By establishing the Constitution of the
State of California
- in this content it is
People of the State of California expresses its
interest in form of
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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
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
which is in a full Power in this State.
