Cultural Mosaics. What are they?
Cultural Mosaics: How, Where, and Why?
Cultural mosaics are, obviously, created by humans and how we behave and interact with each other. The beliefs of people, how other people react and respond to these beliefs, and the underlying reasons for these beliefs all affect the cultural mosaic. There are many other things that also affect the cultural mosaic, and many, including some that I mentioned above, are not immediately visible. Cultural mosaics exist in all places that human beings live, and can exist whether there are 50 people or 50,000 people. The complexity can range greatly depending on the places population, as there can be people with 50,000 different ideas in a place with 50,000, but only 50 in somewhere with 50 people. These mosaics form as people interact and are based on the beliefs, ideals, and many other things of the people who are a part of it.

2. In our game, the power shifted to in multiple ways. First, the power ended up almost entirely resting in the Government-Military-Wealthy groups hands. Then it ended in the USA's hands as they made the decision of who to support and whether or not to invade Guatemala. An example of power shifting in real life would be the fall of the Western Roman Empire. After it was destroyed many kingdoms rose up from its remains, with none of them having the same power as Rome and leaving the power more spread around.
3. The power shifted in the game as some groups gained more MSU's and bargaining power. On the first day, the power did not change at all and no treaties were even signed. On the second day, the Government and Rich & Army combined into one group, and the Rick & Army gained a free death squad card, but they Guerillas also gained some MSU's, though they were still far behind. This gave us more power and allowed us to dominate the game for that day. On the final day the USA held the most power as who they gave the MSU's to potentially decided who won, and they could invade and decide who ruled the country. The USA gave the MSU's to the Guerillas, who then took over, but who then lost power after the USA invaded. This then put the Government back in power leaving us as the "winners".
