A Fundamental Global Problem

A Fundamental Global Problem Paper instructions: Identify one fundamental global problem. (A fundamental problem is a problem that is at the root of other problems. Some think population growth is a fundamental problem; others think it is globalization; others think it is women’s injustice or women’s lack of education.) 1) Provide a brief argument for why the problem you have identified is a fundamental problem. (Use reason and facts to support your argument.) 2) Suggest an approach to improving this fundamental problem. In order to do this you will need to justify assigning remedial responsibilities to one group and not another, and then you need to suggest what measures the responsible agents may use to remedy the situation (e.g. can they make the situation œbetter by force?). 3) Finally, identify some plausible criticisms of your argument and proposal and offer a short reply.
