The problem of Being as a concept is one that has pervaded every facet of human endeavour from the family to the society, to countries. This problem has also eaten deep into the fabrics of different systems instituted by man to make his living better. Rather than collaborate to bring about the best for man, these systems antagonize each other thereby making life more difficult. This paper argues the position that the primary and root cause of crisis, conflicts and regression in human societies is the problem of Being exemplified in the misrepresentations of Being whereby rather than see the differences of beings as aspects or profiles of Being which need collaboration to get a whole that would be beneficial these beings see themselves as individual wholes’ willing to subsume the other. We further argue that the solution to this situation is to go back to the basis and resolve the problem of being through the accommodation of non–being by being which would lead to an amicable management and easy resolution of conflicts and contest within systems and people and between systems and people. This is essentially so because conflict is believed to be ontological in man but it can be minimized. More so, conflict is sometimes essential for change but it should not be allowed to degenerate into a thing of destruction.

Keywords: Being, None-being, Conflict Resolution
