Reflect upon the debate relative to the “How To Debate Yourself” podcast with Peter Schuck (link below).
Write a 2-3 page Reflection Paper that addresses the following points.
Identify the topic and up/down motion that structures the debate
State how you voted on the motion before and after listening to the debate (you don’t have to change but can).
Briefly summarize the stated points that were most influential to your thinking.
Detail two practical policy initiatives that follow your final position that you think will aid in resolving the dilemma. One must reflect the Ethical Absolutism paradigm and the other must reflect the Ethical Relativist paradigm. Clearly, state which is which.
Demonstrate what Peter Schuck calls “clear thinking” and support each resolution with logic and prior research.
Consider the probably positive and negative fallout for each of your proposed policy initiatives.
Make sure to include the name of the IntelligenceSquared debate name and its corresponding hyperlink in your paper.

Political Science Assignment Help Summary: You are required to conduct independent research on a criminal justice issue of your choosing. The subject matter for this paper is your choice as long as it relates directly to some issue of criminal justice and can be reasonably explained/argued in 4-5 pages of text. Choose an aspect of the criminal justice system you are interested in or curious about. Your goal here is to learn something new about the criminal justice system. Educate yourself as well as your instructor. Examples can include Alternatives to Incarceration, Asset Forfeiture, Bail/Financial Release, Boot Camps, Cameras on Police, CCTV, Curfews, Dating/Domestic Violence, Determinate Sentencing, Drug Courts, Drug Offender Response, DUI/DWI, Electronic Monitoring, Eyewitness testimony, Faith-Based Prison Programs, False Confessions, Family Courts, Firearms, Juvenile Death Penalty, Megan’s Law/Notification Laws, Mentally Ill Persons in Prisons, Plea Bargaining, Prison Privatization, Prisoner Reentry, Racial Profiling, Restorative Justice, Sex Offenders, Recording Interrogations, Tasers, Waiver/Transfer, White Collar Crime… These are just some suggestions; feel free to select a different topic.
Getting started: Once you select a topic (or as part of the process to select a topic) that interests you, it is a good idea to initially read and evaluate some of the literature about your topic, you want to make sure there is suitable information available and this research will help you develop a tentative or working thesis. A thesis is usually a single sentence somewhere in your first paragraph that presents your argument to the reader. For the rest of the paper, the body of the essay gathers and organizes evidence that will persuade the reader of the logic of your interpretation. For instance, a very simple thesis might be “Illegal drug use is detrimental because it encourages gang violence.” or “The America’s criminal justice efforts should focus on alternative sanctions such as GPS tracking because it would allow most citizens convicted of a crime to contribute to society, lower operating costs while still maintaining community safety.” In both cases, they make a claim and they tell the reader what to expect from the rest of the paper. The paper that follows should explain (with empirical support) why/how illegal drug use leads to gang violence and the resulting damage to society. Or explain how inefficient traditional sanctions are and the benefits of alternatives like GPS tracking of those who are under correctional supervision etc. * Your thesis statement or your introductory sentence for that matter should not be “In this paper, I will discuss X.” (or something along these lines). * Feel free to run your tentative thesis statement or sources by if you are unsure. Requirements: 1. Your research paper must be submitted (as a ‘word/docx’ document) to the Canvas assignments area no later than (11:59 pm) on January 16th. Please do not email your paper. I reserve the right to lower the grade for assignments that are handed in late (one letter grade each 24 hour period after the due date). Papers will not be accepted after January 18th.It should be about 4 to 5 pages of text (maximum of 6 pages – title page and works cited page do not count toward the page count). Further you should use a 12-point font, 1-inch margins, and papers must be double-spaced. 2. I recommend you get approval of your proposed topic prior to starting your paper. 3. Papers should cite materials using APA formatting therefore reference list must be included with at least 3 different citations of books or academic articles (World Wide Web sites are not normally suitable for research papers unless as a source for an online journal, research, or newspaper article – If you question the credibility of the information on a website – don’t use it. You may also ask me about it).

Polarization is one of the signature political phenomena of our times. 1) How have experts measured polarization among the mass public and among elites? 2) Discuss the evidence we have for the claim that polarization in the public is increasing and that it has risen to historically high levels. As polarization rises, one of the country’s two long-standing philosophies about government—Republican conservatism—is undergoing what may be perhaps a fundamental transformation in the Trump era. 3) What are the differences between Republican conservatism as practiced by Trump and the conservatism traditionally championed by Republicans since Ronald Reagan?
