Prof Lauren Conj Comm 301 15 November 2015 A chief aim of the Constitution as drafted by the Convention was to create a government with enough power to act on a national level, but without so much power that fundamental rights would be at risk.

This concern arose largely out of the exp

Make the best case you can for public funding of the arts. There are two main worries about public funding of the arts. One is that there seem nowadays to be so many more urgent calls on public money. Isn\'t public funding for the arts an unaffordable luxury?

Are the arts being picked out for special privileges, perhaps thanks to snobbery? I will try to sho
