Wk 6: War and Conflict (23-27th Feb)

This week we have been talking a lot about what makes each of us angry ( our triggers) and what happens to us when we get angry. You’ve also spent a lot of time researching one war/ conflict for your IMovie.

Your question this week is: What can people/ countries do in the future to avoid conflict? What can people do to make sure that wars do not continue to happen around the world? What solutions do you have?

    People should have more time to calm themselves down if they are angry at something/someone. But if the conflict already started, they should try to make an agreement pretty soon. Also they should, vote in each of the sides who wants conflict and who doesn’t. If it is between 2 people, they should share if it is over land
    (bigger backyard), or if it is something else I recommend solution number 1. Another solution if they are competing against natural resources, they should have a business or export the resources to the country who wants it. Between neighbors it might be a little easier to solve conflicts, because the problems are usually very small.

      I agree with you Aukusti neighbours conflicts are easier to solve than other conflicts. And why don’t they share their backyard and their grass. I wish people did not have conflict. Some conflict are easier to solve.

    People should be more calm than angry in a fight. They should not get mad at the other person. But if the conflict is already started they should try make an agreement. if it’s about their backyard or grass they can just do it a calm way. But anyways why don’t they share their backyard or their grass. A neighbour conflict is easier to solve than a business conflict.

      Love, l agree with you. But l think everybody can solve problems on their own, and they don’t need to fight at all. And l don’t agree with you on the point of a neighbour conflict is easier to solve than a business conflict. Because every conflict is the same, but they can make different endings. For example, both WW2 and Vietnam War are Wars, but WW2 is bigger than Vietnam War.

    l get angry because my dad, mom or my sister shout at me for NO REASON! When l get mad, l usually came down first. So l sit by myself in my room. If l still can not come down, l will go and play soccer(sports). Sports can make me feel better. Or l can tell my family members, teachers or my friends about it.

      I agree with you Jonathan that sports or something that you like to do can calm your self down/. Sometimes when I get angry I punch our punching bag. When I punch our punching bag it feels like I am kicking someone else an that makes me calm down. I disagree with one thing, that is when I sometimes get angry I also go into my room but it does not help me to calm down.

    Same as me Jonathan, my parents too sometimes yell at small things forever, like having ” too little clothes on” or about that I have too little homework. As conflict happens all the time, most of it is just arguing kid/parent or just like a little disagreement. People often try to calm themselves down by doing something they like for ex: playing games.
    War is a serious level of disagreement or jealousy but it can also be like a stick war between kids

    People could try to solve the conflict more calmly without a huge fight.So,if you had a small fight with your friend and you are mad at him/her , you might want to solve it by talking and not physically because it could start an even bigger fight.
    Also,if 2 countries are about to start a fight, both countries can think back again and think if it is really that important for the countries to go to war.If not, the countries will not have a war and there would be less countries in war for a bad reason.Next, the 2 counties can try to calm down.If the conflict is not so important,they could solve it by calming down.
    Conflicts with your family and your friends happen a lot ,but they are almost always small,so you can solve it easier, faster and safer .

    People should try to solve conflicts. By calming down and taking a break. People could also give people stuff. Ex: (Josh is sad, angry, Aukusti gives Josh a cookie.)

    I agree with Annie that solutions should be made quickly after the conflict started. My mom said that, ”If you get into a physical fight, even if you win you have already lost.”
    But the most infuriating are small conflicts between parents in my opinion, but wars are more raw and sad. People sometimes hate people only because they don’t like them or are against them at something, for ex: Putin. Killed a guy because he was a strong critic of Putin.

    I think in a conflict you could be more calm. because if you make a big deal about your fite maby with your friend then it can end up like a really big fite. like when I fite with my sister it can seem like it is a big fite but it’s not relly. Before a fight in tow contres you could like think if they have done any thing wrong to you. Because if you just go in to a land and try to take over it and they havent done something wrong I think its a big mestake.why do you want to take over a land when you allredy have a land and your from a land isn’t that inaph for them? I think you can solve a conflict by take a brake and calm down.

    People kill each other over land it is really stupid . Also people can still have army’s if there is no conflict just for something else . I don’t think prime nesters or presidents should have huge fights about this stuff just make an agreement that’s all.

    I think that one very bad solution is to eliminate all humans from Earth. It sometimes good to surender that can make the people to survive or not get hurt. I think that people can tell their own opinions and other people should not care unless it is something that is very bad for your people or family. It is good if you can discuss about the problem and agree on a solution. Maybe you have to deal a little bit so both get enough to be happy ex if two countries can not agree on who should have land, UN can help so that both get some.

    Wars are sometimes just useless, when you kill people you just kill them.And just because you killed a person doesn’t mean you won.So what Im trying to say is that there must be some other way then starting a war or a big conflict.So think about this before you start a war or a conflict.
    Some conflicts in schools are just funny or serious.Funny ones just dont need to happen, like when you cry and start screaming just because someone used your pencil. Now thats just stupid.
    And now serious ones, lets say someone hit you really hard and made you bleed, that is seriouse. How do you make this problem not big? Tell the person that hit you to say sorry, and I bet he/she will say it because you actully made someone bleed.Then you say to them” its ok,BUT dont do it again”.Then just go to the nures.
    So to avoid conflicts or war,just don’t do something that you think the person won’t like. Or just try to talk about it gently.

    I think a way to avoid conflict is to think before you do something. If you get mad at someone just for them taking your pencil, and you feel like physically hurting them you need to ask your self if it is necessary or not before you hit. But if it is a WAR you probably don’t think that way. So then maybe you could think how many people of your “side” will die in the war if you don’t die you life will be pretty sad and very boring. War is really not a great idea. Some conflicts are useless and some could be very serious. Some could keep on going forever and some only an hour or day, but there is a very big difference. My opinion is that no one should have war and the world will be so peaceful.

    I think that when 2 people/s get mad, angry or disagree over something they should actually take some time to calm down and think about it. Because, you know when you are angry you don’t think about anything? You need to think about it.

    If the conflict has already started, make sure it doesn’t get physical (if it is between friends or family) If it is something serious like taking over a country, you should share it, or halve the land. Either way, don’t get too angry and make sure it doesnt’ get serious.

    I think a way to avoid conflict is to think before you do something.You could end up doing something good that can help you make another friend or you can do something horrible and get sent to the principals office. either way you might get some good or a lot of good out of it, your choice.To avoid a war , that is more complicated than some people may think. Maybe you should flee to the closest most safest place and stay there until you may have to leave again. Also definitely do not be in the army , you have more chance dying there than anywhere else.

    People can make agreements over things like land or borders to prevent mass scale killing a.k.a. wars. If a war/ conflict has started, you should try and calm down/ make a agreement or peace treaty, but if the person who is angered is some sort of maniac e.g. Adolf Hitler or ISIS, then military force may be the only option. If your conflict is a small one, then you can probably solve it yourself by trading, ignorance, agreements or the classic [whining voice] “I’m gonna TELL on you”. If people can get along with each other, then oh, what a peaceful place earth will be. Problem is, we’re humans and have our own beliefs, personalities and likings which makes peace extremely difficult.

    I think the way to avoid conflict from happening is to know what problems you have first. If it’s a conflict of two groups (2 people) you just quickly make an agreement or else it will be a big conflict. Solving the big conflict is harder than smaller conflicts, it may cause to physically hurt someone righ away. If it’s war you have to make the other team to give up, the foreigners and the local people have to fly away b/c if you don’t you will end up killed, injured, and spend a long time in the refugee camp. Wars are dangerous and don’t think it’s cool because you’ll risk of dying more than 50%. Plus there will be protests and definitely massive amounts of destruction.

    Peoples in the future could do this. They could make and agreement about what they’re arguing for. If they can’t, ask a group of people, not few people because if you ask a large range of people there would be a mix of opinions unless it is a really obvious question. If there are few people your asking, there’s more chance they would all have the same opinion. If those groups are two COUNTRIES you can punish them by something worse then war. E.G countries could not trade with countries that are in war or conflict. If there in war, there wouldn’t be lot’s of supply so they would eventually stop fighting. If their having a conflict, and a conflict turns into a war, they wouldn’t have the supply so they would sooner or later stop fighting.

    Wars are bad and it doesn’t help very much for having a solution. It’s only being violent and kill people. You have to find out a solution that you both or more agree. A war is a bad way to solve problems.
    There are also many fights in school. Some of the problem would be a problem thats not really important. For example, When someone took your thing and used it. That’s not really a problem. It’s a small problem that can be solve fast. Some of the problem would kind of serious. For example, when some hit you, say bad words at you, and teased you that is really mean and rude to say to people. That’s a serious problem. Some people do physical thing when they are mad, then that causes more problem. Try not to hit and do physical things. You can talk or if it is really serious, tell the teacher. BUT first calm down.
