[SOLVED] American Democracy
In a minimum two-page essay describe in detail the growing strains being placed on American Democracy and how to address them.Students around the world are taught that the United States is the worlds oldest constitutional democracy. It may not be or was ever perfect how could it have been when enslaved people were excluded and women only got the vote 100 years ago but for the most part it works, supported by our system of checks and balances and the familiar call to a government by “We the people.”Deep cracks are beginning to show in some of our core institutions and the structures of democracy itself that raise the question: How fragile is our democracy? How best can our American democracy address issues of freedom, democracy, equality, and civil rights? From issues of racial justice to electoral reform, the expansion of Executive Power, and the fight against economic inequality these issues and more produce profound anxiety about the current state of the nation and the future of American democracy as we know it.NPR- Freedom House Report Finds Freedom On The Wane WorldwideLinks to an external site.Foreign Policy-Heres How the 2020 U.S. Elections Resemble Those of Fragile DemocraciesLinks to an external site.The Hill (Opinion)- Democracy under threat this is how it happensLinks to an external site.Cornell Chronicle-Mettler explores threats to US democracy in new bookLinks to an external site.Protect DemocracyLinks to an external site.
