How did the British colonists evolve from good citizens to revolutionaries who could compose and back something as special as the Declaration of Independence? What were the causes of the American Revolution?…

Class, let’s talk about the Declaration of Independence in more depth. What makes it special? How would you relate this conversation to our present-day politics and controversies over how much tax we should be paying the government? Do you think we could compare this to our society today?

What about the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the movement of the “99%”? Do you see any comparisons that could be made? How are these two situations different? Do you think that the Occupy Wall Street movement was a success? How do you measure success? What do you think it would take to balance out the unequal distribution of wealth in this country?

So how might we compare the revolution to today’s politics? For instance, do you think that the Occupy Wall Street movement (“We are the 99%!”) has opened up more conversation in our country about the division of wealth? Do you think it might lead to some concrete changes in society? Why or why not?…
