RBA Topic+Mindmap–FBI Corruption

In my RBA, I will be focusing in on the corruption seen during J. Edgar Hoover’s reign as FBI Director and investigating the contributing factors that led to the development of this phenomenon. Specifically, I will be exploring how the imbalances in the hierarchical power distribution and the skewed culture of secrecy rendered the FBI susceptible to corruption during highly politicized times.

One thought on “RBA Topic+Mindmap–FBI Corruption”

  1. Your topic not only seems extremely interesting, but also relevant to the modern day. You mindmap is broken down to a wide range of subtopics. Although there are many different ideas present, your map is organized and allows for new ideas to emerge. I would recommend potentially analyzing the opposite argument as a potential counterargument. The president does have some control over the FBI. Although the president can’t fire the director, if he/she asks for a resignation, the director will most likely step down. It would be interesting to research the corruption of the FBI as a result of actions by important figures outside the FBI.
