Reading Journal (14)
Chapter eleven and twelve of the book “We the People” by Jonathan addresses the vital issues captured in the course work. The issues include bureaucracy and the federal courts. The article explains that American citizens rely on government bureaucracies to meet their most crucial achievements. However, the citizens do not realize the importance of public bureaucracies in providing daily services and emergency management (Ginsberg et al. 344). Every activity in the national, including religious, social, economic, and political, is all accessible and possible due to government bureaucracy. The article goes further to provide examples of some of the vital government bureaucracies which are mentioned to include “the Environmental Protection Agency, Weather Service, the U.S. Department of Transportation, the student loan programs of the U.S. Department of Education, the U.S. Postal Service, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Federal Aviation Administration, and the Advanced Research Projects Agency (which developed the Internet in the 1960s)” (Ginsberg et al. 344). Therefore, the author explains that American citizens would not meet their significant goals without critical and organized operations of such agencies and would similarly spend more to acquire certain vital services. Therefore, to make the importance of government bureaucracy more vital, the author takes the readers through the definition of the term. Consequently, in the chapter, bureaucracy is defined as a complex organization of office tasks, desks, structures, and principles to ensure that all large-scale institutions get to carefully and effectively coordinate their personnel’s works. Additionally, the chapter also clarifies the major goals expected to get promoted by the federal agencies. Such goals have been mentioned to include maintaining a strong economy, promoting and providing services that promote public welfare, and promoting national security.
Subsequently, the article analyses what the government does and its necessity in the chapter about the federal courts. The article presents the role of the government through the functions of the Supreme Court. It explains that most Americans view the Supreme Court through partisanship lenses since most of the Supreme Court’s higher profiles are never elected but appointed (Ginsberg et al. 371). American citizens argue that it is ironic that Supreme Court do not campaign to be elected like other political leaders when various activities and processes in the Supreme Court remain as political as those in the congress; it often has the responsibility to listen to ad address the life of ordinary American citizens. Therefore, to help the readers comprehend the government’s role through courts, the author creates a general overview of various cases and courts in the American legal system. Examples of the cases include the criminal law case, which involves disputes regarding criminal penalties. Another type of case is civil law, which includes disagreements between individuals and the government, which, however, does not involve criminal penalties. The types of courts, on the other hand, include appellate, trial, and supreme.
Three Important Elements from the article
Liptak, Adam. “Supreme Court Seems Ready To Back Payments To Student-Athletes”. Nytimes.Com, March 31, 2021, https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/31/us/supreme-court-ncaa.html.
The article explains the American Supreme Courts efforts to support payments for student-athletes. The article involves views of various judges and lawyers views concerning the payment of student-athletes. For instance, the article involves the views of Justice Clarence Thomas, who argues that other college sports participants get enormously paid and give examples of coaches who have had their salaries ballooned. Thus, Justice Thomas argues that students are similarly vital contributors in sports hence should be paid.
The article relates to the syllabus since it defines the American government’s role through courts to serve the citizens. The syllabus maintains that the American government creates and promote justice for all citizens. Similarly, the article showcases a scenario where the government, through the court, fights for student-athletes payment in American colleges.
