But when technology began to improve, people started to establish a symbolic relationship with one another despite the fact that many might have been enemies. Technology invention has brought us together in many aspects of life and peaceful interaction between groups literally becomes inevitable.

Before then, countries no longer care about one another and studies have shown that no one dares to migrate into another country without any hassle, thus causing enmity. The era of awareness to the rest of the world on helping one another has contributed a lot to peaceful co-existence between countries.
8. The era of stable governments
It is important to know that stable government is the key to peaceful times in our generation. In those days when there were social tensions here and there as a result of power pursuit, people don’t have peace of mind because violent conflicts have been the hobby against the innocent ones. However, as many parts of the world adopted democracy and helped provide mediation and deterrent for violence, it can be said that stable governments have been the key to this achievement.
7. The era of advancements in healthcare
It is good to understand, life isn’t sweet when you don’t have good health. No matter how rich you can be, when you don’t have the strength to enjoy your money there will be no peace in your life. Advancement in healthcare is among the biggest contributors to creating the most peaceful times in human history because this has allowed us to place greater value on life.

Availability of education to larger population worldwide is one of the major contributors to creating the most peaceful times in human history. It is important to know that living a primitive life can present a number of concerns – you hardly trust others, you won’t like to interact with others, and you would develop a selfish interest with “I don’t care attitude” towards others. However, the world will found peace when the larger population has access to quality education.
4. The era of implementing a common currency
There are countries that use a common currency for their day-to-day transactions.

The peace most countries enjoy today can be as a result of this idea.

The day vaccines were first introduced in the world with the improvement in medical innovations, marks the period that paves the way for improving the quality of life. And when life is valued, there will be peaceful cohesion among the population.
2. Sharing military responsibility for international conflict
Achieving the most peaceful times in human history may not be possible if every country folds its arm and let the world burns in times of conflict. Sharing military responsibility to tackle international conflicts has helped greatly in having a peaceful world. It is important to know that, after the World War II there has never been a case of serious military collusion between one country and another, and this has helped a lot in making the world a better place.
1. Cooperative alliances between countries (establishment of United Nations)
We are in the era where international community shows concerns on every calamity befalling a country, and that is one of the best things that has ever occurred in human history. Establishment of cooperative alliances between countries such as the United Nations, Organization of African Union, the European Union, etc has become the key driver in achieving peace and harmony around the world. In this generation, the United Nation has helped so many countries that are affected by violent conflicts, hunger, diseases, natural disaster, and more. Irrespective of the happenings around the world today, the most peaceful times in human history doesn’t get better than forming cooperative alliances between countries. Although, the United Nations and some other international or local unions are sometimes biased towards some countries but, in general, they prevented major wars.
In conclusion, it is important to note that despite all the drawbacks attributed to modernity, analysts suggest that we really are in the most peaceful time recorded in human history. However, it is our desire that in future, all the violent conflicts, terrorism, as well as killer diseases will be history and we hope for even more peaceful days to come.
