Excerpt from Term Paper:

to plot and execute the play. The word collaboration is not the right terminology, in many of the cases; it has been observed that the third person is forcibly involved into such scheme. Involvement into any heinous and illegal crime is punishable, and therefore the third person has no legal coverage, but it will be wrong to prosecute the third person for the foul play, and its outcome. An individual can truly never achieve or secure his or her objective through sole efforts, at any stage of the foul play; the offender surely seeks the permission and support of the third support. (Alex Peter Schmid, Ronald D. Crelinsten. Western Responses to Terrorism. 1993. pp. 193. Collier Macmillan Publishers)

Therefore have been reported murderous actions where the culprit turn offensive, may be due to the practice of any of his subordinate or associate, who did that without any intention of motivating the culprit to perform and involved into any criminal practice. It was once reported that, in the suburbs of United Kingdom, the prosecutor killed more than twenty maids, because of the maid cheated him. This can be form of collaboration, in which the third person is not aware about the crime and its intensity. In other case, a group of travelers in Indonesia were killed, and their belongings were snatched during their stay in the local motel. During the interrogation it came evident that motel owner was involved in it, and was under the pressure of the local criminal gang, as the owner's family was under the custody of the gang. This is another form of collaboration, under force and pressure. In other events, a gang of criminals busted into the bank and took away the valuables, during the course of interrogation it was revealed that the security officer was part of the plan, and had due share of the stolen money. This is condemnable form of collaboration. (Coramae Richey Mann. Unequal Justice: A Question of Color. 1993. pp. 36. Oxford Publishers)

FORMS ON EVIL AND HUMAN NATURE

The second quotation is the description of the main character walking in a snowstorm. The conceit of man was explained by this storm to be very engine of life, which persisted and survived for longer. Swede, the main character, walked into the hotel, and attempted to start a conversation by making different statements like, 'I suppose a lot of people get killed here', he continued, 'I suppose I am going to be killed before I can leave this house'. At this particular moment, the hotel owner moved in to pacify Swede, and offered him couple of drinks of whisky. Swede then started off playing cards, and he accused the owner's son of cheating at cards, and get involved in brawl, and left hotel. Swede then entered a saloon, and had a quarrel with real gambler and was killed.

If we look into our society, we experience the similar situation in a different manner. Men are reportedly involved in different offensive and aggressive acts, which are deplorable and condemnable. The mankind has contributed significantly towards the social, political and economic growth of any particular region, but if the progress is evaluated critically, we observe that the progress achieved is much less than what the potential of the individuals can offer. So where do we lose our abilities, the abilities and qualities of people are lost, because of the involvement of the mankind into different argumentative sessions, which delays and curtail the progress and its scope.

The human social system has varied geographically, but the essence remains the same. Irrespective of the geographical affiliation, we have observed that people with different background are involved in such actions which are cause of distraction from the main purpose and objective. Often, we experience such situations in the business activities and politics, where individuals end up with differences of opinion and such differences take horrible face-let. In the political world, much of the differences are either ended with financial dealings or power sharing, and if such stage is not achieved, the differences simulate into murderous actions. There are continuous efforts from either of the group to retain and achieve supremacy, in terms of power, reward, and finances. In order to achieve all this, the individuals are involved into such a level, where there is no returning back. The individuals are involved in non-negotiable practices, which is highly condemnable. This moulds their psychology, and in many of the cases, it has been reported, that such individuals within our social system, require no judicial treatment instead mental treatment is proper dossier from them. (Purdue University Department of English, Purdue University Modern Fiction Club. Modern Fiction Studies. 1958. pp. 254. Purdue University Publishers)

It is important to understand the social, criminal crimes are not god-gifted, such plans and techniques have either evolved with passage of time, or referred from the past. No individual has the personal or inborn characteristic to perform any heinous crime, unless he or she is forcibly tied into such situations where the escape lies only by the execution of criminal plot. Therefore, the success and execution of the criminal plot, is likely to motivate the individual to perform series of such actions to secure and achieve the goals. Therefore either the individual learns from the society, or it is that society compels the individuals to develop such mentality and thoughts. (Rhodes Thompson, Stewards Shaped by Grace: The Church's Gift to a Troubled World. H.W. Wilson Company. 1990. pp. 63. Collier Macmillan Publishers). It has been reported that the psychology and the mentality of the individual is related with such events. If person is mentally sick, isolated and has deserted living, is more likely to accept and execute such plots, as compare with an individual who is having perfect living. The deadlock will persists as long as the mankind does not mutually combat the social evils, and further ensure that the rights of every single individual are protected and offered, furthermore, it is important that the individuals are respected. No offensive or aggressive approach should be towards other person, unless that can be justified.
