In what ways can individuals, corporations, or governments make profit off of war and social conflic

I don't want to know who makes money as much as I want to know how they make money off of it. I know things like oil sales, ammunition, etc. for wars, but what about social conflicts like the social conflict of legalizing same-sex marriage, abortion, creationism vs. evolution, etc.

I am not trying to make money off of war or social conflict, I am writing a paper based on the opinions of other people. Part of the assignment is to ask family, friends, and other random people.

Governments can profit from anything by simply taxing it. Some doctors and medical facilities profit from abortion. Wedding chapels are profiting from same-sex marriage and all humans have profited from evolution compared to the remaining living things on earth.
