Article I. Section 1. Source language content analysis
Article 1 adopted 1879. (Sec.1 - 32 added Nov. 5, 1974, by Proposition 7. Resolution Chapter 90, 1974.)
By establishing the Constitution of the State of California Sovereign - in this content it is People of the State of California expresses its Natural Law interest in form of Positive Law:

Preamble: We, the People of the State of California, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom, in order to secure and perpetuate its blessings, do establish this Constitution.

Section 1. All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights. Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy.

First sentence is very straightforward, clear to understand and has no room for different interpretation.

Second sentence, especially its final part: "and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy", - is not very clear and allow some different interpretation. So, lets concentrate on it.

101. It is essential not to allow "double interpretation" in juridical techniques and its instruments (tools), which have to guarantee equal (uniform) framing of each juridical text to convey authorís initial idea (message) to the text users in itís invariable, univocal meaning.

101. If reader of the document can find several (two and more) interpretations of the text, he/she has the right to choose the interpretation, which best serves his/her interest.

Other notes.

1. Lets analyze part of the phrase "pursuing and obtaining". It is clear this two word must be used only together, because:

a. Between this two words we have AND - one of the linking words (Coordinating and subordinating conjunctions and other parts of speech link ideas within and between sentences);

b. By sense "pursuing without obtaining" make "pursuing" endless and senseless. "Obtaining" in this context may exist only as the result of "pursuing". Because "obtaining" here certainly is not freebie or free gift of somebody;

c. Both words "pursuing and obtaining" show lasting act of the powerful "People of the State of California";

2. Word "safety, happiness, and privacy" were simply specialized, separated with commas. So, these words may be as all together, as each of them separately.

3. The most interesting thing is word "happiness". It certainly means readers have Right to be happy. Because "People of the State of California":

a. Made this Constitution first of all in their own interest and not in interest of anybody else;

b. Would not fool themselves by directing Readers of Constitution to the target, which Reader has no Right of. So, Readers' Right to be Happy is considered as existing one.
c. "Never yield their sovereignty to anybody, including any service provider, and even to any agencies which serve them, etc. [According to Bagley-Keene Open Meeting Act "The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies which serve them."]

d. Never allow any of authorized Agents to act against of Grantor interests.

So, let me remind to all wishy-washy - the People of the State of California are still Sovereign, which is in a full Power in this State.
