What forces work for or against supranational cooperation among nations? Within supranational cooperation, there are often centrifugal forces that divide nations. Wealthier people in Western Europe worry about losing jobs to EU citizens that will work for less. This means that the wealthier people (from Western Europe) are worried that people from the EU will take their jobs because the EU members are willing to work for less money. This is an example of a centrifugal force. Also, there could be more than 20 languages spoken. If there are more than 20 languages spoken in the EU everyone would be struggling to understand one another which could be difficult because the EU is about working together. This is another example of a centrifugal force. Although the EU sounds great there are still lots of things to be worked out such as the examples above.
I chose this image because it is the flag that symbolizes the European Union.
What do you think is the most effective style of government? The most effect style of government would be a direct democracy. Direct democracy is the most effective style of government because the citizens can vote for the laws that they want. In other governments one person makes all the laws and the citizens have no say. In addition to voting for laws, the citizens also have the right to vote for the candidate who they want as president, senator, etc. In a monarchy people have no say in who they want to rule. It is all by blood. So a direct democracy definitely seems to be the a lot more effective than a monarchy or a representative democracy. Hopefully this paragraph shows that a direct democracy is the most effective style of government
I chose this image because it shows a direct democracy meeting and that is what my paragraph above is about.
