Television broadcasts 24 hours a day and the stations are very competitive with each other. Many stories are told, retold, hashed, and rehashed so much that many viewers spend hours watching one developing story. This is bound to create concern and even hysteria because of the inundation of words and pictures. Then, think of the responses to posts on such social media as Facebook.
It's not a matter of past events being "allowed" to control events today. People cannot be controlled, and there are those who remember slights and brutality pitted against ancestors.
Thanks ! could you please answer my other two questions as well ! :D
Which other two questions?
1.: Find out more about the conflict in the northern ireland today. write one account of the situation from an irish catholic point of view, and another protestant point of view
2.: how long should events that happened in the past be allowed to control events today. explain the reasons for your answer
Please answer it, and thank you :D
2. It's not a matter of past events being "allowed" to control events today. People cannot be controlled, and there are those who remember slights and brutality pitted against ancestors.
Thank you !! oh . i forgot, its another english protestant point of view. and am i suppose to write: The Troubles (Irish: Na Trioblóidí) was a period of ethno-political conflict in Northern Ireland which spilled over at various times into England, the Republic of Ireland, and mainland Europe. The duration of the Troubles is conventionally dated from the late 1960s and considered by many to have ended with the Belfast "Good Friday" Agreement of 1998. As of 2011, sporadic violence nonetheless continued.for the 1st part of the point of view for the irish catholic point of view. THANK YOU SO MUCH MS.SUE :D.
That's a bit of the background to the conflict. From what source did you copy this paragraph?
Now you need to write about it from the two different points of view.
I copied it from the Wikipedia: the troubles section and how am i suppose to write about it from the two different points of view ?:# my teacher didn't explain what it meant ......
Every conflict has two sides.
From the Irish Catholic point of view, the English invaded this island and tried to impose Protestantism on its people. One of my ancestors from England was awarded land in Ireland. Over much time and warfare, the Irish won back most of their country. However, Northern Ireland remains part of the United Kingdom and is mostly Protestant.
When I was in Ireland a year ago, we were shown walls in Dublin, Northern Ireland, that separates neighborhoods f Protestants and Catholics. Our guide didn't think this will ever be settled.
Thank youuu ! :D. oh one more thing how would i write . another one for the english protestant ? . because i have info about it, nor does my textbook has it . I'm so sorry to be asking so much questions, its just that i don't get what its asking for :P.
We're here to answer questions. :-)
The English Protestants have lived in Northern Ireland for generations. It's their land and of course they resent the Irish for wanting to annex it to Ireland. How would you feel if a neighboring state wanted to take over your state?
