    Hi Mike.

    i was just revising the Q4 part a for P1 june 2012 exam.The question clearly ask you to compare but when reviewing the answers the examiner provide a contrast answer.Could you please enlighten me on this.

      Compare and contrast are very closely related. If I compare something with another, it’s like having 2 objects, one in each hand, and finding their similarities but, in doing so, you are also effectively saying that whereas this one is round, the other one is ovoid

      Now that’s a comparison but it’s also a contrast

      If it were me facing such a question, I believe that I would read the requirement as “Compare and contrast …..”

    The point Mike made about ideas taken as fact upon which action can be justified to a certain group is a valid point.

    But there are interesting nuances to the whole issue of the war on terror as a risk management strategy. ie It was not a very good one.

    Thanks in advance for my next blog article.
