Political Science Hypothesis Testing

please Answer the following questions in less than one page.

Critical Thinking Questions:

Do you think that Montesquieu might have confused correlation with causation in his original hypothesis?

What else might cause the observed relationship between climate and form of government?

Is it proper to generalize about a country’s climate?  Many larger countries encompass mountains, deserts, jungles, and grasslands.  Most do not have “a” climate, but rather several climates.  How might Montesquieu have responded to this?

Learning Politics

Think about conversations around politics when you were in primary school (around age 10). What were some of the ways you learned about the political establishment through family members and friends? How were you politically socialized as a child? Use evidence (cite sources) to support your response from assigned readings or online lessons, and at least one outside scholarly source.
