QUESTION:

  1. Is it more important for government to protect civil rights or to avoid infringing upon civil liberties? Take a position and argue one side of this question – NOT BOTH. You will need to understand the changing dynamics of government protections of civil rights as juxtaposed to not interfering with civil liberties. As should be clear to you by now, US history is filled with examples where protections of rights clash with liberties and that is what you need to grapple with in this paper. Use evidence from the readings/class to support your argument.

Think about why social movements form and to what ends. What actions does government take to try to ensure equality under the law and how that is different from social equality. Think about if there are any examples of where social movements seeking rights creates government action that stands in contrast to civil liberties. In essence, when does civil rights matter over civil liberties, and consider how civil liberties are not open ended.
