There was a National Prohibition in the 1920s when there was a prohibition on alcohol consumption in the United States of America. Then, it became very difficult for the Americans to obtain alcohol in the market. This resulted in people drinking less alcohol. However, the people were thirsty and would drink no matter what type of alcohol or liquor they got. The cities and towns of America became full of illegal bars. These illegal bars were termed as speakeasies. Likewise, moonshine also came to surface which was less prepared alcoholic beverage. People also started peddling alcohol and smuggling it in the country.
Recent theory on civil wars urges people to think of the conflict as a highly fluid situation. Peacemaking efforts are often closely intertwined with preventive diplomacy , peacekeeping , and peacebuilding . Because of this, the diplomats and soldiers involved in these missions must maintain high levels of communication in order to ensure common goals and shared information. Peacemaking in the post-Cold War era occurs most often within states where battles lines are not clearly drawn and the strategic situation fluctuates frequently. Peacemaking in this context is but one tool to use in violent conflicts. By itself, it is insufficient to deal with intractable conflicts.
