For this discussion, review the required resources and using DADT as an example please address the following:
- What do you see to be the potential strengths and weaknesses of policy borne of compromise?
- 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?
- 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. ?
- 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?
