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?

you can use:

  • Reason
  • Civilize
  • Settle
  • Respect
  • Live
    Those are a few....

Sorry if i used one's that were already mentioned...

eradication - and by this I mean eradication of everything.

There'll be no one or nothing to fight with or over.


That's what came to my mind as well :)

...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.

Hmmm... are we allowed to use acronyms? Like that ridiculous acronym considered as "YOLO"....

Exactly... except we'll make it YOLOSDMWSEL!

(You only live once so don't mess with someone else's life)

... pretty good acronym... but kind of random.... :/

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 are probably right...

How many people agree with Reverend Jim; this will help me decide whether to closethis thread or keep it open.

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.
