Thus as all past enlightened people have realized the way through, the way out, the way to better for all, is a path of peace but only can be brought into being through first being in a condition of such within ourselves and thus humanity speaking, as a more enlightened humanity.
What does "enlightenment" have to do with failed states?

War zones bring this truth home to those in them. War zones even do attract some who want to bring it about too. Many miracles happen even in such zones. It is not the war zones one should think of sometimes but the zones without war
And what "zones without war" are these? And how are they created? Are you saying that war comes only to the "unenlightened", and that all people have to do to prevent a war is be "enlightened"? Sounds good on paper (well, sort of), but it avoids a central truth: that you don't have to want war to be at war. Regardless of the state of your soul, the war will come to you. Millions of people died in the Congo. Do you think they died because they were warlike or unenlightened?
