Discussion Questions for American Ideals reading
Section 2.2 Equality:
Is equality of condition an achievable goal? If so, how might it best be achieved?
Section 2.3 Rights:
Should our definition of rights be expanded to include new privileges? Or are there limits to the number of rights a government can protect? Either way, who should decide which rights are right for today?
Section 2.4 Liberty:
Should people be at liberty to say anything they please, no matter how hurtful it is to others? Or should liberty be limited at times to serve a greater good? If so, who should decide how, why and under what circumstances liberty should be limited?
Section 2.5 Opportunity:
How has the United States offered equal opportunity to all of its people? Or have some enjoyed more opportunity to pursue their dreams than have others? Is it enough to “level the playing field” so that everyone has the same chance to succeed in life? Or should special efforts be made to expand opportunities for the least fortunate among us?
Section 2.6 Democracy:
Why do so many Americans choose not to make their voices heard? Can democracy survive if large numbers of citizens decide not to participate in public affairs?
