What makes a good citizen

American flag

To be a good citizen you have to respect your rights and responsibilities. A good citizen stays informed and follows the laws. A right that citizens have is freedom of speech that means people can have petitions as long as they are not affecting others. But the responsibility that you have to get to the petition. Voting is a right but you do not need to vote. A responsibility that you have is to pay your taxes. In conclusion to be a good citizen you have to follow the law and respect the authority of others

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

Power

Unlimited and limited have different ups and downs for their country's. Unlimited government let's the leader /leaders have more power unlike limited government which lets the leader/leaders have less power.For example, in a dictatorship, a dictator has unlimited power and does what he or she wants. In contrast, in a constitutional monarchy, the queen or king are not in power and their responsibility is to only represent the country in world events. This limits them so they do not abuse power. limited government has less freedom/rights ,unlimited government has more freedom /rights. For example limited government the leader can't decide a law but unlimited government can. In conclusion, limited and unlimited government differ in many ways. They can have more or less freedom,control, rights and power given to the leader/leaders. That is how limited and unlimited government differ.

What forces work for and against supranational cooperation among nations?

The EU flag

In a supranational cooperation such as the EU there can be agreements that unite them and disagreements that divide them.The EU works together and has a cultural identity an example of this is celebrating holidays and having a flag.The EU unites or has a political centripetal force that lets citizens be able to vote for any representatives that are in the EU. Also they unite by using the common market because the common market makes it easier to trade by taking down tariffs or barriers. Also the EU let's you cross borders without having to change money or have a visa because most of the counties in the EU use euros .In the EU there is lots of diversity between the different countries which sometimes causes a centrifugal force.In the EU there are may differences which may cause centrifugal forces such as the west and east. In the west they have more jobs that pay more money than the east so the west might be scared of the EU taking the jobs. Another difference is the languages and cultures. The only problem with this is that the EU has to print many papers in over 20 different languages.In conclusion the different forces are centrifugal and centripetal forces that work for and against the EU. A centrifugal force is the differences such as the differences between the culture and languages among the countries. A centripetal force is the similarities such as when the countries are united in the EU by taking down tariffs so they could ship things in the EU for free.
