What are some flaws/struggles of the United States policymaking process?
Policymaking in the United States struggles because of intensely polarized political views, which often leads to gridlock. Gridlock occurs when these divided groups cannot come to a negotiation, thus leading to no policy being created. Another policymaking issue in the United States is that of budgeting. Programs that do get past divisive political views must also receive funding. As different politicians want to fund different projects, it can be difficult to secure necessary funding. Without funding, many programs effectively die in Congress.
How can cultural expectations and colonialism impact the environment?
Colonialism brought with it the introduction of non-native species to countries around the world. As these species were introduced alongside the height of colonialism, with which often came the idea that the colonizers (the non-native species) were superior, protection of these non-native species became elevated, thus harming the environment by failing to protect the beneficial species that already existed there.
