Friday's discussion seemed to go in circles at times. I think part of this had to do with the confusion definition/use of the term Liberalism. In regards to trade embargos, the goal seemed to the embargos was overlooked. Instead we argueed over their immediate negative consequences without talking about the long-term effects. Government use trade embargos and invasions towards the same end. They seek to change the political structure or policies of political entity. Yes, invasion meens military conflict and loss of life, but it allows for total re-structuring. Policies which involve trade embargos also result in the death of the innocent. Political change comes through the struggles within in the country. Both policies create violence, disorder, and destruction; however, the hope is that following this, better governments and organizations will replace the previous. With these new tools, the people of the country and of the foreign power can prevent further disagreements and conflicts. I hoped to make this point in class, but time did not permit.
