Part I: Unit 5 Application Questions [Worth 5 Pts.]
1. Your friend Fred is getting married and has been asked to set up the seating chart for the reception. The problem that Fred has is that his family is very political and tends to frequently get into arguments about their politics. He wants to avoid this at his reception. The problem that Fred has is that his education from Drunken State University did not prepare him to understand the differences between ideologies. He calls you for help. He has a table for each ideology as well as others for normal people who don’t feel the need to share their politics every time they are around others.
a. Fred’s Aunt Sally may need a table to herself. She believes that mankind is flawed because of racial impurities in society. Furthermore, she believes that a strong government should convert the country into a neat and tidy state and that we should eliminate or deport those who don’t dress, act, or talk in ways that fit the prescribed norms established by the government. What do you think Aunt Sally’s Political ideology is? Continued>>>>>>>>>>
b. Fred’s Uncle Billy is not happy with our government either. He thinks that rich fat cats should be taxed a much higher rate to help pay for social programs for the working class. As a fervent Labor Union supporter, Uncle Billy thinks that many large corporations should be taken over by the government and the profits shared among everyone in the population. It’s not that Uncle Billy is against people accumulating wealth, it’s just that he thinks that rich people are not paying near their fair share. What do you think Uncle Billy’s Political ideology is?
c. Fred’s Aunt Mary thinks our government should be smaller, much smaller. She wants the national government to basically stop doing everything its doing except for providing a military and a police force. She is okay with some local governments paying for schools and roads, but beyond that she thinks things like progressive taxes are like theft. What do you think Aunt Mary’s Political ideology is?
d. Fred’s Uncle Manny thinks that we need to get back to the basics. He thinks we have gotten too far away from our Christian heritage. He also has problems with people on welfare because he thinks that government programs only enable poverty further because poverty is about poor personal decisions in his mind. What do you think Uncle Manny’s Political ideology is?
e. Fred’s Aunt Linda is a different story. She wants government to be much more involved in stopping the causes of poverty. She wants government to invest much more money in the poor to prevent poverty from perpetuating in further generations. This can be financed through higher taxes on the wealthy. Linda is a CEO of a corporation and has no problem with the free market, she just does not want to see so many others left behind.
f. Fred’s Uncle Rico is a hoot. He basically thinks that the best way to deal with issues like poverty is to get rid of all private property all together. Government should own and control everything. Yes, some people will rebel, but if you want to make an omelet, you’ve got to crack a few eggs. He thinks in the long run, a government without religion, private property and greed will lead to everyone being much better off. What do you think Uncle Rico’s political ideology is?
g. Fred’s Aunt Debbie believes that our Christian values are being assaulted and that we need to get back to the basics. She wants government to strongly support prayer in school and good wholesome Christian values in the laws that it makes. She also things that government should be doing more about poverty and should raise the taxes on the wealthy to help pay for programs to help the poor. She believes that poverty is a cyclical problem and that government is one of the only entities big enough to stop the suffering. What do you think Aunt Debbie’s Political ideology is?
2. The country of the Democratic Congo is very rich in natural resources yet its people live in abject poverty. The ruling elites can get away with murder while the peasants are punished severely for even small infractions of the law. Unrest is pervasive and foreign investment is non-existent. The absence of what concept from the class might describe the dysfunction that occurs in the Democratic Congo.

Part II: Unit 5 Supplemental Assignment: Essay # 2 [Worth 25 Pts.]
Prompt: There are a wide range of political ideologies throughout the United States and the world. Please identify which ideology you most closely subscribe to and justify your response. Be sure to explain what you see as the role of government in a citizen’s life. This question is NOT asking for your party affiliation (i.e. Republican, Democrat), rather it is asking you to explain your political ideology (example: Authoritarian, Communist, Fascist, Socialist, Liberal, Statist, Moderate, Conservative, Libertarian, or Anarchist). Your essay should cite at least 2 sources, be in properly cited (use MLA Citation Style) and be grammatically sound. Major deductions will result for those who do not follow directions.
The best essays are usually 5-6 paragraphs. They usually contain an introductory & closing paragraph as well as 3-5 paragraphs about the areas that define their ideology. Specifically, please address these four areas: government control over personal/moral decisions, government control over business, industry, and finance, the redistribution of wealth from the rich to the poor, and the government’s role in protecting communal resources (Clean air, fisheries, oceans, global warming, etc). This is not an assignment where you can just spill your guts about your opinion, you need to approach your argument from a position of knowledge and understanding. Make sure to cite some source material to strengthen your argument.
Only the best essays will earn an “A”. Use of the CTX Writing Center is STRONGLY RECCOMENDED. If you do use the CTX Writing Center, please note that at the bottom of your paper so you can receive special consideration for an A on the paper. Since this is the last assignment of the class, it cannot be accepted late.

A sample of a well written essays on this topic is provided below:
In the past few years, my interest in government and politics has grown immensely. This quick spark of curiosity for government came to me as I opened my first paycheck at the age of sixteen. Until that point in my life, I only appreciated our government for things in our society such as public schooling, police forces, roadways, and so on. Suddenly I had a new point of view towards the functionalities of the American Government and the huge impact it has on our country’s society. Expecting my check to be much more than it was, I asked my boss (my dad), “Why did you take so much money out of my check? I didn’t sign of for all of this crap!” He laughed and said, “I was waiting on to hear that!” From that point on, I wanted to know where every single dollar of mine was going and why.
After years of Government, Economics, and Political Science classes, the “understanding” I was longing for began to come about. Learning about the different ideologies has helped me to categorize myself into one. Because I believe in representing some of the ideas of almost each of the political philosophies, I consider myself a political moderate. A political moderate is defined on Jacob Queen’s website as, “. someone who does not hold views on the far edges of the political spectrum.”(Queen). I categorize myself as such because I am far from an Anarchist yet far from a Totalitarian, putting me between a rock and a hard place, if you will. Practicing moderate political views is something I do because I find myself agreeing with certain ideas from all parties.
On one end of the political spectrum of ideologies you have the socialists. From a socialistic point of view, all the people in a society should be treated and provided with equal opportunities and lifestyles on behalf of their government. Government should ensure that every member of its society is well taken care of and provided for equally. Sure this may sound ideal but this concept would fail a society in a heartbeat. Without the desire for “bigger and better”, people lose work ethic. It is the end-of-the-day incentive that truly drives man to work. As a socialist, one would also agree on things such as the government providing its people with equal health benefits. Again, this sounds like a dreamy situation but too many people would ask themselves why they were working harder than the next guy for the same benefits. On the other hand, I agree with socialists when it comes to their idea of self-management. Social security gives a man a sense of self-management. After reading about social security on the official Social Security Administration website, I have came up with a summary of the social security system; No matter what, a percentage of everyone’s pay is deducted and (supposedly) deposited into a government-mandated account. Upon retirement age, one would draw a fixed amount of money every month that would be based upon their previous income (SSA). This preserves somewhat of a monetary security for the retired also providing incentive to work.
On the other end of the spectrum, you have conservatives and anarchists. In his website article, these ideologies are summed up by John Filiss as political entities that believe in little to no government. These are people who believe that bad decisions make for a bad lifestyle and that if you are living a hard life, it is because you made the wrong choices (Filiss). Nearly opposite of a socialist, a conservative believes that his/her money shall remain theirs and the amount that they are taxed should not be based on their income or assets. This is something that I believe in because I feel that taxing the rich at a higher amount in order to provide for the poor, again, gives the poor less incentive to work. I believe that too many people rely on the government to provide them with transportation, food, housing, schooling (including college), and even clothes. I have witnessed many people living off of the government (which is 100% tax payer’s money) when they are perfectly capable of getting a job. According to a web article by Edwards and Chris, the government loses around a sickening 100 billion dollars to people abusing government-aid and also to tax-evaders (Edwards). In the end, being a political moderate allows me to understand all political ideologies and it also prevents me from doing any bias thinking.

We investigate whether the industrial cluster policy has been successful or not, suggest policy prescriptions, and propose a way to prioritize policy measures. Our flowchart approach leads to the following three policy prescriptions: (1) Malaysian firms should establish sites for exporting compact cars with automatic transmissions; (2) actors in the public, semi-public and private sector should work to upgrade skilled labor; and (3) the central government should promote liberalization and deregulation to attract foreign firms into the supporting industries.

...Green computing 1 Green computing Green computing, green IT or ICT Sustainability, refers to environmentally sustainable computing or IT. In the article Harnessing Green IT: Principles and Practices, San Murugesan defines the field of green computing as "the study and practice of designing, manufacturing, using, and disposing of computers, servers, and associated subsystems—such as monitors, printers, storage devices, and networking and communications systems — efficiently and effectively with minimal or no impact on the environment."[1] The goals of green computing are similar to green chemistry; reduce the use of hazardous materials, maximize energy efficiency during the product's lifetime, and promote the recyclability or biodegradability of defunct products and factory waste. Many corporate IT department have Green Computing initiatives to reduce the environmental impacts of their IT operations.[2] Research continues into key areas such as making the use of computers as energy-efficient as possible, and designing algorithms and systems for efficiency-related computer technologies. Origins In 1992, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency launched Energy Star, a voluntary labeling program that is designed to promote and recognize energy-efficiency in monitors, climate control equipment, and other technologies. This resulted in the widespread adoption of sleep mode among consumer electronics. Concurrently, the Swedish organization TCO Development launched the TCO...
