Abstract or Summary
  • This study was designed to assess the effects of political participation upon hostility and the preference for violence. To investigate this problem a political participation scale was developed. 148 male subjects (mean age 22.6 years) and 93 female subjects (mean age 20.7 years) responded to the Political Participation Scale, the Helfant's Hostility in International Relations Scale, and the Buss-Durkee's Hostility Inventory. The results produced several conclusions: (1) low political participation is correlated to feelings of political incapability (r = -.39, P<.005); (2) low political participation is correlated to hostility toward foreign countries or people (r = -.16, P<.05); and (3) no significant correlation can be found between political participation and negativism (r = -.07) or assault (r = -.03), nor between political participation and preference for force (r = -.02) or preference for military solutions in the civil war in El Salvador (r = -.02). These findings are discussed in terms of political participation and political alienation; political participation and three types of hostility; and force vs. talk issue. The results also raised questions as to areas of possible future research on ideological factors and violence.
