Help me answer these questions:
2. One of Arendts arguments in chapter 2 is that the social question, which reduces politics to morality, leads to violence or the destruction of politics. She has three pieces of evidence for this: 1) the French Revolution was about the social question and ended in terror 2) the American Revolution was not about the social question and was more successful 3) The two greatest novelists (Melville and Dostoevsky) show us that goodness or morality cannot rule or be political without leading to violence. Explain and provide textual evidence for one of those arguments.
3. One of the arguments of chapter 3 is that the pursuit of happiness in the Declaration of Independence was about public happiness (republican- the happiness that comes from free participation) and not private happiness (liberal- the happiness that comes from enjoying your private property). Explain that argument and present some of her evidence for it.
4. In both cases, remember to cite.
