What makes a good citizen?

To be a good citizen is voting for equal rights for everyone. And for everyone to have there freedom, so everyone can be fair and equal. Citizens could also stay informed on what's happening in there community so they know what's going on and if they can help there environment around them. People can have there own beliefs and present speechs about what they think is right or the best, but it's important that a good citizen is willing to lessen to everyone's idea or it might get kaotic. That's what makes a good citizen.

What is government and why is it necessary?

A government is the governing body of a nation, state, or community. It is necessary because if you do not have a government than citizens will not be able to get organized, and live their everyday life normally for example they might have to vote in the middle of work or have to volunteer to help the nation. Citizens would not be organized because without a government there is no rule of law. The rule of law is important to citizens because it keeps people safe. Rules of law protect people's rights and makes it so that even the leader has to follow the law, not just do whatever he/she wishes. Without a government it would be really hard for citizens have their opinions said and have leaders represent them. Citizens elect their own leaders using consent of the governed so that they can give permission to the government to rule them. They can either vote directly or vote for a representative. The representative makes decisions that they think would be good for the community. The government gives the power to organize and give people their responsibilities and rights. It lets the citizens have a say in what they do every day. It keeps them from living in anarchy. Government is very important for its citizens.

What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

(Citizens talking to each other)

There are centrifugal and centripetal forces working. A centrifugal force is diversity because one country might have more wealth than the other country. An example is that Western Europe has more money and doesn't want to give up their jobs to Eastern Europe because they don't have as much money and will work for less money. The EU wants the Western and Eastern Europe to have the same amount of money. a centripetal and centrifugal force is language and culture because Language can bring citizens together and they can communicate but if there are to many different languages than the citizens won't know how to travel to different areas and even do the simplest things like order food in restaurants. Culture can bring Citizens together because they can learn new ways of there friends religion. These are a few of the forces that work for and against supranational cooperation among nations.
