Here we are finishing our most joyous season, but this time is the worst we've experienced both domestically and internationally. One wonders what is wrong with mankind.
One answer can be found in the lack of overall governmental function that fails to bring order out of the present state of chaos. There have been attempts to do just that. The first instance was the League of Nations, which the United States did not join. The carnage and destruction of World War II brought about the United Nations. It is effective in humanitarian action but lacks giving us a world free of military warfare.
The core problem is that the nations of the world are very unwilling to give up any real degree of sovereignty, which leaves the world in a state of chaos. How to achieve world peace is the question. Perhaps there will develop a will to develop this as a result of necessity. Peace could at long last come about.
