Different Types of Government

Government~ the governing body of a nation, state, or community

Anarchy- a state of disorder due to absence or nonrecognition of authority.

In an anarchy, majority rules. There is a freedom of religion, but it is a government that is in some sort of disaster because of the lack of a leader.

Communism-a political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.

Communism is an efficient distribution of resources, equality, the establishment of stronger communities, every citizen has a job, internally stable economic system, with no competition. Communism is also a government in which a central state authority holds all means of production, there is ever changing principals, there is no individual freedom, they rely on violence and terror, workers are treated like machines.

Democracy- a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.

Democracy is majority rule. It is a faster process for the system, there is a power of voting, people's rights, and self empowerment for people. But there is also a negligence in voting.

Dictatorship- government by a ruler with total power over a country, typically one who has obtained power by force

A dictatorship is beneficial in some times because one person makes all of the decisions for the whole country. But with the ability to make all of the decisions, dictators generally abuse their power.

Monarchy-a form of government with a sovereign head of state, especially a king, queen, or emperor.

In a Monarchy, the law process is much simpler, their army is very strong, and it is a faster process for the system. However, a bad leader can cripple a nation, dependency on the leader, it is difficult to change internally, and there is a higher chance of rebellion.

Oligarchy-a small group of people having control of a country, organization, or institution

In an Oligarchy, there is a small legislature and it is governed by a few powerful people. Individualism, self empowerment for people, voting for everything that matters are some pros to an oligarchy. The complete control with the wealthy decisions made by a small group, racism, and being a slow process for the system are some of the cons to an oligarchy.

Republic-a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.

There are elected representatives, individualism, and a power of voting. There is a decisive governmental action difficult, long law making process, possibility of bad voting for representatives.

Socialism-a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

There is an absence of business fluctuations, absence of monopolistic practices, better welfare, economic growth, and greater efficiency. There is also an artificial system, no individual freedom, no economic freedom, no political freedom, red-tapism, and inefficiency.
