President Franklin Delano Roosevelt presented what he termed a Second Bill of Rights, specifically, a Bill of Economic Rights to which he felt every American was entitled. For this forum:
1. View President Roosevelt presentation on YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EZ5bx9AyI4).
2. As a budding anthropologist, what do you think of these rights? Write at least three sentences in response to each question.
(a) Should people be entitled to these rights? Explain why “yes,” or why “no.”
(b) Could they be achieved? Through what kind of political action?
(c) How could the society cover the cost of implementing these rights? Through changes to taxation? Changes to budget? Something else?
