GOD BLESS AMERICA By, STEFAN RADUNOVIC Unit 1 Unit 1 was all about the Consistitutional Underpinnings. We first learned what political power was and why we need politics in the first place. We then went on to the idea of Democracy and John Locke’s social contract theory, that “The view that the consent of the people is the only true basis of any sovereign’s right to rule”. Unit 1 taught us that there are two types of democracies, direct and indirect representation democracy also know as a republic, and the pros and cons for both types. One of the main questions reguarding democracy was, who really has control in a democracy?

The Difference between High school and College Throughout the essay, “The Difference Between High School and College”, Professor Jack Meiland approaches college work by comparing college to high school. Professor Meiland says, “a large part of college work consists with discussing and examining the basis of current beliefs” (Meiland). Meiland states that, even though both systems require students to observe basic knowledge, college guide students to search for the foundation and reasons behind the topics. Meiland states that during the high school, students are introduced to ideas based on the facts, which are presented as if they were an absolute truth. However, he says, college expects students to have a higher and deeper understanding of the material.
Constitutional Law Unit 2 IP Abstract The author of this paper compares three similar provisions in the U.S. Constitution and the Articles of Confederation. She discusses how these provisions have served to make the federal government more responsive to the needs of the people. She outlined the major philosophical themes of the U.S. Constitution and the Articles of Confederation and she references directly from the two documents to support her statements. The US has operated under two Constitutions. The Articles of Confederation is our nation’s first constitution.
I have the students get into their groups and hand each group a topic- food, dress, traditions, religion, or trade. I have each topic on an index card and have the groups pick a card to get their topic. I instruct the students to search online and find three facts for their topic. I hand out the Navajo Culture handout for them to fill out as they conduct their research. This handout has one column for the Navajo Indian's culture and one column for the students' culture.

A defense of political constructivism Nicholas Tampio Department of Political Science, Fordham University, Bronx, NY 10458, USA. email@example.com Abstract In Political Liberalism, John Rawls describes a metaethical procedure – political constructivism – whereby political theorists formulate political principles by assembling and reworking ideas from the public political culture. To many of his moral realist and moral constructivist critics, Rawls’s procedure is simply a recent version of the ‘popular moral philosophy’ that Kant excoriates in the Groundwork for the Metaphysics of Morals. In this article, I defend the idea of political constructivism on philosophical and political grounds. Initially, I argue that political constructivism is the best available methodology for self-legislating, socially embedded and fallible human beings; then I show that political constructivism may produce principles that could garner the principled assent of Euro-American Muslims such as Taha Jabir Al-Alwani.
The Rawlsian concept of social justice can be broadly defined by its three constituent parts: what a person owes society, what people in that society owe each other and what society owes the people (Chenoweth & McAuliffe 2012, pp.41-42). Democracy is the notion that the government is accountable to the people through the citizens’ participation in free association and election (Woodward, Parkin & Summers 2010, p.3). The common thread which runs through and holds each of these concepts together is participation. Right here a diagnostic distinction can be made between a formal citizen and a substantive citizen. The former is merely a legal status and ensures some basic negative rights (Galligan & Chesterman 1999, p.8); while the later means participation and validation in the democratic process through the active disinterest of the public good (Saul 1997, p.79).
