CSS 2015 Precis Passage Solved
Make precis of the following text and suggest a suitable title (CSS - 2015)
In studying the breakdowns of civilizations,the writer has subscribed to the conclusion - no new discovery! - that war has proved to have been the proximate cause of the breakdown of every civilization which is known for certain to have broken down, in so far as it has been possible to analyse the nature of these breakdowns and to account for their occurrence. Like other evils war has no insidious way of appearing not intolerable until it has secured such a stronghold upon the lives of its addicts that they no longer have the power to escape from its grip when its deadlines have become manifest. In the early stages of civilization's growth,the cost of wars in suffering and destruction might seem to be exceeded by the benefits occurring from the wining of wealth and power and the cultivation of the "military virtues"; and,in this phase of history, states have often found themselves able to indulge in war with one another with something like impunity even for the defeated party. War does not begin to reveal its malignity till the war making society has begun to increase its economic ability to exploit physical nature and its political ability to organize manpower; but,as soon as this happens,the god of war to which the growing society has long since been dedicated proves himself a Moloch by devouring an ever larger share of the increasing fruits of man's industry and intelligence in the process of taking an ever larger toll of life and happiness;and,when the society's growth in efficiency reaches a point at which it becomes capable of mobilizing a lethal quantum of its energies and resources for military use then war reveals itself as being a cancer which is bound to prove fatal to its victim unless he can cut it out and cast it from him, since its malignant tissues have now  learnt to grow faster than the healthy tissues on which they feed. In the past when this danger­ point in the history of the relations between war and civilization has been reached and recognized, serious efforts have sometimes been made to get rid of war in time to save society, and these endeavors have been apt to take one or other of two alternative directions. Salvation cannot, of course, be sought anywhere except in the working of the consciences of individual human beings; but individuals have a choice between trying to achieve their aims through direct action as private citizens and trying to achieve them through indirect action as citizen of states. Personal refusal to lend himself in any way to any war waged-by his state for any purpose and in any circumstances is a line of attack against the institution of war that is likely to appeal to an ardent and self-sacrificing nature; by comparison, the alternative peace strategy of seeking to persuade and accustom movements to combine in jointly resisting aggression when it comes and in trying to remove its stimuli beforehand may seem a circuitous and unheroic line of attack on the problem. Yet experience up to date indicates unmistakably, in the present writer's opinion, that the second of these two hard roads is by far the more promising.


Title: Peace Strategy for Abolition of Wars
The writer finds that war is the cause of collapse of every civilization. Like other evils, the deadly grip of war is difficult to escape. In the early age of civilization, the nations indulged in war with the illusion of impunity though their losses were far greater than their gains like getting wealth,power and military virtues. War appears benevolent to the war makers for the economic benefits and political power but in the long run, it proves cancerous with a greater death toll and diverts energies and resources for mobilizing the war agents. Then it seems the malignant tissues of war grows faster than the healthy tissues. In the past after realizing the dangerous conflict of war and civilization, the individuals made efforts to save societies from war. Though the human individual consciousness is significant but being the citizens of a state, the individual refusal is not enough to get rid of war. The writer believes that the attempts to persuade the governments for not indulging in war seem more promising in this regard .
