英検1級2次試験:Is the world heading toward another global conflict?

Is the world heading toward another global conflict?

(世界は再び地球規模の紛争に向かっているか?)

 

I’m of the opinion that the world is heading toward another global conflict.

I have two reasons to support my opinion.

 

First, decreasing amounts of natural resources would be one of the causes of global conflict. For example, according to some data, it is estimated that fossil fuels will disappear from the earth within around 30 years. Under the circumstance, countries with a little amount of such resources including Japan would compete with each other, causing another global conflict worldwide.

 

Second, it’s very difficult for the United Nations to prevent warfare or conflicts from happening. United Nations doesn’t have organizations like police that patrol actions of member countries. Also, it doesn’t have a capability to stop so-called “war to self-defense”. Therefore, for example, once terrorism organization tries to attack another country, and the country fights against terrorists, United Nations has no choice but to passively observe their actions.

 

From these two perspectives, I believe that the world is heading toward another global conflict. (163 words)

 

【内容の要約】

結論:Agree

①減少する天然資源をめぐる争い

②国連にとって、戦争を止めることがかなり難しい

 

世界平和系のトピック(例:Is world peace an achievable goal? 等)でもほぼ同じ回答が使えそうですね。

ちなみに、②の理由については、以下の動画を参考にさせていただきました。非常に分かりやすくまとめられています。
