Perhaps there can be few people who haven’t wished to maintain the peace and stability in their life. If it’s correct so
what’s the exact source of tension, conflict and devastation among the different human communities ? In order to
answer this question, we must go to the different aspects of human life in different societies. Certainly strife and
wars in human history have been happening for basic needs. But there is a question ! Is war the only way to answer
our basic needs or there are other ways to solve our problems in contact with natural resources, the wealth or opinions that provide the context of conflict. To answer this question, we must search between different societies and
different entities to understand what create a culture of human society.
“Peace on a paper” is outlining the history of a civilization metaphor of human effort, in order to further convergence
peace and security on all those conventions, treaties and agreements.
