THE TWO FACES OF POLITICAL
Conflict and co-operation are the two faces of political
science. As a matter of fact, they are two sides of the same coin.
Conflicts are not desirable but unavoidable and inevitable
in human society. Conflictsmay arise due to many factors like social, economic,
cultural and psychological. Whatever may be the degree or stage of conflict,
solution has to be found out to solve it.
The state is the final authority in society. It finds
solution in the form of integration. State enacts laws, rules and procedures
for society. The state can also use force through police, the army and the
prisons. But is should be used as a last resort. To be preciseforce should be
used as the very, very last resort. Education plays a major role in the process
of integration. The newspapers, the radio, the television and internet are
important. Welfare of the people is the aim of every state. With the
advancement of science and technology, a new set of conflicts are not ruled
It is the responsibility of the
state to solve the conflicts paving way for the welfare of the people. And of
course, there is no denying the fact that, that is the aim of the state.
