Find Out How Peace and Tolerance Can Make This World A Better Place to Live In
If we look around ourselves, we realize that this world is slowly turning into a warzone. So many conflicts arise every day in different parts of the world. Some conflicts arise due to the difference of opinion, some arise because of territorial reasons, but the root cause of every battle is lack of tolerance.
Today, when the world has turned into a global village, it’s essential for peaceful co-existence that we exhibit tolerance in our interactions with others. It’s only through peace and tolerance that we can make this world a better place to live in for everyone.
Following are some of the advantages of adopting peaceful ways:
Minimum Conflicts and Wars:
As lack of tolerance is the root cause for many of the conflicts that result in wars, being more tolerant will significantly reduce the number of conflicts and wars. If all the nations in the world will resort to dialog to solve the issues instead of picking up weapons, this world will become more peaceful.
Improved Economic Conditions:
Most of the countries in the world reserve a perfect percentage of their economy for the perpetuation of their weapons to strengthen the defense of their country. It happens mainly because most of us live in a constant fear that our enemies can attack us anytime. If we were living in a more peaceful world, this fear would not exist, and hence it will help relieve a lot of burden off of our economy.
Improved Way of Living:
In a more peaceful world, the countries will not be spending millions of dollars in getting ahead in the race of weapons. This money will instead serve to improve the way of living of the people. This money can help to provide more health facilities and reduce the percentage of illness-related deaths. This money can also serve to provide better educational facilities and hence increase the literacy rate.
Advancements in Every Walk of Life:
If we exhibit tolerance while interacting with people from other parts of the world, it will help us to get to know them better. With this mutual understanding, we can achieve a lot and make advancements in every walk of life. We can exchange knowledge and collaborate on projects and ideas. This, in turn, can give rise to new inventions and discoveries and even cures for diseases.
Reduction in the Crime Rate:
The benefits of peace and tolerance can be visible at a regional level too in the form of the reduced crime rate. Most of the crimes occur because of conflicts that arise from lack of tolerance. By promoting peace and tolerance, we can tackle the crime rate. An example of this is apparent from mishaps that happen as a result of road rage. Many people may even go as far as killing someone because of road rage. In a more tolerant society, these crimes will not occur.
Our world is slowly shrinking and becoming a global village, and the only way to benefit from this is by exhibiting peace and tolerance. If we are more tolerant of people with different beliefs, it will help us to learn more about them and their culture. Not only we can learn about their religion, but we can also teach them about ours. The more we will learn about each other, the closer we will come to becoming one big global village of people.
A peaceful world where people are more tolerant of each other is not only essential for us but is also vital for the survival of our future generations. Therefore, it is our duty that we do everything we can to promote peace and tolerance in this world.
