The study of the effects of risk relates to the extension of time and the permutations and combinations of events in their progressive unravelling. The notion of modernity, an evolutionary justification for a turbulent array of hazards, drives rapid change, the majority of which is irreversible. Wars bring about irreversible change, which has far-reaching consequences for future generations. We start to grasp the impact of these shifts as we experience them through time, and we research, write about, and learn from them. Understanding the impact of post-war change requires contemplation. The aim to develop stronger post-war communities necessitates a reflection on how conflicts have separated mankind and how humanity’s nature might be used to serve others. The plans that are made and the decisions taken, especially by those in positions of influence, carry greater weight in terms of the speed at which risks to humanity evolve if not addressed in time, along with their corresponding effects. As we journey through age and experience our own wars, we can choose to blindfold our way through time or rise above with strength to reach out to others, a process which in truth brings about self-actualisation.
