In Unit 2, you learned about specific government artifacts, including the Constitution, the amendments to the Constitution, Acts of Congress, and Executive Orders. You also explored the processes used to create these tools that molded modern culture into what it is today.
While these artifacts may seem only like governmental paperwork, they are manifestations of a massive social change (formation of a nation) and examples of human achievement to build and empower our modern culture collectively.
For this second assignment, you will write a reaction response that could be published as a Blog to the following ‘fictional’ Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:
Section 1. Effective immediately, the manufacture, sale, or transportation of any wi-fi or 5G devices is hereby prohibited. This will include cell phones, tablets, watches, and laptop computers.
The government has already shown through the 18th Amendment (alcohol prohibition) that they can restrict products bought or sold to Americans whether you enjoy using the product or not. Your task for this assignment is to argue either ‘for’ this amendment or ‘against’ it based on its impact on American culture.
To do this, consider how you use these tools to interact with others, share music, produce art, or express spiritual understanding. For some, these tools have caused a divide in human experience, and they might prefer to go back to a human-to-human experience. For others, these tools define their interests, relationships, and daily life.
