Government Violations

Work Time

Complete a Quick Write.

  • List as many things as you can think of that citizens should never tolerate from their government.
  • Try to think not just about egregious violations but also about more everyday concerns, places where government might encroach upon its citizens’ rights.

Write and share your thoughts with your classmates. Determine which violations you can imagine a government actually committing and which seem beyond what a government would really do.
