Question: What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

In the European Union (EU), there are many Centripetal forces that unite Europe. For example, people who live in countries in the EU have a European citizenship. This means that they can travel almost anywhere in Europe, without the hassle of dealing with borders. In addition, the EU has created a cultural identity by having a common flag, anthem, and a holiday. This means that citizens think of Europe as a united continent, rather than lots of diverse nations. Even though there are centrifugal forces that pull apart the EU, the centripetal forces often override the bad things about the EU.

This is the flag of the European Union.

Question: What is the most effective style of government and why?

Answer: Constitutional Monarchy is the most effective style of government. The first reason a Constitutional Monarchy is the most effective style of government is, unlike Absolute Monarchy’s, there is a constitution in which everybody, even the king, has to follow. This makes that the king can not do anything that is mean, or unfair, which is good because otherwise the king could have too much power, and then he could abuse it. The second reason a Constitutional Monarchy is the most effective style of government is that, it is easier for the citizens because they do not have to vote, they can just wait for the next person in the royal family to step up to the throne. This is good because, the citizens do not have to worry about politics and such like voting for candidates, like citizens have to do in democracy. As history has shown, Constitutional Monarchy’s, such as Sweden, have successful governments.

Question: What makes a good citizen?

Answer: The following sentences will show what it means to be a good citizen, and some of the rights that a good citizen gets. A good citizen has some responsibilities that they need to do. There are different rights and responsibilities in different nations, and one of these nations is the United States of America. First of all, they need to follow the laws that the government gives, or that your local authority gives. Another responsibility you have is to always pay your taxes to the federal government. A third responsibility is to always stay informed about upcoming voting opportunities, so that a citizen will pick who they think is the right candidate. Some of the rights that a good citizen receives are as follows. The first right a American citizen has is the right of freedom of speech. Another right a good American citizen gets is freedom of the press. And last but certainly not least, a third right a citizen of the U.S.A. gets is freedom of religion.
