The love of money and things rather than people. This a deep thought elucidated from the Bible.

This sounds like it'd make a good book.

Have you read The Nameless Day trilogy? I think you'd like it.

If you want to go down that train of thought, really, the world is at war because of the concept of evil. Evil is such an arbitrary concept it's easy to turn against. But what is evil really? Evil is just different. One person is charismatic and mobilizes a bunch of people to kill a bunch of other people. Because the charismatic mobilized people to take away other's life force, and thus freedom, we call the charismatic "evil". However, the charismatic was fulfilling the natural cycle of population control. The natural cycles of the earth with it's checks and balanced needs to be kept in check until the average population maturity has reached the people of being able to maintain that balance artificially. Only then should the population be allowed to grow artificially. The advances in medical technology which have allowed such a staggering artificial growth to happen in the human population over the past 6 decades is not tempered by any maturity.

So, the world is at war because of evil, but evil is just the natural evolution of a balance cycle within an environment. The only way out is by artificially elevating intelligence in a homogenized society, and that will forcefully remove people's freedom. So, the choice is between authoritarian or self-destruction. Self destruction is more natural.

Evil is merely insanity so is not worthy of hate or resentment. And through that weirdness we become impervious to instigation. Giving it no purchase and catching it in the bud when we try to excuse our common spites.

The sanity of the masses has been worked against by a thousand year science of lying. Hence it is patience that saves the day.

The love of money is the root of all evil.
