What is the difference between limited and unlimited forms of government?
What is the difference between limited and unlimited forms of government? The difference between limited and unlimited forms of government is the amount of power the government has in each form.In a limited government, the government doesn’t have too much power and respects everyone’s rights. Things that make a limited government is for them to have separation power, rights of the minority, the rule of law, a Constitution and to have consent of the governed. One example of a limited government is the government of the USA. Like rule of law says that even the government have to follow the laws. Nobody is above the law. In an unlimited government, the government has most of the power and doesn’t always respect everyone’s rights.In an unlimited government, one of the five rules used to make sure that government doesn't have too much power is missing. So that means that the government has as much power as they like. Usually, an autocracy is an unlimited government because people like control and power and there is only one person in control. One example of an unlimited government is when Hitler ruled Germany, he had complete control over Germany. Like if they didn't have the rule of law, then the government could do whatever they wanted to because there is no law that they have to follow. So the difference between a limited and unlimited forms of government is the amount of power, control and limits they have.
What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?
Centripetal and Centrifugal Forces
There are multiple forces that work for and against supranational corporations like the EU.Some forces that work for the EU are the EU flag, EU anthem, etc. Other centripetal forces is the increased travel, the trade bloc and the common market. The EU flag, anthem and the holiday makes the people feel like they are citizens of Europe and not just wherever they’re from. The increased travel also works for the EU because then, people get to know of more cultures and they don’t have to do a lot of paperwork to go to other countries that are also in the EU. The common market is a force that works for the EU because with the common market, workers and goods can travel across borders more easily. With a common market, goods are also cheaper because the tariffs are lower. Some centrifugal forces are the different languages, the different types of money, the different amounts of money people get payed and people’s national pride. The different languages are a centrifugal force because with over 20 languages, the EU have to translate everything to all the different languages. The euro is also a centrifugal force because not everyone uses the euro, even if they want to. You need to have a stable economy to be able to use the euro. Also the amount of wealth people have and the jobs people have are also a centrifugal force. Western Europe is wealthier than Eastern Europe, so some people immigrate to Western Europe. But then the people in Western Europe think that the immigrants from Eastern Europe will take all the jobs because they’ll work for less money. Some people might have national pride and not want to join the EU, in fear that if they join the EU, then their national identities will be gone. As you can see, there are multiple forces that work for and against supranational corporations like the EU.
