Unit 2 Summative
Power is also shifting between the social groups all the time too. At points in time some groups may have power over the others, but it can always switch. Say one groups over powers the other group by signing a treaty with another country to get more support then the power should shift to them. This is happening all the time and usually not one person has all the power forever. For example in the early twentieth century Germany and Japan tried to work together to gain power but never got it and power shifted to someone else. In the early 21st century the big states of Asia, now Asia's growing economic power is translating to political power and military power. When the power shifts it is usually positive for the group getting the power. For example it is positive for the Asia states getting the power because now they can have more control with the power they are getting. The group having the power shift away from them is usually negative. It is negative because now that they don't have the power they may not be able to control the people without power anymore. Sometimes if it is a country losing the power then it can negatively affect all the people in the country. They may not be able to get proper supplies they need to survive. This is how power shifting applies in the real world.
