Q&A

A good citizen is a person who does their responsibilities and follows the legal and social laws such as staying informed or paying taxes. This is important because without these restraints it would just be anarchy and the government wouldn't run well. A good citizen also exercises his/her personal and political rights such as freedom of speech and free religion. These rights are important because it’s what makes a democracy a democracy. In conclusion, a good citizen respects others rights and takes care of their responsibilities as well.

What do you think is the most effective style of government and why? Representative democracy is the best type of government. Representative democracy is a form of government in which citizens vote on leaders and representatives to vote on people's rights and responsibilities. Also representative democracy is a form of limited government which gives citizens say in the government. Limits on government include separation of power this means no one person/group can get all the power and potentially change the government. What makes representative democracy so good is the limits on the government and that it is effective for larger populations.

One thing that brings EU countries together is the Schengen act. It drops borders of countries and makes for more of a regional feel, rather than separate countries. Another thing that brings them together is a trade bloc. A trade bloc means that countries promote each other's economies. This support makes countries feel closeor.There are also forces that work to tear the EU apart. The fact that there are over 20 languages spoken throughout the EU is one of them. The many languages makes communication within the EU a challenge. Another thing that pulls the EU apart is that Western Europe is much wealthier than Eastern Europe. They give more money to the EU and feel that not as much money should go to poorer countries. As you see, different forces bring together and tear apart supranational cooperation. Countries in the EU support each other's economy and feels like a region but has a lot of communication problems and different wealth distribution.
