Is war irrefutably bad?
A rather vague question I admit but allow me to elaborate.
When discussing war (referring to militairy warfare conducted between two opposing societies or ‘nations’ for the purposes of this discussion) many tend to agree that it is a bad state of affairs even when concurring with the reasoning and justification for said war, however this is typically based upon a moral standpoint. Has war been analysed from every angle and accordingly been proven to be irrefutably bad in all regards? Logically is war actually more beneficial than detrimental to us as a species? Is morality objective enough for one to design a valid idea on? From a Nihilistic perspective can we honestly state what war can be classified as? Do you believe that irrelevant of conflicting opinions war is in its entirety a good or a bad concept?
Please share your thoughts with me my friends.
