1.Keep a journal over the next two days noting all the “exercises of power” you come across, both at the micro and macro level. These can include, for
example, a meter maid writing out a ticket, a bouncer throwing someone out of a bar, or a parent punishing a child.
As you record each example, note the following: Who or what is exercising the power on whom? How is the power being exerted? Is the exertion of that power legitimate or illegitimate? If legitimate, on what authority? If illegitimate, circumventing what authority? Can you discern any patterns in the examples that suggest which groups in America typically get to exert power and which groups in America typically have power exerted on them? Based on your observations, how do power relationships vary, if at all, between the two levels?
