The world has always had some dispute or war carving soil. Today there is terrorism and rise of "rogue nations." Politicians seem more polar in efforts to say a message rather create mutual action. We didn't start the fire, fire's been burning since the world has been turning.
In not so recent film "Watchmen" a third world war threatens humanity during a more volatile cold war. Today, similarities of yesterday spring into the news - as threats of nuclear war, social instability, and internal dispute rocks countries abroad. However, a goal to unite the people in "Watchmen" was devised. A horrible action I would not agree with, but to simplify it would be explained as such:
to develop a common ideal that all may rely on. Look forward to.
Does this concept (of having a common goal) present a means to world peace or a waste of time?
But did you bother to watch?
