- Are human rights individual rights, or do they also include group rights?
- The Ralph Bunche website provides an intriguing question: Are we, citizens of the United States, doing a good job of upholding the rights listed in The Declaration of Universal Rights? Why or why not:?
- In her article entitled Anthropologists, Cultural Relativism, and Universal Rights, Carolyn Fluehr-Lobban states that:
“Cultural relativism, long a key concept in anthropology, asserts that since each culture has its own values and practices, anthropologists (and outside viewers of a society) should not make value judgments about cultural differences. As a result, anthropological pedagogy has stressed that the study of customs and norms should be value-free, and that the appropriate role of the anthropologist is that of observer and recorder.”
Some think that Anthropologists should not just observe culture but take a stand on key human-rights issues. Do you agree?

This week’s reflection will be your response to this game. Please play the game and see if you can “save our social security system”. Those with a last name that begins with A-I will reflect on the Benefits Reduction portion of the game, while those with last names beginning with J-Z, will discuss the Revenue Increase portion of the game. Let us know what answers you chose and why you chose those answers, what have you learned about the future of social security and how will what you have learned effect YOUR future? This reflection should be at least 400 words (word count should be in the subject of your reflection). Cite any sources used in APA format, however outside sources are not necessary this week.
My last name start with A so reflect on the Benefits Reduction portion of the game only.
