With protests rolling throughout the United States (at the time of me creating this topic), I feel this is a timely discussion. In your opinion, what is the most effective method for changing society (think African American Civil Rights, Women’s Movement, Hispanic Movement, war protest, etc.)—voting, courts and legal systems, nonviolent civil disobedience, or violence? Fully explain your point. Provide some specific examples from actual events in the 1950s, 1960s, or 1970s to support your argument. How do those movements compare to the modern movements regarding race, gender, sexuality, and equality? What similarities and differences do you see?
Once your initial response is posted find either a post that agrees or disagrees and write a reply. If you are agreeing you must add to their post (don’t just write I agree). If you disagree you must give examples of where you feel their argument failed (don’t just write “I disagree”… oh, and be respectful please).
There will be a 25/25 split between the initial post and the reply on this one.
Good luck and I look forward to reading these responses.
