Question: What is the difference limited and unlimited forms of government?

The difference between limited and unlimited government is the amount of power the government leaders have when running the government. Limited government has checks that prevent governments from having unlimited or to much power. For example, in limited governments there usually is a constitution that explains the rules of the government and the rules usually will limit the leader’s power. In unlimited government, there is either no constitution or it is ignored, and the ruler can do whatever they want, even if it breaks the law. An example of limited government is the United States. The United States is a representative democracy so it has multiple leaders that limit the government's power. An example of unlimited government was Fujimori, the former president of Peru, who ignored the constitution and arrested other government officials, by doing this, he had unlimited power and could abuse people’s rights. In a dictatorship like Fujimori’s, there is no limit for what the leader can do. limited government has limits on what the government can do, while unlimited has no limits on what the government has the authority to do.

What does it mean to be a good citizen: A citizen is someone that lives somewhere and is required to obey the law. When someone becomes a citizen they are given freedom for voting. A good citizen votes and thinks about their choice before doing so. It is the law to pay taxes when you are a citizen, it is also a responsibility to file them. Good citizens pay their taxes because they probably use government services like driving on roads, and going to a school. Some rights that people do not need to be a citizen for are freedom of speech and the right to petition. Good citizens respect others freedom of speech and are tolerant of them. Good citizens care for their country, their communities and the environment.

People carrying taxes to the post office, because they are good citizens that pay taxes.

Question: what are the centripetal forces that unite nations.

Within supranational government, there are often centripetal forces that unite nations. One example is that in the EU they unite and work together on problems they share like pollution. This happens because they need to stop pollution and they can only do it together. Another example of a centripetal force is the Euro, it allows trading in other countries without having to pay money to exchange for another currency. The Euro was created to help people with trading problems and unite the supranational government, (The E.U) under one currency. Those are all examples of centripetal forces that help unite the EU.
