CAMELOT introduces students the interactions of contending and contentious groups and individuals whose values and goals range from radical to reactionary. It addresses such issues as equal opportunity, right to life, freedom of expression, affirmative action, property rights, gay rights, and more. Students quickly learn that competing interests and viewpoints - with their varying degrees of organization and cohesiveness - make political decision-making complex, time consuming, exciting, and often difficult to predict.
