For the last paragraph of are essay it's war as a social disease vs. non-conformity. Do you think that I would be better off doing war as a social disease vs. Addiction What would some possible solutions be for eliminating addiction as a social disease? Or should I stick to war as a social disease vs. non-conformity
Where did addiction come from?
Yes, definitely stick with war as a social disease.
We for sure have to do war as a social disease vs. something And that something has to be some type of problem or dilemma. I don't what would be the best to use. Whatever we choose we then have to find a solution for it in the end
Contrasting war as a social disease and non-conformity is certainly a viable discussion.
Opposition to both the Vietnam War and the current war in Iraq depended from non-conformists who gradually became stronger and convinced more people to be "cured" of the social disease of war. By encouraging non-conformity in our children and teens, we may have a good start Perhaps we're learning to prevent war as a social disease.
That's what I will stick to then thanks. Maybe you can help clear my confusion. My topic will be war as a social disease vs. non-conformity. By process of elimination we have to eliminate everything that does not alter the original conflict and give reasons why not) Until we discover the one thing that alters the original conflict. Then that has to be the problem of the conflict. Then we have to give detailed solution/solution. I don't get what this means
This is what i have so far. War as a social disease versus non-conformity is a dilemma that needs to be solved. Individuals refuse to hold closely to a state of religion.
How does that idea not alter the original conflict (that's if i'm doing it right) I have to give reasons. I'm stuck
I think you've isolated fear as the root cause of war by showing that other possible motives are not the main or root causes. If people conquer their fears or find other ways than war to react to fear, then war is eliminated as a social disease.
One antidote is nonconformity. Nonconformists think for themselves and don't follow the crowd. They don't get caught up in the fear that so often precipitates war. They prefer negotiations and helping build the world, not destroy it. Nonconformism doesn't only apply to religion -- but to the whole gamut of behaviors and ideas. Here's a quote that may help you understand nonconformism.
"If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you; If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; . . . If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same . . . Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it."
-- (Joseph) Rudyard Kipling
