Experiencing Private and public troubles

Analyze private and public troubles from your own experience. While you should talk about your own experiences, you also need to
think more broadly about the society you belong to.
1) As discussed in the class (chapter one in Ritzer, Page 17-18), explain in your own words what C. Wright Mills meant by the private and public troubles and
how are private troubles different from public issues?
2) Do you agree that private choices sometimes lead to, or are part of, public issues? Can you think of an example from your life or the life of a family
