40. Bringing the Violence of War under Control in a Globalized World

In the (little) time we still have left to find new solutions to the current crises collectively, if we cannot curb and prevent the wars that are rocking strategic areas of the planet, we run the risk of being caught up in an even bloodier spiral of violence than that which ended in the mass exterminations of last century’s world wars and genocides. We can assert that new world governance without control over the violence of war will not be achievable, or would be under constant threat. French General (retired) Jean-René Bachelet develops here a radical and innovative conception of controlling violence and invites us to take an in-depth look at the human condition. He also gives us an understanding of the ethical and political issues involved.
