In 2012, a filmmaker posted a video online about the plight of child soldiers in Africa. It became a "viral video," attracting thousands of watchers around the world. Is this type of activity important in U.S. political and civic life? Explain your response and give at least two additional examples of how a person can participate in a democratic society.

    Yes, this type of activity is important. The difference between our country with the Internet and "viral videos" is that our representatives have to be more responsive to current events. It can impact who we vote for in an election and it can change where we spend our money. It allows us to stay apprised of the global situation, which is also important. Two other examples of direct democracy, which is the key word that you're basically getting at... town hall meetings and ballot referendum/referenda.
