Kant’s belief of “democratic peace”
-democratic countries do not engage in violent conflicts with one another

-some think that relations among any group of states with similar social structures or with compatible values would be peaceful
-thirdly at the level of interstate relations neither specific regional attributes nor historic alliances or friendships can account for the wide reach of the liberal peace
-finally, wars occur outside the liberal zone because conflicts of interest are deeper there
-some say it is because citizens of democratic states bear the costs of war

2. scarcities growing much faster
3. consumption has far greater momentum than in the past
4. free-market price mechanism is a bad gauge of scarcity for resources held in common
