#EngTrivia Types of Government

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

And thank you for your participation today, Fellas! Don’t forget to visit our website englishtips4u.com. See you! :D
