Will the world become more peaceful in the future?

The United States took steps to restore full diplomacy with Cuba last December. This is a historical and great change in the world. Although it seems that the world is progressing toward peace, pending issues and latent problems will surely stand in the way of the progress.
It is undeniable that the world population has experienced continuous growth since the end of the Great Famine and the Black Death in 1350. This causes life's necessity: water, food, energy. Because of this, an increasing number of food riots will occur in some emerging countries.
Moreover, exponential growth in population in multicultural society leads to conflict. Terrorism and war also results from fuel and food scarcity. Aggressors pillage lands and resources from residents and force them out. They always wreck agricultural land and this worsens the situations.
From yet another point of view, wars causes even child exploitation.There are over 200 million children around the world who don't have an access to education and are in danger of injury or disease because of hazardous labour. Child abuse deteriorates poverty.
As mentioned above, it seems highly unlikely to me that we will fulfill the world peace. The pending issues - drastic population growth and the latent problems: dictatorship and forced labor for kids have to be solved.With the situation the way it is, it is far-fetched to see complete peace in the foreseeable future.
