What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations? Centrifugal and centripetal are both a part of the supranational government of the EU. A centripetal force is bringing them together and a centrifugal separating them a part. One way that the EU is getting pulled together or also called a centripetal force is that there are borders among countries allowing the citizens of the EU to easily cross from country to country with having to use a passport to get through. Another way a centripetal force is happening in the EU is that they all share the same flag along with an anthem. A centrifugal force is that Euros arertn't used in all of the countries which pulls them apart. Another centrifugal force is that the EU speaks 20 different languages which makes it hard to communicate. Those are the forces that work for and against the EU.

Democracy is most effective because there is limited government which means that separation of power is used so that the government doesn't have all the power over the citizens. Since separation of power is used it is harder for the leader to gain control over the citizens and country. The citizens vote in elections or give their Consent of governed or their permission to be lead by this leader. While the government has power they also responsibilities just like the citizens. Democracy is the most effective style of government because there are limits on the government giving the citizens more freedom in the country.

What does it mean to be a good citizen? To be a good citizen you have a responsibility to pay taxes and follow the city's law and social laws. A citizen always has a freedom of speech at anytime. A citizen can vote once old enough and has to vote in order for a country to have a president. Sometimes citizens have to tolerance consequences that he or she doesn't like or agree to do if they broke a law. (consequences can vary). Being a citizen of the USA is awesome, but you have to follow the rights,laws and responsibilities.
