For this assignment, consider the following scenario:
You are a passenger on a large ocean liner with 1000 passengers and crew, most of whom are not from the United States.
A storm hits, and the entire ship is lost to the sea. You, your fellow passengers, and the surviving crew find yourselves stranded on a deserted island.
Fortunately, you and your fellow castaways find enough food, water, and materials to build shelters for to ensure your survival, but you have no means to communicate with the outside world, and you learn that the ship was 1000s of miles off course. You learn there is little hope of a timely rescue, if there will be a rescue at all.
Several weeks have passed, and, due to unrest within the group, the need for some sort of government is vital for the group’s survival. You have been asked to join the committee who will decide how this government should be formed.
- In an essay of 500-750 words, persuade the group about the form your government should take and why. Consider and address opposing positions along with your rebuttal of those opposing positions. Use at least three sources to support your position (your textbook can be one of them).
- For instance you may write a paper explaining that the type of government selected is a democracy (and why) and the opposition would be those that disapprove of democracies (and why).
- Include a title page and at least three (3) references. Only one of your references may be found online (not Wikipedia). One reference can be your textbook. The other reference(s) must be found in the Grantham University online library.
