This paper will present the concepts within the broad understanding of peace and conflict studies and critical security studies scholarships and attach several different reflections on the international relations framework focusing on war and peace modalities within a discourse of democracy, hegemonism, global deprivation, and inequalities. It is evident how lessons from the past manifest themselves in situations from the present, which is very reminiscent of what we can call the "Second Cold war." We quickly come to the rationality that today, as never before, a strategy of violence to develop and maintain hegemonic goal has been adopted, which rises to unquestionable status; a culture of fear becomes a tool for achieving hegemonism political goals. Combined with global deprivation and predatory capitalism that debilitated the welfare state's idea, nationalism and hegemonism encourage transnational negative behavior patterns. This paper argue that by redefining the relationship between the components of the liberal order - sovereignty, institutions, participation, rules, and responsibilities - it is possible to begin a new basis of international global politics.
