    Trade, tourism and cultural exchange would bring rapid development to populations hungry for peace and prosperity.

    That's what they said about the Soviet Union. What if it, or something like it, did happen? No originality?

    What if they all became 'fundy' Christians?

    That's what we thought about Nelson Mandela being released from prison, the Berlin Wall coming down, and (again) the fate of the Soviet Union. All these 'impossible' things happened.

    that is what caused a major decline in violence in Europe. Pagans were not only violent they practiced a lot of human sacrifice, of men, women, children, and animals, from the times of Ur right up to the 12th-13th centuries. One of the reasons the Romans despised the Gauls and Carthaginians was their practices of human sacrifice. The ancient Jews were singular in their hatred of it; the Hinnom Valley was a charnel house of human sacrifice among the tribes they called the Canaanites; they burned people with in such numbers and intensity the smoke blackened the walls of towns and cities in the path of the smoke. Jews and especially Christians were very unmurderous compared to their pagan contemporaries, as were Greeks and later Romans.

    If they were actually hungry for peace and prosperity, they would already have both.
