Conflicts rather than outright wars are the norm today. Often a lot of violence is involved in these conflicts. It involves civilians (and not the armed forces) and arise from within the cities.
Structures that promote division of city population promote conflicts and violence.

The arch-way was constructed to provide a shaded path to the royals. Some 100 years ago, the revolution forced the royals to flee.
Today the rich live near the old palace while the poor occupy the other end of the city and they still serve the old and the neo-rich; and it breeds dissatisfaction & conflict. The divisive arch-way is crumbling but may last for another century. A man-in-green continues to plant ficus-seeds in the crevices.
He hopes that the seeds take roots and brings the arch-gate down. It may unify the citizens.
