Can there ever be peace?

As long as this is their strategy, doubtful.

What say you?

For sure. It's th nature of Man and even apes to form groups for preservation. And in the case of Man it morphs into other things.

I would guess in 100 years or so you won't want to be alive

I would argue against the second sentence. Human nature hasn't really changed, only technology has. Sure, you can more easily gather many more like-minded individuals to your "side" but the opposite has that same ability to mass the unwashed masses.

Not to worry, Wonder Boy Kushner has been assigned to the case. I'm certain it will all be sorted out in short order.

In 40 generations (~800 years), we could all be acting like puppy dogs and peace will be upon us. I base this on a Soviet study on domesticating the fox. In 40 generations, they had completely bred out all aggressive behavior. Of course, they had to "reject" a few thousand duds along the way. If we applied this to humanity, we would merely need to sacrifice about 10B people, but the remaining 1B would be at peace.

Not until all religion is gone, the wealthy don't hold all the political and social power, and people start to free themselves from herd mentality thinking, become more open-minded, and stop viewing groups/races/etc as "us" and/vs "them".

For the most part, people are good with the exception of a very very very very small group of humans that create chaos, death, hatred and repress the less fortunate.

Well all but one Democrat in the Senate chose to destroy Brett Kavanaugh's life for political purposes.

Destroy his life? He's on the bench of the highest court in the land, making $250K+/year for as long as he chooses.

Until the thought of war and the threat of consequences for starting armed conflicts on any scale becomes unthinkable AND the value of human life is cherished at all levels, there will be no peace.

Really? All conflict is over religion?

Just because they failed, doesn't mean they didn't try.

Correct. The claim wasn't that they tried to, however:

Now that's thinking outside the box. I would suggest thinking "inside" the box in the future.

As long as we are human there will never be perfect "peace". It is not a bad desire or goal. Just not achievable.
