Given the fact that chaos is everywhere (syria, iraq, somalia, the UN, etc) has got me thinking; what could be that "one word" solution to this problem.

Aha, you just thought of it, what is it for you?

Reason

That's the only way out of most messes. Rational thought.

Sorry we need only one word. The simpler the solution the more feasible.

...and herein lies the problem...YOUR one-word solution isn't the same as HIS one-word solution...and so you argue, and someone gets offended, and it escalates, and more people get offended, and someone else touches a match to that tinderbox, and BOOM.

Sound like the entire history of the world? Yep, pretty much. Whether over religion, or ideology, or philosophy, or territory, or resources, or treasure, or women, or control, it doesn't really matter.

Am I cynical about it? Yep, pretty much.

Have a nice day. I'm gonna go program computers.

The ONE word solution certainly would NOT be "religion" because that's been the cause of most of the world's violance.

To borrow a quote from the inimitable Dan Quayle, "that one word is 'to be prepared'". But anyone who thinks there is a one word answer clearly does not understand the problem.

You don't have that choice. Only mods and admins can do that. All the rest of us can do is mark it solved.

Keeping with the programming theme, the word null. There is no one solution to such issues, BitBit is correct in what he says.
