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.

How do people adapt to living in a desert region? People adapt to desert regions in multiple ways and have used different strategies.

how might having a valuable resource affect a region? Having a valuable resource can have different affects on a region. One negative affect is that other countries might want that resource and could threaten or attack a country. Crude oil is a valuable resource that countries would want to have and try to get. ntries in SW Asia would want to get crude oil because they can sell it and make lots of money and become more powerful. Iraq tried to steal Kuwait's crude oil and started a war.

Oil it is a very valuable resource it can be found under tectonic plates and is hard to get without electric machines. Also, because it is a Non-renewable resource regions tend to want to keep it for their needs. Since oil is so valuable some countries depend on each other and need cooperate to make sure everyone benefits from the profits of selling oil. They did this by creating an organization to help manage the oil . OPEC is an organization that keeps oil distributed evenly among the countries. OPEC it keeps oil prices steady and regulates how much oil countries will sell. This prevents sometimes the regions from getting into fights. Oil has greatly affected the region and the people of SW Asia.
