      I find it interesting that your third big idea says to do what one thinks is right yet your second essential question asks how peace treaties can lead to future conflicts. Seeing as I can only assume that there are those who make both war and peace while doing what they think is right for either themselves, their nation, or the world itself. I think it's possible to do the wrong thing or make bad choices by doing either of the options given in the third big idea. Thoughts?
