Ending War

I continue to edit philosophy. A while ago, I received a dense essay from a Ukraininan Cambridge postgraduate. One might not believe it by looking at it, but I simplified it. It deals with Kant's proposal to end all wars. But why end all wars? she writes. Kant's proposal may be worse than the wars themselves. The essay is titled (click here) Do We Need Perpetual Peace? It was published this week. OBSERVATION: The Christian view is that war is the result of sin. However, some Christian views consider that things are getting better. Postmillennianism, for instance, holds that "evil will diminish".
