I want to gain real understanding of conflict theory because I think it's ridiculously interesting how human needs and ego are so interconnected to conflict. As I follow current events I'm curious as to why actions of the United States are deemed good ideas for other countries. Also how does America's relations with rest of world impact our involvement?
Lastly I hope to gain a little insight into how to analyze world conflict. As the years go by, I may forget some details, but hopefully having skill to critically evaluate conflict will remain with me. Above all, my general goal in life is to remain teachable and I extend that goal to this class.
