    I went for $1 billion. The only way to have "world peace" would be to make everyone mindless zombies (I often make reference to The Time Machine when I'm debating with somebody). $1 billion would be more than enough to bring peace and happiness to those that matter to me.

    A Miracle.....

    would be needed for peace to ever come about. I think the only possible hope would be an invader from space we could all hate and kill togeather.
    Think of all the poor people in the weapons trade who would be out of work and suffering without our daily dose of hate & death.

    Peace (I assume here we are discussing some utopian concept of "world peace" here) or money? I dunno....it would kinda depend on "what kind of peace" and "how much money" wouldn't it?

    The Soviet gulag's insured guests would get a certain amount of peace...but it wasn't any fun to be there. When we are all bending under the same whip, we would certainly be peaceful folks, wouldn't we? Peace I want, but always ask at what price. I can tell you that there has not been a lot of peace in my lifetime. Even in those times when I thought we had peace, there was not peace everywhere. And there is no peace like the peace of the DEAD, but I dunno if I wanna go there before my time to find out how good it is.

    Soooooooo....we come to "money."

    Since we are "blue skying" this, let's say it would hafta be a LOT of cash. More than I could possibly load into my Bronco, I will tell thee that! We are talking about a big, big, number here, ladies and gentlemen. A big, big, big number. If I had it, y'all would each get a new car just for shaking my hand. It may be a Yugo, but it would be a NEW Yugo.

    Wow! I guess that makes me a materialistic, reactionary, parasite! Don't worry, though. It ain't ever gonna happen.

    Well, I used to want to save the whales. Does that get me any points? Not in Japan, I'll bet. Oh, well! *big grin* Whatchagonnado?

    Hmm! Wasn't that basically the plot of "Independence Day"?

    Indeed! We can't afford to have more people out of work if we didn't have weapons and stuff to build!

    well look at it realistically, peace on earth (as in no fighting what so ever) is never going to happen no matter what you do. Someone is always going to get pissed off about something and threaten to blow someone up.

    So I would take the money (hehe) use a massive chunk of it to try and better conditions in the world and then use a little bit to look after me and the ones i love

    Maybe I'm misunderstanding this whole thing, but one of the options is peace, yet people are saying 'peace could never happen'. But isn't that the point of the question; saying that we can have peace, regardless of how likely it is? Oh well, whatever.
    The biggest problem with being better than everyone else is that people tend to assume that you're pretentious.

    Just give me enough money - with enough money, you can buy peace, at least for a big part of the world.
    True 100% world peace will probably never happen, that's quite unrealistic - I'll agree with jieshi there.
