When Tip O'Neill said, 'All politics is local,' he was talking about the way political issues
are shaped by local interests. Defence policy, for example, logically calls for an overview of national-security needs, yet it is often dictated by employment levels in factories that happen to depend on defence contracts and are in the district of an influential congressman. In such cases, local interest debases the issue with a shortsighted and self-serving perspective. But there's another kind of local politics, and it works in a way that's almost completely opposite. For instance, the City Council of Irvine, California, recently passed legislation restricting the use of chlorofluorocarbons within the city limits. This legislation will cause hardships for local businesses and raise the cost of some consumer goods for local people, and these sacrifices will not be rewarded by any special environmental benefits to the citizens of Irvine.
