300 word discussion post


In discussing the concept of violence this week, let’s take a moment to consider the following situation.

The government refuses, claiming that the territory in question, which commands the nation’s only source of clean water, is vital to security. Is violence inevitable? This discussion question focuses on ethnic violence.

Along with your textbook reading for the week, here’s some additional reading to consider about ethnic violence:
