Do Wars Lead To Progress?

laitman_219.03Question: You say that mutual annihilation leads to regression in the development of society, but ultimately doesn’t war usually stimulate productive forces?

Answer: Yes, wars stimulate forces of production, but they fail to contribute to society’s and people’s inner development, which is what really matters. On the contrary, they usher men into the next double helix, and therefore, technical progress is the only progress they bring.

Of course, if it were not for wars and threats, humanity would have developed much slower on a technical level, and consequently, in science and in other areas, but not in the social sphere.

Wars bring about society’s regression, not progress. The wounds that remain after wars take a very long time to heal and are practically incurable. They lurk somewhere inside as we try not to deal with them, but in fact, they disallow the construction of normal relations.
