I found it amusing during our presentations of our papers how apparent the political views of my classmates were. People brought up taxes, the minimum wage, healthcare, and so on. I’d love to have a class discussion about some of the different policies mentioned for I was itching to make a comment!
If we were to have a class discussion about politics, I’d hope that it would be a discussion, not an argument. The ability to calmly approach controversial topics is a valuable life skill, and if we were to work on that in our tightly knit seminar, I would be appreciative.
