  • Political Violence - 1,552 words
    Political Violence Political violence is like a festering wound, in that, without the aid of antibiotics the wound has the potential to depress the immune system and eventually overwhelm the individual, leading to death. In this analogy, antibiotics could represent forces that are always looking for the rogue virus's bent on the destruction of the whole body (society). I often wonder why people resort to violence, of any kind, to solve a particular problem. Questions can be asked of the individual(s) involved in carrying out the attacks, but the questions never seem to be answered in a way that will show why violence is needed to resolve conflict. Rather, excuses are rendered in the hopes th ...

  • Hulliung And Machiavelli - 1,150 words
    Hulliung And Machiavelli Is Hulliung right? Hulliung discusses how people understand Machiavelli and what he thinks of some of Machiavellis concepts. In the chapter of "interpreting Machiavelli", Hulliung argues in the issues of means and ends, idealism Vs realism, political violence and weather Machiavelli is a pagan. His ideas somewhat seem to be convincing. However, the question is, is Hulliung fair in judging Machiavelli? Or is he immoral? Hulliung thinks that there are no differences between ends and means. In other words if the means are violent, in his view, the ends will be violent as well. What Hulliung says is that nothing can justify a means except the end that it is intended to s ...

  • Violent Forms In Sociopolitical Spheres: Understanding State Mass Killings In Indonesia 196566 - 1,766 words
    ... s interact creating violence with imploding rather than exploding forces. While these processes are present in episodes of state-mass killings, such events must be understood separately. Participants in state organized mass violence are mobilized to varying degrees by terror. In-group processes are certainly important. Yet, the lack of information and the impossibility of observation create problems for analysis. In-group processes occur within and are affected by local and national contexts.

While perceived threats may unite actors, perceived opportunities to reduce threats will ...
