Unit 5 Assignment 1: Intercultural Conflict Analysis What I believe the sources of conflict are poor communication, differing values, differing interests, scarce resources, personality clashes, and poor performance. These can ultimately lead to a lot of things depending on the setting. In a work environment, it can lead to someone losing their job. Between individuals, it can lead to a fight or loss of a relationship. If nations are involved, it can lead to imminent war.
The face of Criminal Justice and its laws has forever been changed, largely in part due to the KKK. Had Congress and Politicians been able to foresee what effect the KKK would have on the US and set in place measures to stop them before they became powerful, would the hate crimes and hate groups of today be as prominent? There will always be hatred in the world. There will always be people, groups, and organizations that do not agree or accept certain lifestyles, religions, races, and ethnicity. Perhaps though, had the KKK and those that
Plus, one of his supporters called them ‘a council of drunkards’ which put him in jail. The political opposition that they faced was a more important reason for Calvin’s expulsion in 1538. As in 1538 four new syndics were elected. Though these men were in favour of reform, they didn’t necessarily want Calvin’s model. The new syndics were pro-Berne which meant that they wanted to practice the same religion as the one in Berne.
The colonization and “the arrival of the missionaries had caused a considerable stir in the village of Mbanta” because they began to alter the traditions of the tribe (Achebe 138). This traditional change has a personal effect on various characters. Okonkwo resists the new religious and political differences because he feels that they are not manly. He also feels that he will not be manly if he chooses to tolerate them. Okonkwo’s intolerance to the cultural change is also due to his fear of losing his social status.
The Role of Adversity In everyday life we are faced with hardships in which we have to overcome. When we overcome these hardships, our perception of life is altered and in turn we often change our own identity. One event of mass adversity and one’s path in life can be altered and their identity can change forever. For instance, after the fall of the twin towers, people’s lives around the world shifted and their identities forever changed. Everyone became more cautious and many had lost the trust of foreign societies, even society itself.
The Crusades Throughout time, there have been many events that have changed our lives but the Crusades or “holy wars” have had the most effects on us, and have helped change the world to what it is today. There have been many causes for the Crusades. I know that one of the causes for it was that; the Kings and the Church saw it as an opportunity to get rid of quarrelsome knights, because these knights threatened the peace of the kingdom, as well as the Churches property. Another cause for it was that nobles and knights saw it as an opportunity or way of obtaining more land and a position in society. They also wanted to regain control of their “holy land.”Another cause was that Italian city-states of Pisa, Genoa, and Venice hoped to win control of key trade routes to India, Southeast Asia, and China
Each group had its own ideas on what was needed for Russia and each group wanted change, however, there were many problems within the groups and none of them were willing to work with each other; mostly due to the differences in their policies and how they carried them out. The Social Revolutionaries, who were mainly concentrated on establishing a democratic government, used violent tactics such as terrorism and assassinations, the most famous being the assassination of Tsar Alexander II. However, the Liberals, who also wanted to establish some sort of democracy did not agree on using violent tactics, they preferred to discuss things in meetings and banqueting campaigns. The Liberals were the most moderate of the opposition groups and wanted to keep the Tsar, but remove autocracy and have his current power shared between a democratic government. The Social Democrats, like the other two groups, also wanted to establish some sort of democracy; however, once again, they did not agree on using violence, they preferred to use propaganda campaigns, as did the Social Revolutionaries and Liberals, but not violence.
Some of the major negative economic effects of natural gas drilling are the enormous amounts of pollutants released into our water sources. With estimates coming close to 50 trillion cubic feet of natural gas sitting in the Marcellus, it’s no wonder companies are willing to drill at any cost to the local water systems and communities. In other words, there is conservatively two trillion dollars in nature gas reserves sitting right under us. The problem with fracking is being able to find an economical and environmentally friendly way to dispose of the waste water. There are approximately thirteen treatment plants used to deal with the waste water that is accumulated by the massive fracking operations all over the state.
Jindabyne Thesis Statements The difference in cultural beliefs and lifestyles segregates and creates a racial conflict between the indigenous and white Australians, intensifying the situation. Fear of aging and death can create inner conflict, causing one to act in unpredictable ways. Fear of loneliness and lack of power and control in later life can cause an irrational desperation in a relationship and create an interpersonal conflict. Unresolved events from the past can continue to cause conflict in the present. Sometimes interpersonal conflict can be resolved and bring people together.
Identity impacts the decisions you make, defines who you are and changes as you mature. Friar Laurence made a variety of important and strong willed decisions. The protestors in "Forbidden City” sacrificed their lives for change and equal rights. Andy from “On the Sidewalk Bleeding” made an important realization about his identity. Friar Laurence would never be the same after the unfortunate events he experienced.
