An exploration of the problems of international war and peace. The abolition of war and the establishment of a world government are impossible; therefore, peace must be advanced by alleviating injustice without violence and by regulating war. Avoiding ideological and race wars in which willful destruction is uncontrollable would advance peace: current policy debate on Vietnam, for example, could be swayed if the USSR were to abandon its classic communist doctrine of the just war. Modern science cannot control war or peace; only man as a political being can constrain himself.
