What does it mean to be a good citizen ?

There are a lot of ways that you can be a good citizen . First , let's talk about the responsibilities of being a citizen . One of those responsibilities is to make sure you stay informed , maybe by watching the news , or reading the newspaper once in a while . Another responsibility you have to make sure you keep in mind , is to pay your taxes ! Now , let's talk about the rights of a good citizen . Every citizen of the U.S. has the right to vote , no matter what . A right that every U.S. citizen has , is the freedom of speech . This might not be the most information .... Well , I hope it's enough !

What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

There are two forces that work for and go against the EU. They are called the centripetal and centrifugal forces.

An example of a centrifugal force is the use of the Euro. Western Europe is wealthier and Eastern Europe is poorer. The EU spends a lot of money on the Eastern side of Europe and the Western side is not happy with this.

An example of a centripetal force is the trade bloc. It “opens” the borders to other countries so that people can travel through freely to find jobs and deliver goods.

In conclusion , the centrifugal and centripetal forces keep the EU from being a perfect Supranational cooperation .
