What is government and why is it necessary?
Government is a system we use to control and protect our society. Our government uses the rule of law to make sure that everyone has equal rights. For example, when a group of people decide how they want to live and set up laws, they create a government to protect people, homes, and ideas. They write and constitution. It is necessary to have this control because if you don't, there is chaos. In the USA, we use the constitution as a guideline for how people should act in society. We also make sure the laws are enforced.
The preamble of the constitution shares examples of how people should live their lives under a representative democracy style of government.
When creating a government that protects the rights of all of the citizens, it is wise to have separation of powers. In the US, we separate power into three branches: the executive is the White House, the legislative in the Congress, and the judiciary is the Supreme Court.
In conclusion, It is necessary to have government, so that we have better lives and we are safe.
There are many forces that work for and against the supranational cooperation in the EU. The euro is a very good example of the centripetal force that works good with the supranational cooperation. For example the EU is a common currency that allows trading and travel.
The Western is richer than the Eastern and the Western doesn't like to share because they feel like that the Estern is just using them for the money in the EU. This would be called centrifugal.
