People have been making war with each other for thousands of years as well, you know.

As horrible as it is, war is mankind's greatest incentive to innovate. Nothing inspires people to create amazing (and sometimes terrible) things better than their desire to survive and emerge victorious over their foes.

Yes, I agree about that. Conflicts between people are certainly inspired by hunger for power which comes in many diffrent forms; money, fame, political and military influence...
It is natural becouse power gives us ability to survive, but people often can't keep the balance and they forget about the fact that morality is more important than mere power.

I have to say  that I disagree. Wealth, in my mind, has been the greatest incentive to innovate.

anarchists are too disorganised to get the rights they want unlike communists who are organised internationaly and help each other from across the border from countrys that are already communist.

... what decade are you from? Communists did that for around a century starting about 130 years ago.

Also, you posted over 2 years too late.

I got it! Time traveler. Totally called it. Either that or a younger relative of Kohr-Ah Primat.

I don't understand that exactly. I work on hypothetical physics whether there's a war going on or not or whether I'm in a communist society or a capitalist society. Personally I don't want to work on anything for a war, I'm tired of humanity being limited to this planet and I wanna see a warp-drive get made or at least a hyper-drive. And then there's also asteroid defense or mass-defense. Basically, there's people who have no need for war or to be incentive's by money, there's many people who are driven by pure inspiration, seek progress or seek further knowledge, so don't be so gloomy.
Perhaps one day man-kind will be "mature" enough to not seek war and dominating others when there is a lack of government, but for now it seems it is needed so that it's members have enough resources to have specialization in their work forces to fuel the development of greater technology. Governments have a specific purpose and there's a good reason for why when one falls that many others are born.
