Albert Einstein famously quoted that “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” In the past wars were determined a success based on tactical engagements. However, General political tactics to reduce violence and reestablish metropolitan governments in his area of operations. His foresight and cognitive reasoning of displaying generosity and decent humanity while maintaining a military authority in the area was more instrumental to the Iraqi people than imposing the United States military might. He stated, “If you don't want to have to kill or capture every bad guy in the country, you have to reintegrate those who are willing to be reconciled and become part of the solution instead of a continued part of the problem.” General Petraeus understood the key component to stabilizing not only his area of operations, but within the theater, was to empower the people in the region to govern themselves and be self-reliant.
Holding elections for government officials is a democratic feature of government, but the requirements were not equal. For the election to be completely democratic it has to be fair, all people must have a say in government. Despite their race, gender, or religion. Although colonial America’s government was democratic it had some undemocratic features like selective rights and unfair elections so the democracy was a work in progress at the time. With the distance from Britain helping with the planning of the government, over time the colonial version of democracy was improved.
There was one more main idea president Eisenhower wanted to get across to other countries and that was that together the world is stronger. Globalization was very important to the president he wanted to have stable trade route and help enhance the well being of the rest of the world. Of course the president wished to also have relationship with other countries that was not just one sided he wanted other countries to help if when they could. During his inaugural speech the president said, “Assessing realistically the needs and capacities of proven friends of freedom, we shall strive to help them to achieve their own security and well-being. Likewise, we shall count upon them to assume, within the limits of their resources, their full and just burdens in the common defense of freedom.” (par.
While on the other corner of the ring, the Federalists believed that the newly founded country would run best if the national government was strong and powerful and in effect if the Constitution was loosely interpreted. This started a series of issues between the two opposing sides with the Federalists pretty much winning every issue. From the issue of funding the war debt, whether a bank of America should be created, to the Alien and Sedition Act; the two sides did not see eye to eye. However, when Jefferson became president, it could be argued that the same abuse of power that he criticized the Federalists to have done could be argued against his own presidency. It is more than fair to say that Jefferson was a hypocrite not only from a Federalist standpoint but also from the
This is partly because the liberal system and ideology on which they were and still are founded and developed forces a kind of interdependence which would make war a counterintuitive action for both sides. The neo-liberal, or laissez faire, system of economics used throughout the
One of the primary underpinnings of the democratic peace concept is the idea of liberalism. Liberalism nurtures peace through free will and tolerance. On a larger scale, liberalism goes further by theorizing that this free will must also be characteristic of the state government. A democratic state is more tolerant and friendly not only to its citizens, but also to
