    international relations propose such dissimilar views about the international order that their opposition foster a discrete interpretation of the world and the role of force in it. Third, this discontinuous view of the world leads to a biased understanding of human nature and of social interactions, which leads either to the over reliance or, on the contrary to a denial of the use of force under any forms. The author thinks that collective support and legitimization of coercive actions strengthen the international order and is the best strategy to follow. However, establishing a common understanding of the terms international order, force, and coercion is necessary before examining each of these ideas successively. In The Anarchical Society, Hedley Bull defines international order as “a pattern or disposition of international activity that sustains [… the] elementary, primary or universal” goals of the society of states or international society.[4] These goals are self-preservation, sovereignty, peace, and the three goals of social life—security, truth, and property.[5] He also proves the existence of such an order and admits that anarchy best describes it.[6] Bull’s definition is admittedly states-centric and, since he first published it in 1977, it might be outdated.

However, in the fresco, it seems to be a religious rite of the bull worship rather than the fighting competition to differentiate between human’s strength and the bull’s. This ritual consists of an acrobatic…

    In retrospect, I remember opening the refrigerator and was about to take a sip of that red bull. Out of nowhere I heard someone called my name really loud; “Leeeee!”. My father was the one who yelled at me and quickly took the red bull away from my hand. Even until this day, I never knew why he took away the away and won’t let me drink it.
