Chapter 10 Applying What You’ve Learned: Three Issues

PLEASE NOTE: This book is currently in draft form; material is not final.

Ultimately, politics is how we deal with the issues that confront us as human beings on the planet Earth. It’s popular to say we live in an increasingly globalized world; to some extent that’s true. More people travel; more trade occurs between nations; and the decisions of any one nation usually affect people’s lives in other nations. The list of issues we might consider, use things they see and hear on the news now make sense.
