However, personal experience is also a factor which impacts on every conflict, and from what the person has experienced from their own past, it can change the way that person views the other. Prejudice is a major issue which plays a huge role in the conflict of Twelve Angry Men, where Rose has this factor impacting on the play as a whole. The conflict in twelve Angry Men is one which explores the limits of racism, “one of them”, and displays many prejudice acts that meet the measures of life in 1950s America. Rose had the involvement of the jury, and the case its self, as an illustration of prejudiced actions and forms of personal behaviours
Racism, an institutional ideology In 2006, the movie Crash presented many challenging portrayals of racial and ethnic issues. Crash is set in Los Angeles and portrays the ways in which people often show evidence of racist behavior, even while shielding themselves from the same kind of conduct, during confrontation. They do so when apprehensive and insecure: when discouraged with tribulations beyond their control, when threatened with a loss of self-esteem, and when frightened that racial others may extricate them from their place in the social structure. Racist behavior is an easy response because racial categories were fabricated to present superior and inferior status. Race is an influential idea and a continuing concept, made-up by society.
Nowra suggests that society’s stigmatised views and ideas about individuals with psychiatric disorders are false as he brings forth the notion that Nick and Lucy, and more prominently Lewis, are in absolute confusion about their identities, in comparison to the patients. Similarly, the environment outside of the asylum is frantic as the Vietnam War is taking place, however, when comparing the wars between the patients of the asylum to those outside, it is clear which environment contains more madness; the outside world. Initially, Nowra introduces each of the characters and seemingly their mental disorders; indicating that they are, in essence a representation of the definition of ‘mad’. Lewis bears witness to their insanity as they are “junkie[s]”, “pyromania[cs]” and have problems differentiating “illusion” from “reality”. Displaying the supposed roots of their “madness”, whilst presenting the idea that society only sees these individuals as labels, rather than beings a part of humanity.
Now, when it comes to conformity people “end up doing all kinds of stupid things (or smart things!) simply because their friends are doing them” Wade, C., Tavris, C., & Garry, M. (2014) (p. 273). These stupid things can easily include preforming acts of violence because people want to feel part of the group. On the matter of groupthink; this happens when a group requires total agreement and results in the group thinking that they are completely right and there is no fault in any of their actions, even when their actions include unspeakable acts of violence. People can also commit evil deeds when they lose their sense of individuality from being in large groups or crowds.
Although juries are intended to be fair and balanced, and are in theory supposed to prevent biased, incompetent people having that kind power. However often enough it's the opposite that happens. In criminal cases where the defendant's punishment could be serving time in prison or could even be death, there is a great deal of pressure on jurors to ultimately make the right decision. This kind of pressure combined with the fear of possible guilt can be overwhelming for jurors, making them incapable of doing their job properly. For example, imagine that you’re in a jury room, and all of the other jurors have voted on the defendant being guilty and you are the one to decide whether or not this person gets the death sentence or if they walk free.

The victim begins sobbing uncontrollably and yells out “justice has been served,” and the defendant is angry screaming profanities.
In "Fashionable Anti-Amercanism," Dominic Hilton considers the villainous identity America has taken on by foreign countries. He discusses whether these countries are legitimately angry, or if they have a Freudian complex involving the fear to look look at themselves cynically and discontinue the blame towards America. There is strong focus on anti-Americanism being seen as fashionable and uneducated. Hilton questions whether it would matter what America did, because the discrimination would most likely continue. He uses examples, and quotes to demonstrate the irony of foreigners lack of condolence towards America.
The Treaty of Versailles would prove to be one of the most disastrous mistakes in history. To even label it a peace treaty is a lie.

The treaty was the worst mistake the Western democracies made, and Germany was to pay for those mistakes. The Treaty of Versailles left the Germans feeling guilty, humiliated, and resentful.
Social justice is a topic known all to well in today's society. Such issues as social heirarchial structure and unjust representatives of citizens of nations are issues in need of attention by those in power. Corruption, lies and greed by those in power however stand in the way of this form of justice from occurring, leaving many with little or no social status open to prejudice on race, religious and sexual grounds.
