As of 2019, the number of people in the world is 7.674 billion and there is always and percentage of bad people. People are ready to do bad things, people than can sacrifice and doom all of humanity to get what he/she wanted. In the course of history, we see and learn many people like that, people that kill or order to kill other people just because of their difference in belief, race, and religion. In history many deaths are because of wars, nations that want to expand territory and power, some wars are fought to gain economic dominance and let other nations suffer.
With all the blood and tears shed in the past, still many people long for this kind of war or era. Until now many endless wars are being fought just to establish dominance or power. Humans never learn of the lessons and consequences that wrongdoings can make.
Every year we pay tribute to many people that die in different wars, massacres, and other types of killings. Like in November 77 1918, we remember the end of World War 1, people back then are not satisfied so they make another war, World War 2 which ended on May 8, 1945. Yearly we remember those main wars and be sad about how many people die and how many lives were shattered because of the war.
Behind every war, massacre and slavery is a dictator, a president, or just a mad man that wants everything in his hand. A dictator that will sacrifice everything in order to achieve his goals, does not care how many people die or how many countries are involved. He only looks at the price.
