Rebel Mystic: Toward a Theorization of the Aesthetic and Communicative Dimensions of Reggae and Dub
Unformatted Document Text:  24 or life issues. These groups’ political organizations, agendas, strategies, roles, values (including political culture and social change), preferences, and impact on the political process have been well documented by numerous scholars. Theories like behaviorism, pluralism, and rational choice have been used to describe and analyze these processes. I will, thus, provide only brief discussion about the role of the political process on the distribution of income and power. Groups like business, workers, and professionals have strong organizations formed to attain and maintain the economic and political benefits of their members. While the role of trade unions may be to promote causes like the minimum wage, unemployment benefits, or several employee-employer related issues, business groups may be interested in issues like lower corporate tax rates, regulation, or deregulation.
