This is what a good citizen looks like.
A good citizen obeys laws, have responsibilities, and respect the rights of them and other citizens. A good citizen obeys laws. They respect laws that authorities pass. They obey the laws that are necessary to keep their community and country safe. A good citizen has responsibilities. They pay taxes, register to vote, and get an education. A good citizen respects the rights of them and other citizens. They respect freedom of speech or religion. The right to vote or right to assemble. They respect the right to equal protection under the law. A good citizen would help the economy and environment to make their country better.
Government is very important because without it there would be no order, no ruler, and no protection or rights. Order is very important to keep a country running. If there are no laws, you could do anything you want and have anybody do anything against you. Laws are important to control the country. They help the way we live and protect us. From those who break them. For example the U.S. is a very civilized country. They have a rule of law which states that everybody has to follow the law even the rulers. If there is no government, there is no ruler. The ruler makes decisions that makes living better for citizens. There are big responsibilities that need a ruler. A decision for war is a very serious and hard decision. For example Somalia in some parts is in anarchy. They have no ruler to control the people. There are no rights without a ruler. A leader is needed to rule the country to make decisions and to protect the country. From these examples it is clear that government is a necessity for a country and its citizens.
Many forces work for and against supranational cooperation such as centripetal and centrifugal forces.Centripetal and Centrifugal are both parts of economic structure. Trade blocs and tariffs increase unity by stopping taxes on traveling items over borders with no barriers and joining a common market so that citizens have bigger varieties. But other things that break apart this unity is how money should be spent. The western side of Europe is very wealthy opposing the eastern side which is more poor. The EU is forcing the western citizens to pay taxes that are used on the eastern side to build places to work and live. These rich people are afraid of losing jobs to these poorer people. Political cooperations in the EU have both centripetal and centrifugal forces. A centripetal force is that the EU government focuses on environmental issues and transportation. They also try to make a citizen of any country is a citizen of all of Europe. This works because every EU member can live anywhere in the EU and participate in the EU representatives there. There are also centrifugal forces pulling apart their political cooperation. When a country joins the EU is has to give up some power like making independent decisions. Another one is that the EU is growing by members. It keeps gaining more and more members. This is a problem because there are many cultural which makes many points of view. This is very hard to cooperate. There are many forces that attract and pull on the cultural cooperation in the EU. a force that attracts is that the EU promotes a European culture. They try and make people think that everyone in Europe has the same culture of celebrating EU day, singing the EU anthem in front of the EU flag. The EU has a few cities host a big concert each year and shows the culture of that city. The EU has done a great job of making everybody feel like they are united except for a few centrifugal forces. Many languages are still spoken in Europe and it's hard to communicate. Every thing on the news has to be translated over 20 different languages. Another pulling force is that there is rivalry between countries. Some countries still have tensions with other countries. In conclusion over Economic, Political, and Cultural cooperations the EU has both centripetal and centrifugal forces but still has very good unity.
