cultural: patterns and processes
1)what groups are involved, who had the power?
the groups that were involved was the army and wealthy, guerilla squad, Guatemalan government, peasants and workers, and the united states. at the beginning army and wealthy had the power.
2) how did the balance of power shift and why?
the balance of power shifted mainly between the guerillas and the army and wealthy. when one groups would chose to launch an attack on another, the power would shift to what group won the attack . when an attack is launched both groups could lose or gain MSUs depending on how the attack was executed.
3) how was cooperation and conflict shown in the game(violence/corruption/war/)
all the groups cooperated after the guerillas launched several attacks on the army and wealthy. army and wealthy didn't launch a counter attack they offered a treaty and the guerillas signed it.
4) what role did the US have on this simulation?
the US just watched over the whole process and when they didn't like how something was going they would offer a treaty and it was up to the president to sign the treaty.
5) what happened to a country when power shifts, is the effect positive or negative?
the shift of power didn't really effect any of the groups because in the end the army and wealthy had 160 MSUs and the guerillas had 130 and still won.
6) apply this information to your life. what relationships do you have in your life, how are cooperation and conflict evident?
for this question im going to do one good example. in every relationship you have in your life your gonna have to do something you're not so comfortable with so matters don't get worse. that's cooperation. its fair if both party's have to make sacrifices to stop conflict but that's no always the case. and when both parties don't cooperate then you have conflict and buy the end of the conflict the power will change for the good or bad.
