Describe and discuss the social movements that have impressed you and made an impact on your consciousness. For example, those of us who lived through the 1980s will recall, vividly, the drug PSA that showed a frying egg with the slogan “This is your brain on drugs.”
Do you believe that memorable campaigns can also be successful campaigns? What are some organizations that have succeeded in conveying their message meaningfully? What organizations’ campaigns have been unintentionally humorous?
Some social movements, such as the punk, Goth, and emo subcultures, are also considered fads and fashions. Do you know the ideologies behind these movements? Or are you only familiar with their fashions? What are your interpretations of these social movements?
