Why have conflicts among people happened throughout history? many folks, both famous and ordinary, have tried to answer that question. Perhaps attribute dictates selfishness, and other people inevitably will come to blows over who gets what property or privilege. Or maybe, as an economic expert explains, it’s because the very idea of “PROPERTY” makes people selfish and greedy.

This recognition is that the basis of SOVEREIGNTY or the proper of a bunch (later a country) to be freed from outside interference.

A country, then, must not only protect its citizens from each other, but it has to organize to forestall outside attacks. Sometimes they need built the Great Walls and guarded them carefully from invaders. Other times they needled their followers to safe areas protected by high mountains, wide rivers, or vast deserts. Historically, they need raised armies, and also the most successful ones have trained and armed special groups to defend the remainder.
