DeVry POLI330  Week 1 discussions

 
Politics in Our Daily Lives (graded)

 

As we read and discuss the definition of politics, let’s also consider the consequences of political decisions upon our daily routines.

Can you think of a time when a political act impacted your daily life? What made this experience political?

As we begin our discussions, let’s not forget to comment on each other’s posts. Can you see any similarities in your situations?

The Study of Political Science (graded)
Our text mentions that Political Science “seeks to study human behavior through the use of a scientific method that, at times, can prompt objections and debate.”

If this is true, why do you think this is the case? Please be sure to provide a specific example from the text to support your response.

Types of Power (graded)
If politics truly defines who gets what, when, where, and how, then those that succeed at this game must have some advantage in doing so. This advantage comes from power.

So, what is the definition of power? And what types of power are utilized in the political realm?

Theories Regarding the State (graded)
Chapter 4 begins with a description of Plato’s allegory of the cave. As we focus upon the ethical questions concerning the role of the state this week, let’s take a closer look at this parable.

What is the setting of the story? Who are the main characters? And what major events transpire?

 

 

DeVry POLI330 Week 3 discussions

 

 

Ideologies Compared (graded)
This week your Critical Reflection Paper compares the concepts of liberalism and socialism. To best prepare you for this assignment, let’s take a deeper look at the variations found within liberalism. Classical liberalism is based upon the work of John Locke and Adam Smith whereas modern liberalism focuses upon the work of T.H. Green.

So, what are the differences between these two forms of liberalism? And of the two, which do you agree with most?

Fascism Explored (graded)
Your text states that fascism is “an ideology that introduces totalitarianism as the objective of political decision making.” Its practice stands in opposition to both liberal and socialist ideals. So, what does fascism have against individualism, family, and pacifism?

 

 

DeVry POLI330 Week 4 discussions

 

The Supreme Court (graded)
The lecture this week suggests that the Supreme Court is the least democratic branch of government, and yet it serves an important function in our democracy. What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a branch of government that is not democratically elected? Would you change the way the court is appointed?

Democracies Compared (graded)
Over the past few weeks, we have had the opportunity to explore the roots of political philosophy. Let’s take a moment to focus in upon the idea of democracy. So, what is the true definition of democracy.

 

 

DeVry POLI330 Week 5 discussion

 
Parliamentary versus Presidential Systems (graded)

 
As we turn our focus to the international realm, let’s take a moment to compare the governmental systems of the UK and the U.S.

Identify a few key differences between a parliamentary and a presidential system. How is the top leader selected differently? How do you think this difference impacts the kind of people who are chosen?

This section lists options that can be used to view responses.

THE ROLE OF THIRD PARTIES (GRADED)
Third parties in the U.S. are notorious for their lack of success.

So, can anyone explain why this is?
DeVry POLI330 week 6 discussion

 

 

CHALLENGES TO WESTERN DEMOCRATIC IDEAS (GRADED)

 
People in democratic societies would like to think the process would/could/should work everywhere. But sometimes when democracy is exported, it’s rejected in the most emphatic and sometimes violent ways. What is it about the idea that people in non-Western societies don’t like?>

ETHNIC VIOLENCE (GRADED)
In discussing the concept of violence this week, let’s take a moment to consider the following situation.

Imagine a country where religious factions inside a nation want to have their own separate homeland. The government refuses, claiming the territory in question, which commands the nation’s only source of clean water, is vital to security. Is violence inevitable?

 

 

DeVry POLI330 Week 7 Discussion

 

 

The European Union (graded)

 


In considering the international realm, let’s consider the concept of economic treaties. Specifically, let’s think about an organization like the European Union (EU). Why was it formed? In addition, what are some of the objectives of the nations that are joining the EU?

Global Markets (graded)
Several countries around the world are transitioning to a market economy; the most significant of these are China and Russia. What do you think the impact will be on other countries around the world as these two countries become even more significant in the global economy? What are some examples of this impact?
