Freedom of Choice: whether that be religion or culture3. Meeting of Basic Human NeedsNow that it is understood the situation that must be present in a population in order for peace to exist, we can now look into the reason that peace proved to be so elusive in the 2oth century.1. Imperialism2. Nationalism
