Reflect: This week, you began learning about the major concepts, terms, and theories that embody political science. In this weekly assignment, you will connect the concepts of atomization, peer policing, and preference falsification to how a government can govern. These three techniques are often used by political leaders to prevent radical groups from forming in opposition to the central government. Analysis of how these techniques are used by leaders to oppose any collective action to overthrow the system will broaden your understanding of how governments maintain control over their citizens.

Write: In your essay of at least three pages, you will draw connections from the Sedition Act of 1798 to the concepts of governmental control discussed this week in your course text, A Novel Approach to Politics, by addressing the following:

· Discuss how the Sedition Act of 1798 enhanced governmental control over U.S. citizens (1 page).

· Explain how atomization, peer-policing, and preference falsification techniques were utilized in the Sedition Act of 1798 (1 page).
