I would ask them to compare and contrast the two prominent belief systems, left and right. For the left I would ask them to evaluate the pros and cons of the beliefs of Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot, Kim Jong Il, Castro, Chavez and (some number more at their choosing). Then compare to the founding fathers like Washington, and other signers of the Declaration of Independence and also Ronald Reagan, Tea Party beliefs. Which has brought mass murder and which brought general prosperoty?
prosperoty should be prosperity. Typing in the dark! Another thing might be to look at the communist goals and identify where it is being implemented in clear sight today. Back in the 1960’s (I think) there was a list of communist goals for overthrowing the USA that was read into the congressional record. Maybe someone can post a link.
