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.
