    No to all

    Clue 2: In religion and politics people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second-hand, and without examination, from authorities who have not themselves examined the questions at issue but have taken them at second-hand from other non-examiners, whose opinions about them were not worth a brass farthing.- Mark Twain

    Your first clue seems to reference the Billy Joel song "We didn't start the Fire" but I can't connect it to civ.

    Still no, but some are getting close

    I form many worlds within one, and cause conflicts that aren't conflicts between the worlds

    The correct answer was Ideology as a whole, so I'll leave it up to otaman as to whether to accept Ideological pressure or not (maybe a cookie?)

    Clue 1 as many guessed referred to the Billy Joel song We didn't start the fire, which had lyrics referencing many events inspired by Ideologies (Red China as the first).

    Clue 2 talked about the beliefs of people in politics, which is essentially what an Ideology is

    Clue 3 is how the world was divided into three worlds based on affiliation to the allegiance of countries to either of the ideological superpowers - First World for American allies, Second for the Soviet allies and Third for neutral countries. And then the 'conflict that isn't a conflict' is the Cold 'War', which despite being called a war never had any open fighting between the two powers

    Depends on you. You gave the clue, so it's your choice.
