With these opposing characteristics, Jackson became the center of many debates and conflicts, hero or villain? A villain. He was a vile president with a hot temper and a craving to expand, no matter what the cost; his presidency alone was atrocious, with the Panic of 1837 and him being the cause of the Trail of Tears. His official presidency started in 1829 and proceeded throughout the years leading up to 1837. Before he began the life of a president, he was politically active between the 1820’s and the 1830’s.
By:Aman Parmar Internal conflict and strife affects people throughout their lives and the way an individual handles it may speak to who the character is, and how they view the people around them.In the book 1984 George Orwell created a world in which Winston, and many others lives are controlled by the party, resulting in fear, which may lead straight into conflict with themselves.Conflict between the characters and the party, and strife between O’Brien and Winston.The internal conflict and strife that is developed by the characters can lead to a certain thought or representation of an individual or group that can lead to two different outcomes, one in which makes the character understand, or the complete opposite, as they face challenges that they aren’t used to.

Quite possibly the most glaring demonstration of conflict from the very beginning of the novel is Man versus Man conflict. It’s difficult to place a story in one of the most famous wars fought in American history without the violence and brutality that comes along with it.

It projects a patriarchy of elite white men who repress the majority of the population through sexist and racist policies. In this puritanical state, Commanders are political leaders and lawmakers who support and contribute to the rise of Gilead.
