Analyze the article from a functionalist perspective. Think about the assumptions of functionalism and the social functions of the main ideas of the article. (Hint: If your article addresses an issue that has been around for generations, assume that it serves a function. If your article addresses a short-term issue such as a natural disaster, think in terms of disfunction and what it will take for the society to restore stability) *
Your answer

Your answer
