Unfortunately for Huntington, it seems that as times have changed so has the the world and all of the technologies, mechanics and necessities the world now functions upon. Cultures now get along much better than they did in the past since they are easier to communicate easier than they ever have before. If one wishes to communicate with a member of another culture, they can easily do so by logging on to Facebook or picking up their telephone. Travel has also given people the opportunity not only the opportunity to bring many different cultures together, but to visit different nations and experience different cultures for themselves. Globally, cultural acceptance have reached levels that Huntington and his colleagues would have never been able to predict. However, it is not not to be said that conflict itself has been completed eliminated, specifically in the form of economics. Much of the conflict the world is still engaged in, specifically within the middle east where there are large oil deposits that civilizations all around

the world wish to receive their oil from. Contradictory, Religion has also played a significant role in the conflict in the middle east, where Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims both continue to fight for control of the government and where conflict shows absolutely no intent in ending. Consequentially, I believe that it is safe to say Samuel L. Huntington was incorrect in his prediction that he made in The Clash of Civilizations mainly because the world has become much more culturally accepting and a large amount of the conflict that does exist come from economical sources. Huntington’s prediction holds a large amount of reason, but because he was unable to predict the advancements that society would undertake, his theory is just not applicable to the civilizations of modern time.

    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.
