    Actually, MOST conflicts had to do with things other than different opinions. for examplee, the holocaust was Hitler solidifying the power of his new Germany by attacking the wealthy, foreign group and taking all their stuff.

    YOUR OPINIONS SHOULD BE ASSIMILATED INTO A BROADER POSITION. FURTHER ARGUMENT IS FUTILE.

    No. But it might be started for glory.

    Or greed, frustration, pride, and a host of other human motivations.

    Disagreement is sometimes the pretext, sometimes the trigger, but rarely is any one thing the sole determinant of historical events.
