DQ 1: Think of someone who you consider to be an elite in your local area (a mayor, council member, business leader, public personality). Why do you consider them an elite? What kind of influence do they have? Do you think that they use their influence for their own gain or for the benefit of the general public? What danger do they face in possibly losing influence or power?
DQ 2: If you were selecting someone to be the head of a political party, what would be the most important criterion for your selection? Why is this the most important characteristic for a party leader?
