Christina Zinkel Part I A bystander is an individual or group whom engage in violence indirectly either by doing nothing to prevent the acts being done or aiding the individuals engaging in the violence. An example of this would be the German people during World War II who helped the Nazi regime in its movement against the Jewish people and those who knew about what was being done but did nothing to stop it. Being a bystander may be considered a form of violence because it is indirectly harming others. Poverty is the inability to obtain the necessities to sustain life sufficiently. Poverty is also circumstantial because different nations have different resources for their citizens and cannot meet needs in different ways. An example of this is the children in Sudan who are faced with war and cannot find food within their country because they are at higher risk for death if they search for some. Violence often occurs as a result of not meeting the basic needs associate with poverty because of circumstance. Natural necessity is the feeling of an individual that their needs must be met before those of others. An example of this would be when an individual discloses information about another in order to make sure that their needs of less pain are met. When it comes to the violent act of torture natural necessity is vital to the results of this action. Part II
