For this discussion, review the required resources and using DADT as an example please address the following:

  1. What do you see to be the potential strengths and weaknesses of policy borne of compromise?
  2. The 18-year process of repealing DADT suggests that policy termination can be a lengthy process. Should policies be inherently difficult to terminate, especially those rooted in public attitudes?
  3. Describe at least one direct (i.e. direct action against DADT) and one indirect (i.e., shifting cultural attitudes) way that the LGBT rights social movement supported the repealing DADT.  ?
  4. In general, how can a social movement help to implement or repeal a public policy?  What is another example of a social movement implementing or repealing a policy?
