What Does Our Government Owe Us?
This page features archival information and video footage from select Philosophy, Religion, and Humanities Forum talks in recent years.
Panel, “What Does Our Government Owe Us?”
November 4, 2015
Eastview Campus 8500
Don Becker, Philosophy Professor
Bryan Register, Philosophy Professor
Matt Watkins, Philosophy Professor
ACC professors, Don Becker and Bryan Register will explore these questions: Should governments exist? If so, should they only provide minimal police, judicial, and military protection, as libertarians urge, or more positive welfare aid such as housing, healthcare, and educational opportunities, as most liberals urge? How should citizens respond to governments that fail to provide these?
