Revised paragraph:

Being a good citizen means that you have responsibilities, and rights, and to obey the laws. A responsibility that you would have is to not litter on the ground or leave trash somewhere, to pay your taxes, protect public safety. Some rights that you have are, you have the right to vote, the right to own property, right to equal protection under the law. Some laws that you would need to obey to be a good citizen would be to not assault or kill a person, to stop at red lights and stop signs, and to not steal from stores or peoples home.

Someone putting something in the trash instead of on the ground.

What is government, and why is it necessary? Government is the governing body of a nation, state, or community. Government is necessary because, it makes the laws so people are safe or, rule of law, they give also give people rights, and deals with other countries. They make laws so people are safe, so people follow the rule of law to stay safe. One law the government has made is public accommodations, when people shall be entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, and privileges, advantages. The government also gives people rights and they deal with other countries. Some rights the government gives is the right to vote, the right to assemble, and the right to equal protection under the law. Some benefits the government has with dealing with other countries is that they get to trading with them. For example they have some pretty good trading manufactures with China, like they can get some stuff for really cheap. These are some of the reasons why I think government is necessary.

Someone making a trade with another person.

What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

Forces that work for and against the supranational cooperation among nations are the centrifugal forces and the centripetal forces. The creation of common markets have been an important force that unites the EU. Another thing that unites the EU is, the making of the common currency which is called euro. EU meme era have also created powerful trade blocs that work to create jobs, develop resources, and make improvements that encourage trade. Hundreds of millions of consumers live in the EU trade bloc. Outside nations are eager to do business with the EU. The EU has spent large amounts of money to upgrade highways. It also helped some farmers modernize their operation. The size of the market has made the EU trade bloc an important force in the global economy. The EU encourages political cooperation among its members. The EU government doesn't replace any of the government of its nation, instead it's a supranational government. That is, it works above the government of the EU countries. The EU government works in 2 ways. 1) the government brings its members together to work on issues they all share. 2) the EU encourages Europeans to think of themselves as citizens of Europe, while on top of their citizenship in their home countries. The government helps unite Europe by speaking for all of its members with one voice. By working together, the EU members have more power in world affairs than any other country in Europe, would have by itself. Since the EU was formed it has produced a common European cultural identity. As that is going on the EU recognizes the diversity of the members. A centripetal force is a common cultural identity. The EU’s flag has 12 stars with a dark blue background, they even adopted their own anthem. The choice was Ode to Joy by the German composer Ludwig van Beethoven. Every year on May 9th they celebrate Europe day. The EU supports many cultural programs, across Europe. The euro and the EU passport make it easy to travel across Europe. There are about 20 languages spoken in the EU. Those are some forces that work for and against supranational cooperation among nations.
