This exam consists of 10 Short Answer questions, worth 10 points each. Read each question very carefully and type your response directly into the text box below the question. Your response should not exceed one full paragraph of text but must completely answer all parts of the question. At no time should you include quotes in your response. Only provide original responses in your own words. Citations of course materials are neither required nor expected, although you are welcome to refer to course materials in order to complete this test successfully. For clarity’s sake, please observe the following meanings of terms: “Describe”: When you are asked to describe something, please explain enough key characteristics of that ‘something’ as it relates to our course materials to demonstrate that you know what you are talking about. “In your opinion”: When you are asked for your opinion, please state just enough facts about the topic to demonstrate you recognize the topic from your work in the course, such as a definition of terms from our course materials in your own words. THEN, go on to explain your perspective as it relates to that topic. These questions call for well-considered opinions, but not analysis. “Discuss”: When you are asked to discuss something, please explain the key characteristics of that something to demonstrate that you know what you are talking about. THEN, provide a brief analysis of those characteristics through a relevant lens of our course materials. These questions call for well-informed analysis, but not opinions. If you are not explicitly asked to respond ‘in your opinion’, to ‘describe’, or to ‘discuss’, then simply answer the questions according to information presented in the course materials. Only do so, however, in your own words. 1. In your opinion, under what circumstances is political violence malum prohibitum violence? Political violence malum prohibitum is violence conducted in such a manner that is not specifically considered to be evil or morally unconscionable as it encompasses violent acts that are a result of disagreements of prohibited behaviors that are deemed to be socially unacceptable, therefore made illegal by the fortitude of legislation. There are many situations/circumstances that would result in violence as a way of expressing political disparities; for example, the prohibition of alcohol might result in the upheaval of initially law abiding citizens as their freedoms and civil liberties are legislatively withdrawn, furthermore resulting in violence.

    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.

    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.
