1)What is the author’s concept of:
democracy-elite (limited) or popular (expansive)?
freedom-negative (freedom from) or positive (freedom to)?
equality-process or results?
2)How do the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists view human nature? Why does Madison think individuals are “much more disposed to vex and oppress each other than to co-operate for their common good”? Why is Brutus more hopeful that, under the proper political circumstances, citizens will cooperate for their common good? Whose perspective on human nature do you find more persuasive?
3)In what ways is the debate between Madison and Brutus reflected in today’s political debates? In what ways have the arguments changed? Do contemporary defenders of a large policy role for the federal government share Madison’s fundamental assumptions? Do contemporary critics of the federal government share Brutus’s fundamental assumptions?
4)What are the most important differences between the elite democratic perspective and the popular democratic perspective? In your view, which side has the stronger case
5Mueller believes that there is no greater intrinsic value in being a “politics junkie” than in pursuing any other interest or hobby, whereas Loeb sees public involvement as essential for personal growth. Is there anything distinctive about political participation that makes it especially worthy of our time and commitments? Discuss.
6)Think of a policy issue that you are interested in. Which level of government do you think is the most appropriate one to make decisions on this issue? Why?
7)Many people argue that justice should be the same no matter where you live and therefore the federal government should establish minimal standards of fairness on certain issues. Do you agree or disagree? Do you think the federal government should guarantee every American medical care or a minimum income? Discuss
8)Do you think that marriage law (divorce, child custody, and so on) should be decided by the federal government or the states? What about educational policy? Should the federal government establish national standards in education?
9)Should illegal immigrants be eligible for welfare, food stamps, or Medicaid (government health insurance)? Why or why not? Discuss
10)Should the United States construct a wall along the entire U.S.–Mexican border? Discuss
11)Should legal immigrants be given the right to vote even before they become naturalized citizens? Why or why not? Discuss
12)There is a substantial amount of income inequality in the United States. As long as all citizens still maintain equal political rights, is such inequality necessarily harmful to democracy? Where would you draw the line between acceptable and unacceptable levels of economic inequality in a democracy? Discuss
13)“If you work hard and play the rules, anyone, regardless of race, religion, educational or class background, can achieve the American Dream.” Agree or disagree. Be sure to define what you mean by the American Dream
14)Milton Friedman stresses that the market economy is made up of voluntary exchanges. No one is forced to buy a particular product or to work for a particular company. What would Bowles, Roosevelt, and Edwards say about Friedman’s argument?
15)Opponents of Citizens United argue that corporations spend funds that ultimately belong to shareholders without getting the permission of shareholders. Is this a problem? If you owned stock in a corporation, would you object to that company spending money to defeat an elected official whom you supported?Discuss
16)Do you favor a system of public financing of elections in which candidates who receive a minimum of support can opt for public funding of their campaigns, paid for by voluntary dues checked-off on income tax returns, and thus avoid all private contributions?
17)Should the issue of same-sex marriage be viewed primarily as a matter of constitutional rights or as a matter of traditional social bonds? Why or why not?
18)Should the issue of same-sex marriage be decided by courts or legislatures, or should the electorate have the final say? Discuss.
19)Is the U.S. Constitution based on Christian values? If so, name them. If not, then discuss why many refer to the United States as a “Christian” country.
20)According to polls, Americans are evenly divided on whether God gives their country special protection. Do you think God intervenes in history to help your county? If so, give an example.
