Democracy is predominantly practiced by the western world. The disdain Arab nations have towards colonial powers has given democracy a negative connotation. Discuss the causes and effects of the lack of democratic governance in the Middle East. The populations of oil-producing states in the Middle East benefit from the distributive nature of the state, and thus have no reason to pursue greater political freedoms. Non-oil producing states on the other hand have an authoritative one-party system where the regimes promise economic well-being and security/stability in their region in exchange for the population’s political freedoms.

The two most destructive events in the history of humanistic progress are revolutions and war because they often occur together and they leave massive disarrangements in society. Although revolutions and war cause deaths, human suffering and reorganization of society, they occasionally the result of modernity creating progress in industry, new impetus for commercial progress, and they redress the inefficiencies in development (Eisenstadt, 2017). Both the American Revolution and the French Revolution were terrible events particularly for people who have so much love and admiration for the aristocracy. For enlightened liberals, the two events were sadly inevitable, regardless of the horror they left behind. In the case of the French, a king and his queen were beheaded and the aristocracy abolished.

Strategic Analysis Reporting
Organizations are always looking to overcome the challenges of evolving, dynamic, and unpredictable markets if they are to maintain a competitive advantage over other companies in the same industry. One of the ways they do this is by incorporating insights from strategic analysis models. According to Papulova & Gazova (2016, p.572), a strategic analysis tool consolidates company information about how to evaluate and develop their current environment. It also identifies threats and opportunities to businesses that managers should consider during decision making (Papulova & Gazova, 2016). With that said, the following article will be a review of Flight Centre Limited (FLT), which is one of the companies in the travel industry.

All business entities have to invent and change over time for the simple reason that everything changes because of new knowledge, scientific and industrial development, and changing competitive environments. Innovation involves creativity because there has to be a shift in the problem definition for new ways of finding solutions to emerge. Entrepreneurship, which is the overall disposition to avail the power of creativity and innovation to facilitating solution to the problems of society and business, thrives simply due to the advancement of knowledge (Dodgson & Gann, 2010, p. 60). However, knowledge or scientific research that is not controlled is potentially dangerous and even disruptive. Creative problem solving as a theory of business innovation is based on the consideration that all innovations need to be sustainable and fit-for the purposes sought in the industry or business. Creative problem solving depends of safeguards attributed to the situations and circumstances of innovation. Without safeguards and a compounded analysis of the intrinsic and extrinsic factors involved, creativity might be counterproductive. In contemporary management and ethical leadership standards, creative problem solving as a mechanism of innovation should address the immediate needs of the business while also making a critical cognizance of the long-term and protracted consequences.
