For this discussion board assignment, you should start with a brief summary of chapter 11. Your summary should be about 100-150 words and the major response should be at least 150 words so in total your discussion post should be at least 250 words. Then, write a response to one the following major post questions.
Major Post Question Options (Please select at least one question from the list below):
In what ways have the trends in religious beliefs in Canada and the United States been similar to those in other industrial societies? In what ways have they been different?
What is the most basic difference between capitalism and socialism? Why does difference on this single point make the theories/philosophies so fundamentally different?
Why do differences in ideology have so much greater an effect on industrial societies than they did in agrarian and horticultural societies?
In what ways do the mass media affect public perception and public opinion in industrial societies? In what way are they being challenged by bloggers and the Internet?
Major Post: Your original post should be at least 150 substantive words. When answering the question(s), you should attempt to critically engage with the literature. This means going beyond a summary of what the textbook says about the topic. Rather, you should use that as a starting point for your own contribution.
Minor Posts: You must also respond to at least two (2) of your classmates’ posts in a substantive manner. Response posts should be at least 150 words each. It is not acceptable to repeat information from your original post in your response post to a classmate. Your response posts should propel the conversation started by your classmate forward. Posts consisting only of “I agree” or “Hello X, I enjoyed your post,” and so forth will receive no credit.
