- 1- What groups are involved, who had the power?
- 2- How the balance of power shifted and why?
- 3- How was cooperation and conflict shown in the game (violence/corruption/war)?
- 4- What role did the US have on the simulation?
- 5- What happens to a country when power shifts, is the effect positive or negative?
- 6- Apply this information to YOUR LIFE! What relationships do you have in your life, how are cooperation and conflict evident? Provide a minimum of 2 examples.
1. The groups that were involved in this game include the following, the army and wealthy, guerillas, government, the peasants and the united states. When the game first began my group ( the army and wealthy) started with the most Military units which means we had the most power.
2. The power shifted to the guerillas because they formed an alliance with the United states and they eventually got ahold of the most MSU's.
3. Cooperation was shown when each of the groups were trying to form alliances in the common goal of gaining the most military units and winning the election. Conflict was shown when groups were attacking and betraying each other for that same goal.
4. The United States played a very big role in this game. They kind of sat back and watched the whole thing happen knowing no matter what the outcome was they could takeover at any time because they were the most powerful nation in the world.
5. It all depends on who the power shifts to and where it shifts from. If the power was in good hands and it switched to not so good hands then it will obviously have a negative effect on the country. If someone is abusing there power then it calls for them to be overthrown for someone better to take over the country.
6. Cooperation and conflict are in my life everyday. Whether its with a family member or a friend its always there. These things are evident because there an every day part of life and you will see them everywhere you go. An example of this is a student and teacher conflict, I have had many teachers be on my back about things and it creates tension between the student and teacher. An example of cooperation is When a teacher stays after school to do late or makeup work and the teacher helps out. There cooperating towards a common goal.
