What’s jiggly and kids (and I) love it? Jell-o, Fellas! How are things going?
I was involved in a discussion about politics, constitutions, and governments. It was overwhelming for me.
But it’s always fun to discuss new topics, isn’t it? That’s why today we will do Politics 101: #EngTrivia Types of Government.
I invite you to actively join our session today, since I’m not an expert on this subject and might need some help. :”) #EngTrivia
First off, a rather fundamental question: why do we need the government? #EngTrivia
A condition of a state without governmental authority is called anarchy. It is attributed with chaos and lawlessness. #EngTrivia
Although closely related to chaos and violence, anarchy/anarchism isn’t synonymous to those words. #EngTrivia
Anarchy is usually a temporary state. Sooner or later, people will need leader/s to preserve order and authority. #EngTrivia
Next up, we have dictatorship. No country leader will ever admit of implementing dictatorship in their country. #EngTrivia
Yes, dictatorship is more of a perceived type of government than an actual type of government with written constitution. #EngTrivia
The dictator can be a ruler, a political faction, or simply an entity in which the power is absolute, unrestricted by law and constitution.
PopQuiz: How do we differentiate dictatorship, authoritarian, and totalitarian? I will retweet the correct answer!
Next, we have democracy. A lot of countries use or adopt this type of government since it’s based on common people’s power. #EngTrivia
In democracy, the supreme power is retained by the people. You remember “from the people, by the people, for the people.” #EngTrivia
Unfortunately, people aren’t uniform. Pure democracy is typically a flawed system where minority is overridden. #EngTrivia
And then, democracy’s brother is born. His name is Republic. What’s so different between the two? #EngTrivia
Republic is briefly explained as a form of representative democracy that has a written constitution to protect the minority. #EngTrivia
This constitution consists of unalienable rights that protect the minority from being completely unrepresented. #EngTrivia
Here’s a brief example of how the two differs: #EngTrivia
In a classroom of 40 students, 30 want to move the classroom to the field while the other 10 want to stay. #EngTrivia
In pure democracy, the class is then moved without further discussion. #EngTrivia
While in republic system, these 10 people are still considered as a part of the classroom, therefore their voice must be heard.
How the decision is made is then discussed further until they achieve a satisfying agreement. #EngTrivia
I’m sorry for the oversimplified example but I hope you get the general idea. #EngTrivia
Fellas, I need your opinion. Do you want to continue this discussion next week or end it as it is? #EngTrivia
We will discuss monarch, oligarch, presidential, parliamentary, etc. if we decide to continue this session. #EngTrivia
Or we will talk about something entirely different next week if you decide to end this session. #EngTrivia
And the decision is…we will do an entirely different session next week. Thank you for your votes, Fellas! :D
