Question: What makes a good citizen?

To be a “good citizen”, one would have to know his or her rights, and know his or her responsibilities. Rights are rules that anybody is allowed to do and will not get punished for it, and they give people their freedom. An example of a right is freedom of speech, this right allows a person to say anything they want without getting punished. Responsibility is what a person must do as a citizen. For example a citizen had the responsibility to follow every law. Another responsibility is to vote even though there is no law forcing anybody to vote. Citizens also have the right to vote as well as the responsibility. Once a citizen knows his or her rights they should be considered a “good citizen”.

Freedom of speech

The most effective form of government is dictatorship. This unlimited government is much more effective than other forms of government. For example congress can not stop the dictator from making decisions. If congress can stop the leader from making good decisions nothing will get done and the country can’t progress. Citizens also know what the dictator is like so they usually know what to expect. When people know what to expect they will be better prepared for changes and new rules. So, as it is easy to tell, other forms of government are not as effective as dictatorship, even if dictatorship is missing some parts of government like separation of power. Here is something to remember, even though dictatorship is effective it is not always the best in other ways.
