A group of people organized or de- organized (as in the case of anarchy).
Popular Form of govenments:
Communism- all people's needs are supplied by a strong central government. Everybody is working for the greater good. Its flaws are the most basic of them all. You have no freedom to excel at life and will always be under the rule of the government. etc.
Monarchy- all people are under a king/queen/etc. This would work very nicely but it all depends on the ruler at that time. If they oppresse the people or help the people.
Democracy- You all know what that is and in modern society it is easy to spot the flaws once again it usually ends with a struggle for power between the political parties but out of all of them. This is the closest to "free society".
Anarchy- there is NO CENTRAL GOVERNMENT. I classify this as a government because it works for the commen goal of equality. This is easily the most flawed due to human nature, ignorance, greed and all vices of humans. But beleiving in no government qquals a government. It controdicts it self and creates a pandorax.
In order of most likely working in modern society are:
1. - There is No Perfect Government as of yet.
6. Tolitarinism (You have no rights, in this form of government)
Think of it this way --- "All known governments should have its flaws. The piont of humans on this earth is to figure out which one works best"
A huge aggregation of incredibly evil people who come together daily to effect harm upon the rest of us.
My taxes have increased for a third time over the past year --the Government has screwed me again!
The cause, and often never the solution to the worlds problems.
Imagine a world without government? Yeah i cant either, but thats because we've all been programed to think government is the answer.
A tool used to take advantage of the masses.
Thanks to the government, large corporations can walk all over the population!
the people who are in charge of our planet.
generally a bunch of unprincipled crooks, but still better than the alternative.
the government lied about where the money was going.
A necessary evil. What America needs less of. A group of blood-thirsty vampires with an unquenchable thirst for more power. It was originally established to create a judicial system, to collect taxes and declare war, but has grossly over stepped its bounds. The GOV in America is not for the citizens anymore. It is not run by the lawmakers themselves but by lobbyists and special interest. The GOV has gotten so big that it wants to control what you do in your bedroom, what you do with your body, has invaded your home, has invaded your car, has even invaded professional sports. It wants to control EVERY aspect of your life. It is filled with corporate fatcats and lobbysists who give money to Congress for their special interest. It doesnt protect the little guy and the citizens anymore, but only looks out for its rich friends. The GOV cares more about pork (not the Presidential intern type) than it does about solving real issues.
The government sucks and is useless, filled with old, rich, white guys with little minds and even littler monkeys.
In most cases, a centralized administrative and legislative organization that serves to deter, augment, alter, promote and regulate different aspects of the human experience. Government's puport to solve problems arising from "The Problem of the Commons." Areas arise in which the individual actions of persons serve to deplete the general welfare of the rest of society. In such cases, the government has seen it fit to pool resources from across society, to dedicate to ensuring the continued survival of the species and the citizens of that nation or region.
The American government cured smallpox, broke up monopolies, develop the interstate highway system, insisted upon voting rights for all adults, eliminated usury, preserved massive plots of land for conservation, sent satellites into space leading to modern communication, researched international communication leading to the internet, tripled the lifespan of the average American over the past 100 years, and risked life and limb to provide food for Somalia, end apartheid rule in South Africa, liberate the women of Afghanistan, stop the ethnic cleansing of Bosnia and protect the soveriegn rights of people in Kuwait.
