Human beings have been preoccupied with physical might and the threat of force throughout time, from clashes over mates, territory, or food to global positioning for nuclear war. Indeed, a brief review shows that written history is largely a history of warfare. Most states as we know them came into existence through violent struggle, conquest, or wars of independence (Keegan 1993). A large part of military history literature concerns the various cultural and official roles that combat has played in diverse societies.
In all but the most remote cultures, access to information through the media, computer links, advertising, personal interaction, and written communication has skyrocketed. The post–Cold War global dynamic has opened up economic markets and significantly decreased previous international restrictions on communication and cultural exchange. Urban residents in particular are exposed to a greater variety of material goods, fashions, music, ideologies, religions, politics, and technologies. They face more choices in lifestyle, dress, occupation, leisure activity, food, and living location than ever before.
Historians thus corroborate that violent conflict has played a vital part in the dynamics of human culture, politics, strategic development, and personal interaction. At the same time, nonviolent conflict also plays a vital role in healthy societies (Fahey 1993). Discord generates new thought, breeds fresh ideas, and is the origin of innovation. Without elements of conflict, individuals, communities, and governments would have less impetus to progress toward positive social change. Nonviolent struggle has historically given voice to the disenfranchised to articulate their condition and work toward creative changes in domestic policies (Fahey 1993).
