Assignment 1: Harvey 1. Based on its past on being a port city, the fourth largest metropolis and a minority- majority city, what political subculture would you expect to dominate in Houston? What are the reasons behind such political subculture(s)? I think the political subcultures in Houston would probably be Individualism. That’s what I believe it is that dominates more in Houston. The reason behind the decision is because Houston depends on its market and as well having its government being limited. They don’t want the government to be in fully control, thus making the government limited, so they can have more freedom for the citizens. 2. Based on the reading, “Empty Places,” why do you think zoning legislation has been neglected in Houston and in Texas? Zoning was neglected because it stated, “zoning smacks of telling people what to do with their property.” (Gail Collins, 34). Basically, saying that they don’t want people telling them what to do to their land, thus they rather do what they want with the property they own not the other way
