Throughout the semester there was much discussion as to what would drive an individual to create situations of political violence or revolt against their government. In our class discussions it was overwhelmingly agreed upon that the absence of, or extinguishing of human rights which are innate to human life and society would cause such reactions in a rational population. Modernly, all individuals have a right as supported by the international community to human rights and basic dignities.
