Power: The Structure of Conflict Chapter 4 of Wilmot and Hocker’s Interpersonal Conflict examines the role of power in conflict by addressing common perceptions about it, how it develops, and ultimately how to balance and use it constructively to solve problems. In regards to how we generally see power, it is something that we require to influence the way we lead our lives. We need power to speak for ourselves, to control what influences us, and also to protect ourselves from perceived harm. Differing views of power are both negative and positive, and are subject to the difference in one’s orientation towards it from another’s. Power is a fundamental concept in conflict theory that attributes three perceptions of power.
War itself has a very specific definition, which it is useful to mention here because we have to know what war is before we can determine whether or not it is just. War must be understood as "an actual, intentional and widespread armed conflict between political communities" (Orend, 2005).

But just as frequent is war within a state between rival groups or communities, like the American Civil War" (Orend, 2005).

Analysis The book says it best, rankism, “Once you have a name for it, you see it everywhere” (Fuller, p. 3).

Relationships are key to conflict management and are the driving force behind conflict in all situations. Conflict Coser states that conflict is, “A struggle over values and claims to scarce status, power, and resources in which the aims of the opponents are to neutralize, injure, or eliminate the rivals” (Coser, L. A. 1967). Deutsch believes that, “Conflict exists whenever incompatible activities occur .
That is the country I see. That is the country you see. But now it is up to us to help the entire nation embrace this vision. Because in the end, we're not just against the ingrained and destructive habits of Washington, we're also struggling with our own doubts, our own fears, our own cynicism. The change we seek has always required great struggle and great sacrifice.
3) How might it affect the offending person or institution? This situation could affect Cher in many ways however I feel it would have the biggest effect on her reputation.

Ethnic conflict is still very much in the news today. Why do conflicts occur among countries? Like our text tells us on page 14 from the conflict perspective, “In the conflict view, groups exert what power they possess over others when it serves their interests, and society consists of a wide array of interest groups struggling to acquire a share of societal resources.” (Sullivan. 2007, pg. 14).
