Yes, in the Adamic Cycle (6,000 years ago)
No, in the Baha’i Cycle (1863 and now on…)
In the past, people were uncivilized and we had
no ways of solving problems globally.
Today, human beings have reach a global level
of maturity to solve world problems. With a little
more modification, the UN will be able to
establish and maintain peace on our planet.
See how good for the world, when we use the
expenses of defence for education, and work
collectively in the spirit of service to all mankind.
Self-defense will become obsolete and we can turn
our little planet into paradise for all people.

“Now vengeance, according to reason, is also blameworthy, because through vengeance no good result is gained by the avenger. So if a man strikes another, and he who is struck takes revenge by returning the blow, what advantage will he gain? Will this be a balm for his wound or a remedy for his pain? No, God forbid! In truth the two actions are the same: both are injuries; the only difference is that one occurred first, and the other afterward. Therefore, if he who is struck forgives, nay, if he acts in a manner contrary to that which has been used toward him, this is laudable. The law of the community will punish the aggressor but will not take revenge.” (Abdu’l-Baha, Some Answered Questions, p. 267)
