Question:

For a writing warm-up, write one paragraph about the last song that you listened to and what it conveys.

Answer:

The song that I most recently listened to is Philip Glass's Violin Concerto no. 1. Although it does not contain lyrics, it does use repetitive melodies and strong motifs to convey a sense of anxiety and rush. The rhythms in the first movement start off as rather calm and relaxing, but the tempo increases and the melodies of the strings become frantic and dizzying. I would say that the three movements together convey a story of panic, but they also expel a sense of beauty that can be found in such extreme emotions.

Question:

Describe the background of Employment Division v. Smith (1990) and the precedent that it set for religious rights in the United States.

Answer:

This case arose after members of an indigenous American tribe were denied unemployment benefits due to being fired for having used peyote in a religious ceremony. After suing and elevating the case to the Supreme Court, the majority opinion held that states were allowed to deny unemployment benefits for drug use - even for religious purposes. Furthermore, this entailed that such religious ceremonies were not protected by the First Amendment because the law did not explicitly target practitioners of that religion. Rather, it targeted the use of drugs altogether.
