What makes a good citizen?

A good citizen would have to obey the law. To obey the law you would have to go to jury duties, the reason for this is that if someone is in court, they can call people to do jury duty, but if you refuse it is breaking the law. You would also have to stop at traffic lights, because if you did not that would also be breaking the law. The government would move more faster if you followed the law. Therefore, a good citizen would have to be orderly and safe to the society.

What is governement and why is it necessary?

Government is what keeps a society going and is necessary because it keeps us orderly and safe. There are many types of governments, some let the citizens participate in regular elections, and others have one person in control. For example, in Athens Greece, they had a government called direct democracy which makes the citizens participate in elections for everyday laws. Also, in North Korea they have a government called dictatorship, this government makes it so that one person has control of the everyday lives of the citizens. A government itself things in order at some degree, but you can change the order and safety by having a constitution. In Peru there was once a dictator that took control of the loves of the citizens, he helped the country with terrorists but destroyed the constitution. When he did this Peru was not as orderly as it used to be. In conclusion, a government is what keeps a society going, and is necessary so that there is no anarchy.

What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

There are many forces present in the EU that work for and against supranational cooperation. One centripetal force working for the supranational cooperation is the Euro, this is because it makes travel and trade easier. For example, if you wanted to move from Spain to Germany, you could still use the same currency in the two different countries. One centrifugal force that's against supranational cooperation is language, this is because there are many different languages and it is harder to communicate. For example if you lived in Greece and went to Italy for work, you would have to get used to the totally different language being spoken there. Centripetal and centrifugal forces are both at work in the supranational cooperation of the EU.
