What makes a good citizen?

To be a good citizen means that although you have certain rights they all come with responsibilities , for example U.S citizens have the right to vote. but in order to vote it is a responsibility to stay informed. Also if you are not responsible with your rights it may affect other people like if someone blasts music in the middle of the night they could be affecting their neighbors if they want to sleep. This means that you need to follow both political and social laws, an example of a political law is paying taxes, where as a social law would be not to yell fire if there is no fire, (although you have the freedom of speech.) In conclusion A good citizen is respectful with their rights.

Limited v.s. Unlimited

What is the difference between limited and unlimited forms of government?

The difference between limited and unlimited governments is how much control or power that the government gets. Limited governments have limits on what they can and can't do, they do not have a lot of control or power over the citizens. Limited governments has more restraints on what it can and can't do, such as the five limits of government. The government would have to stay within these limits. Democracy and constitutional monarchy are two forms of governments that are limited. Unlimited governments have total control because their are no limits, and have a lot of power over the citizens. Unlimited governments have no limit to their power or control and no constitution to follow. An unlimited government could basically do whatever they want. Unlimited governments also don't usually respect the citizens rights and often citizens fear unlimited governments. In conclusion unlimited governments get all of the control and overrule the citizens whereas limited governments don't get a lot of control and consider the citizens.
