Throughout the history it has always been substantiated that pandering to the whims and notions of an autocrat or a dictator is destructive and brings war, misery , loss and only loss to the common populace. Chamberlain realised this to his utter dismay when his attempts to appease Hitler went to the dogs and Germany declared the invasion of Poland . All those bilateral meetings between the british pm and the german chancellor and the understandings reached between them therein were rendered defunct. Europe was yet to be fully recovered from the devastation the first world war had brought about when another such calamity looked imminent with Hitler's promulgation of war on Poland. The catastrophe that followed is well documented and popularly known as the second world war. The lessons conveyed by the second world war helped a great deal in establishing a new world order. The emergence of mutual trust among different states , the bonhomie , the opening of borders , the formation of Unions for the collective good were all unprecedented in themselves. The world wars have always served as a stark reminder to the states across the world that parochial nationalism, unchecked ambitions , intolerance to differences , disharmony among citizens , segregation based on races etc are a bigger threat to the existence of humans than anything else.
