C. Your completed paper.
You are not expected to do any outside research or reading, but you can cite arguments, ideas, and examples from lecture and optional, recommended readings. References to material from readings or lecture and any short direct quotations must be properly cited. All work, wording, and ideas that are not cited must be your own.
Please choose one of the two prompts below. You should provide an introductory paragraph about your chosen topic, present a thesis statement, and then write several paragraphs providing examples and elaborating on these to support your thesis. You should then have one or two including paragraphs restating your argument and making a case for its significance.
Prompt 1. Liberalism and anarchism both developed in part out of concerns about state tyranny, and each came to its own conclusions about what role the state should have in an ideal world. How and why are liberalism and anarchism’s views of the state similar or different? Which provides a more convincing case? Formulate an argument and support it using examples, from readings and lecture, of authors’ arguments and real-world cases.
Prompt 2. Ideologies are designed to organize not only political life, but also social life, and so they offer different visions of how people live or how they should live. Liberalism and fascism see different roles for individuals in their ideal societies. What do each of them see as giving individuals meaning, and why do they take different stances on this issue? Choose one of these
two ideologies and discuss the potential flaws or downsides in its ideal vision of individuals’ role in society. Formulate an argument and support it using examples, from readings and lecture, of authors’ arguments and real-world cases.
