CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION TO CALIFORNIA POLITICS
INTRODUCTION
“It's 90 degrees in November, the full glory and perennial curse of Southern California on fierce display. Devil winds, hill-hopping infernos, smoked mansions, torched trailers, barren freeways, and brilliant sunsets lingering in low-hanging canopies of burnt dreams. Are we all crazy? Don't live here, says the wind, the trembling earth, the parched land whose natural inclination is to explode in flame every year about now. But we do. Don't build near the kindling, say the voices of common sense. But we do, for all the wrong reasons and all the known glories. Our winter snowfall is flakes of ash and flame retardant falling on bougainvillea, so it could be worse. The Earth shakes. The fires rage. The population expands. And the sunsets are brilliant, especially this time of year.”
-Steve Lopez, columnist for the Los Angeles Times November 17, 2008 “Everyone is welcome. As you know, I'm an immigrant. I came over here as an immigrant. What gave me the opportunities, what made me be able to be here today, is the open arms of Americans. I have been received. I have been adopted to America. I have gotten all the opportunities because of America. I have seen first hand, coming over here, with empty pockets, but full of dreams, full of desire, full of will, to succeed. But with the opportunities that I had available, I could make it. And that's what I want everyone to be able to do. This is why we have to get back and bring California back where it once was.”
– Arnold Schwarzenegger, upon announcing his intention to run for governor of California in 2003

The state of California has been the pace-setter for political, cultural, and technological development to the nation, where dreams begin and are realized. California has a rich political history, a remarkably diverse population, and an exciting…...

Greek Polis

...so complex to grasp what one is reading and or studying. This is no different for the ancient Greek word “polis” as we define as “city-state.”(Nagel pg 1) However does this simple definition fully define the true meaning of a polis? With city being portrayed as a large socialeconomically diverse urban center and with state suggesting a formal government, we are lead to wonder if these two words blended together begin to explain what a polis really is. It is never easy to answer the question “What is an ancient Greek polis?” because everyone had their own answer to the question. For instance Aristotle says a polis was a community of self-governing citizens.(Nagel pg 1) Aristotle was said to be the most important ancient analysis of the polis system, his most famous quote being “Man is a polis animal.” (Nagel pg 1) Aristotle tells us that politeia, today’s constitution, is not just a set of laws but cultural, economical, and social way of life. (Nagel pg 9)Homer author of the Iliad and Odyssey feels a polis is formed when villages in a community unite and become large enough to be self-sufficient.(Nagel pg 8) Herodotus of The Histories of Herodotus saw polesis as a body of citizens sufficiently numerous for Securing a self-sufficient existence. As we can see that throughout time we have many authors who each carry a different point of view on how to properly view a polis of Ancient Greece. Every author has an idea and facts to back this idea up which makes it impossible to......

...Research Paper English 102 University Maryland University College   All character in literature face conflicts whether they are external or internal, for these three short stories there are multiple forms of conflict that the characters will face that can alter the plot or theme of the story.   In the first story The Gift of the Magi the main character is struggling with internal conflicts about how to get her husband a gift for Christmas. The couple only made twenty dollars a week and Della the wife only had less than two dollars to buy her husband’s gift. Della had already checked and all the gifts she would want to get for him were more than what she had. This was a poor family and the only two things they had in the world they were proud of was “The James Dillingham Young's were very proud of two things which they owned. One thing was Jim’s gold watch. It had once belonged to his father. And, long ago, it had belonged to his father’s father. The other thing was Della’s hair. If a queen had lived in the rooms near theirs, Della would have washed and dried her hair where the queen could see it. Della knew her hair was more beautiful than any queen’s jewels and gifts.” (Henrey, O). The conflict for Della was to either cut and get rid of her prized possession or to not give her loving husband a gift for Christmas. Della thought hard about her decision but in the end she chose to do something kind for her husband.   If Della wouldn’t have......

...Humanities Today Paper Marlon Chambers HUM/102 Jan 22, 2015 Nancy Erickson Humanities Today Paper In this paper, I will discuss humanities. I will differentiate between the humanities and other modes of human inquiry and expression. I shall list types of humanities and explain why each one gives reflects current developments in politics, socioeconomics, and technology. Colorado State University defines humanities as, “The branches of learning (such as philosophy or languages) that investigate human constructs and concerns, as opposed to natural processes. The humanities, such as classical and modern languages, literature, history, and philosophy, have the overall goal of the exploration and explanation of human experience.” Art has long been a means of expressing social or political ideas. Anselm Kiefer took art and brought it to an entirely new level by using his art to bring attention to national identity and collective memory. In the process his art began evolving to include occult symbolism, theology, and mysticism. All of his work shares a common theme of the trauma experienced by entire societies and the continual rebirth and renewal in life. Music defines periods of history as well as generations. It evolves with societies/cultures and tends to give people their identity. Music has a strong connection through celebration, remembrance, expression of emotions, and ministering to others. It allows the human race to connect......

The reason I have chosen this country is because I plan on vacationing here over summer break. My significant other and I have been trying to find different places to vacation and this project was a perfect opportunity for me to explore one of our favorite options. The beautiful island of the Dominican Republic is positioned in the Caribbean Sea, and it is a portion of the West Indies. Its region equals that of Vermont and New Hampshire combined. The Dominican Republic shares the land with Haiti and the whole island is known as Hispaniola. The Dominican Republic lies on the east side of the island and Haiti is on the west. Hispaniola was the name given when Christopher Columbus discovered it when he revealed it on his formerly voyage in 1492. The establishing of this island was very significant to European settlers and it played a main part in the economic growth that Europe had when the new world was discovered. The cultivation that is part of this island has help establish an economic structure that has led the Dominican Republic become what it has today. The population of the Dominican Republic today is around 10.5 million. The nationality of the people living in this country are Dominicans.

Aristotle's Polis

...ARISTOTLE'S POLIS: NATURE, HAPPINESS, AND FREEDOh1 Ideologists of all stripes seem to have difficulty dealing with t h e foundations of what is loosely called the ""Western tradition," t h a t is, the body of knowledge that has come down to us from Athens a n d Jerusalem. Of course, these days Jerusalem is simply ignored. T h e classical tradition, however, must be dealt with. Yet it is frequently so transfigured that what emerges is what the ideologist wishes u s t o see, rather than what is these. The most ambitious attempt at this sort of thing by a 'Yiberal" ideologist is Eric A. Havelock's T h e Liberal Temper in Greek Politics.' More recently and on a smaller scale, Fred Miller has, in the pages of this journal, interpreted one aspect of the classical tradition from the standpoint of "~ibertarianY' political theory, in his essay "The State and the Community in Aristotle's Polieics. "' This curious attempt to defend the "libertarianism9' of Lykophron and Mippodamus3 against Aristotle's '6ppaternalism9'is a daring, if ill-conceived, enterprise. In Miller's presentation, Aristotle seems t o emerge as a villain who misunderstand the enlightened political thought of the Greek "libertarians" and, we are to infer, derails subsequent political thought in the name of "'paternalism." Fundamental to Miller's reading of the Politics is the idea t h a t there is a distinction between ""cmmunity" and "'state" that Aristotle confuses in his use of golis. He argues......

...Trident University David Jones Module 2 SLP Assignment ENG 102 Dr. Mike Mack February 9, 2015 Our society today functions on the technology that exist in our world today; our children are constantly around technology which could have a lasting effect on them. Not too long ago children used to play outside and be active, nowadays children are staying at home in order to be on-line or play video games. Today’s children have a higher exposure to technology than any previous generation; technology will continue to advance in the future but at what cost? Will our children be able to function without it? Technology in the 21st century has impacted our children deeply; the use of technology has skyrocketed over the past few years, our children today encounter and utilize technology constantly at home and at school. Media devices like video games, television, computers, and cell phones play a major role in the development of 21st century child. Compared with the MP3 players, and Palm Pilots of the 1990s, the technology today has truly advanced, causing many people to become dependent on media-related devices. In my opinion it is arguably impossible to imagine kids today living their daily lives without any consumption of technology; technology is everywhere causing our children to have access via their cell phones, at home, or at school. Access to technology has hurt the modern day child as they depend on it for everything; many of our children cling to social......

Hy 102

...Bryan Savage HY 102-016 Essay #1 The Age of Enlightenment refers to the sprawling intellectual, philosophical, cultural and social movement that spread through England, France, Germany, and other parts of Europe during the 18th century. The Enlightenment is often thought of as a time of change but also of tradition. Toward the middle of the eighteenth century, Enlightenment thinkers began to apply the ideas of Bacon, Locke, and Newton, to their newfound perspective of life. Locke argued that human nature was mutable and that knowledge was gained through accumulated experience rather than by accessing some sort of outside truth. Newton's calculus and optical theories provided the powerful Enlightenment metaphors for precisely measured change and illumination. Scientific rationalism, exemplified by the scientific method, was the hallmark of everything related to the Enlightenment. Near the end of the Renaissance, thinkers believed that the advances of science and industry foreshowed a new age of egalitarianism and progress for humankind. The intellectuals, also known as the philosophes, hoped they could create a new society in the belief that education could create better human beings and a better human society. Such philosophes as Montesquieu, Voltaire, Diderot, Hume, Quesnay, Smith, Beccaria, Condorcet, and Rousseau attacked traditional religion as the enemy, advocated religious toleration and freedom of thought creating a new science of man. In doing so, the......
