Conflict can be dealt with quickly, slowly, or not at all (some conflicts can be indefinite and ongoing) In instances where national communities are so internally divided and no enduring settlement can be achieved, the result is often a stalemate, civil war, or dictatorship Governments exist to facilitate deliberation, cooperation, and consensus Deliberate in the hope of moving towards cooperation and eventually consensus Government also exists to defuse and moderate conflict in its borders Inherently negative assumption about human nature that we are prone to conflict and put our self-interests above all Life in humanity’s natural state is “nasty, brutish, and short” - Thomas Hobbes Conflicts are political to the extent that governments are somehow involved National communities deal with conflicts authoritatively by means of a government Governments are the instrument used by national communities to address instances of conflict within their society

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
