Sample Issue:
Misuse of Social Issues
Politicians misuse information and perspectives on social
issues to generate political support for themselves
Politicians want voters to believe there is only a far left or a far right approach
to each social issue and they must choose the one their most comfortable with and oppose the other. They create fear about the risks of the extremes of the other side.
Following are examples of social issues that politicians misuse for their own political benefit:
Racism in America
Gun Control
Climate Change
