Write a four page, double-spaced, typed response to one of the following questions based on Arlie Hochschild’s Strangers in Their Own Land.
1) Explain the Great Paradox. What is it, and why does it persist?
2) Explain the deep story of the far right, and evaluate it. How did the far right come to view things this way, and do you think it is an accurate representation of the social situation in the US?
3) What do you think liberals do not understand about the far right in America – and what does the far right not understand about liberals? (Be sure to ground your answer with concrete examples from Hochshild’s book.)
