True Meritocracy

Self-defence & Intervention

Individual citizens, states, nations, and continents should have the ability to deter enemies foreign and domestic. However, weapons of war have developed to a point where it is mutually suicidal to go to war. This is why current and future conflicts are more likely to leverage subtle tools like economic, cultural, ideological, biologic, demographic, and cyber warfare. 

Recent history is littered with many regional conflicts, and examples of failed interventionism. We need to realize the interconnected reality of Earth. We need to make it increasingly costly, self-defeating, and difficult to solve conflicts through acts of war. Our ultimate goal should be to neutralize the ability to enter suicidal wars.
