Past & Present Dispute Resolution from a Sociological Perspective
Voting Rights are as precious today as they were at the birth of our Nation. Putting the bitter battles fought over now & then into a Sociological context helps us understand why it is so important to Vote in every Election, every time & to never sit one out.
In the present day, people are still fighting bitter Court battles over Voting By Mail during the Covid19 Crisis.
It is the right thing to do to saves lives while people exercise their Right to Vote.
Very much like the question of whether saying the word "BITCH" is EVER Socially Acceptable speech to use in public. It is NOT. It is infuriating Hate Speech.
In studying the History of our Founding Documents, I find it completely fascinating that there has been a complete & total Role Reversal between the Democratic & Republican Parties of today as compared to the Democratic & Republican Parties of yesteryear.
American History has had a rocky beginning from the start, beginning with the Revolutionary War, the Civil War & World War 1 - which is the time-frame that the Constitution & resulting Amendments contained in the Bill of Rights were fought over, written, re-written & ultimately Legislated into Law.
That's a whole lot of warring going on.
Just as today when people cannot "Disagree with Decency" people still need to learn the art of Dispute Resolution, Conflict Management & Anger Management.
These are basic Sociological concepts: the study of how Individuals behave in a group.
