Anyway, I need to type up a 5-7 page paper either agreeing or disagreeing with the statement given. I need to support my argument with materials from my book and/or outside of class (this means I need references and citations). [Totally ignore part of that -- it should be my job to understand that part]
Our first paper revolves around the following:
American society was inegalitarian and antidemocratic from the time of the writing of the Constitution, and in the last 200 years the American political system has become even more antidemocratic and inegalitarian.
I've been to the library a few times for material on this, but the librarians told me that the timespan asked for this paper is a bit too broad -- as well as the fact that it includes egalitarianism and democracy. So, I call on the help of the MMOG-community to help me and collaborate on a few issues and events that would best support my argument. It at all possible, please cite your sources so I may take a little peek at them. I'm mainly looking for websites. My library doesn't have a big supply of US History-related text that is updated with today's views on the past. (The earliest book I could find there was published in 1972. q____q)
[Another problem I have with this is that I'm very stuck on which side to chose. If possible, please post your views on the issue so I can have different perspectives on it. My personal preference is to learn materials with different points of views to better understand what it is I'm trying to learn.]
