People need to build bridges to a better future always and everywhere
The war becomes forgotten years after the end of the war, although people still suffer from the consequences of the war and the horrors they experienced. Modern wars blur the line between front and background. However, the war should never be forgotten, nor should all the victims of the war.
The trauma of war was first medically defined in the early 20th century. At that time, this term was called “shell shock”. It caused the interest of doctors who found that soldiers who did not actually have any physical damage to nerves or tissues still get certain diseases (blindness, paralysis, amnesia, … etc.). The treatment of these types of diseases was then (and remains today) determined by the goal of enabling the soldier to return to combat. No one has truly dealt with the phenomenon of how war disrupts the human psyche and the permanence of these changes that occur in war and the possible treatment of war traumas. So even today there is no complete overview of the visible and invisible consequences that war leaves on people. The influence of war and war actions on other family members (except soldiers) and especially the families of fallen soldiers is still the subject of research. It has not yet been investigated in detail whether and to what extent certain diseases caused by war (such as heart disease) are common.
Yet the traumas of war today have a different structure than those of the 20th century involving more people and different manifestations. For example, drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) that constantly fly through the air and monitor an area cause constant existential fear and insecurity among the population. However, drones are more used and more technically advanced, and can be equally adapted to highly specialized spy missions and combat operations related to remote bombing.
Research by psychologists says that in generating war trauma, the greatest stress is caused by events that make human life meaningless, and not necessarily by events that are the most risky or painful. For example, medical personnel who perform humanitarian work in the field of war to help others (even though they are constantly exposed to life-threatening weapons) have a lower degree of trauma than those who have participated in or suffered violence. It turns out that there is more war stress for a person who is in a situation to kill another person than for that person to be killed. The smaller the distance between a potential target and the person who kills, the greater the risk of war trauma. In the classic and conventional spectrum of weapons, the lowest risk of war trauma is when using multi-barrel rocket launchers. The greatest risk of war trauma is at the distance of direct contact or hand-to-hand combat. At the collective level, people usually unknowingly suppress the diversity and inhumanity of war by attributing it only to the opposite side, even though war trauma is suffered by all parties to the war. War trauma is a product of the general inhumane context in which war takes place.
One of the devastating facts in the process of political globalization of the modern world is that human life is not equally valuable everywhere on planet Earth. The general political commitment of the developed world is related to democracy and the rights of the individual. However, human life does not have the same value. This also applies to media attention in which some victims of terrorism will appear in prime time and on the front pages of the media while many nameless victims of interventions in other parts of the world will remain innumerable and invisible.
The history of warfare teaches us that it is important to have educated people from that segment of life who know which people and under what conditions have the right to organize mobilization and which is the obligation of military personnel towards the state. “Volunteer” written in military IDs, although these people did not voluntarily go to the battlefield or withdraw the army from the battlefields back and forth in meaningless political agreements in which there is no clear goal or clear line of command. Because, memories of war horrors and misfortunes are severe traumas that oppress and remain remembered forever.
