One cannot celebrate Christmas one day a year, and make a mockery of it the other 364 days... People are being exploited, people are being killed and maimed, people are deprived of food and of medecines, and we do what? We celebrate Christmas for 24 hours?... Does that make us feel good? Perhaps it shouldn't...

Absolutely, and that's why I never stop calling for Peace On Earth though non-interventionism, and Goodwill To Men through the voluntary interactions of the marketplace.

That sounds naive. Non-intervention in Europe during WWII would have led to victory by Nazi Germany. Non-intervention in Korea would have resulted in South Korea under them thumb of the Kim dynasty. Non-intervention in Vietnam might have resulted in SE Asia under Communist rule (according to LKY).

Non-intervention does not lead to peace.

Non-intervention in Europe during the first world war would have prevented everything you just listed.

Non-intervention in Europe in WWI would have resulted in an Europe dominated by the Kaiser. The Russians were defeated and German troops were shifted to the western front. France and the British, the two major democracies in Europe would have been defeated. I am not sure if that is better.
