    I never read this thread, until now. I have one thing to say to you:

    I don't really think that war comes from a desire to destroy other life. I think it comes from two things 1) greed for resources, probably fueled by a fear that another will take over the resources that we all need to survive, and 2) a complete lack of empathy, in the sense that we do not understand each other's motivations. I was just reading a story about Pocahontas, and it really struck me that all the conflict between her tribe and the people of Jamestown all came down to misunderstandings. The two groups completely misread each other's intentions, and attributed neutral and positive gestures as actually negative or aggressive gestures.

    One thing I really like about the personality types is that it helps us to understand each other bettter.

    Copy/pasting dictionary definitions isn't really an argument. Beauty is a subjective concept, not the first google result for 'beauty definition'.

    To bring myself down to your level:

    id·i·ot
    /ˈɪdiət/ [id-ee-uht]
    –noun
    1.
    an utterly foolish or senseless person.
    2.
    Psychology . a person of the lowest order in a former classification of mental retardation, having a mental age of less than three years old and an intelligence quotient under 25.

    There are positive and negative aspects of war. I'll leave at that, since I know some people here stoked to try provoke me into a flame war about this. :rolli:

    I'd be interested in hearing your views on this but I suspect you're right about a possible flame war, I'd be interested in Take Five's views too if he where around, although I dont know if he thinks about war per se or simply as an instrument of foreign policy.

    I dont think that war is good per se but I do think that it can be good in consequence, provided that it is just, and also in that it occasions the best in people aswell as the worst. So pretty much I'd agree that it has the positive and the negative. I dont think its beautiful though, that's a misnomer for war.
