  • The Causes Of War In The Korean War

  • The Importance Of Media On War

    Media has the power to change people’s opinion on war, but it is up to those people to decide whether or not they want to be influenced. I think that most people hold firm beliefs regarding war, whether they are against it, or for it. When they go to see a movie, or watch a television show, they do not necessarily go with the intention of changing their opinion, so they just tend to block out any ideas that are contradicting to their beliefs. However, the few that actually absorb the information…
