This discussion will be open for the whole course, so check back frequently:1) Consider a modern way of looking at Feudalism and then post a comparison of that social system to the hierarchy of a modern corporation.

Please try to use an existing corporation or company and avoid just discussing a general example of any kind of company. Is Feudalism still alive because of this comparison? What does that mean for the bottom level of workers?Or2) Do you think the aspect of Courtly Love still exists in our popular culture today (media, movies, television shows, songs, etc.)? If so, please support your response with an example from the Medieval period (textbook or outside source) and if yes, provide an example from our modern world where you think this applies. If you feel it does not exist, please provide 2 examples from the Medieval period that show it is not in our modern world. NOTE: You must research and cite a source BEYOND your eText.Or3) Go to Physics of Stone Arches (or if it does not open see this video showing this exercise- and see if you can construct an arch for a Medieval Cathedral without it collapsing.
