Jeff Mylet Government and Law 236 Professor Fabian 2/26/2008 Macro vs. Micro The main thought of the macro-level of explanations in the individual level of analysis is that wars are due in part to the nature of mankind.

I am also sure that counter-arguments can be made against them, as well as arguments made saying that the macro-level is more convincing. But from what I’ve seen and read about, to me, the micro-level is more credible....
