One of the top ideas for an issue to discuss deals with war. Particularly in respect to the effect war has had on the development of society in the past, how it effects us today, and how it may effect the future. A question to ask to help with this issue may be, how has our current society been effected by the wars of the last 50 years? With this train of thought I would want to focus a lot on how the people have been effected from war and how those people inherently effect the war itself.
Another issue that I might like to discuss is how tactics in war have changed. This may just be a spin off of the previous topic but this focus would look more on the evolution of military tactics. Starting from as far back as Egyptian tactics all the way to today's war tactics. Part of this would include reason why men continue to become soldiers and how it has changed from a class standing to a professional occupation. Obviously both are pretty linear in regards to war but it is something I feel strongly about and can discuss in depth.
