As you have seen throughout the course, almost everything is political. We discussed the foundations of the US, especially the Constitution, and the major institutions of the federal government. We examined the processes through which people participate and become informed about the political process, and the attitudes and beliefs of Americans. We reviewed mass movements, the rights and liberties that many groups have fought for, and the types of policies that have shaped the US economically and socially, and our relationship with the rest of the world. Many of these issues have affected your life to some extent, and future events will continue to affect you and your community. In this assignment, I invite you to reflect on the course and the things you learned, which may have changed your perspective.
You will write a paper (at least 2 full pages long) that discusses your answers to at least one (1) of following questions:
*In what ways is the quality of your life tied to decisions made by elected officials? What could you do to reach out to them if you had an issue you wanted them to address? Should more people hold their elected officials accountable for the decisions they make?
*As we touched on the first reflection paper, some scholars believe that schooling in the US is more concerned with conformity and obedience than teaching self and social empowerment and democratic values. Do most Americans then conform to dominant ideas about the world that they have been told because they have been raised to follow orders? Then, what do you feel we need to do to educate people in our society well-enough to participate in a democratic system?
*Which perspective has more merit in our political system: elite democracy or popular democracy? Which one should we try to aim for and why? Should all of our political decisions be left to experts and elites, or should some important decisions be made by the American public (workers, etc.)?
*We have seen the mergers and growth of large corporations over the last several decades, and the increased power they have over our political system and our lives; is this cause for concern? Why or why not? What should Americans do about this?
*What major issues are important to you now that you’ve learned more about American politics (such as education, healthcare, climate change, immigration, etc.)? What do you think you can do to address them? What benefits do you want to see from your efforts?
