The major differences between democratic, authoritarian, and anarchic political systems are who holds the power, who has freedom/how much, and how much involvement the government has in the workings of its country. For authoritarian states, the power is held mainly by a single person or an elite group of people, few people have freedom, with what freedom they have being limited, and the government, or rather the leader/leaders, is involved in almost every aspect of the country from controlling the economy to making decisions for the lifestyles of its citizens like deciding how many kids they may have or what hair styles are approved. Everything is at the whim of those in charge and can change at any second. Anarchic is the exact opposite of this. In an anarchic government, everyone has power all the power they can take for themselves, nothing is unpermitted as there are no laws and since a government doesn’t exist, it can’t have any involvement in anything. Finally there is the democratic system which is a happy medium between these two extremes. In a democracy, everyone has some power through the right to vote directly or for elected officials who will run the country (who are limited by a constitution of some kind), everyone has freedom within the country’s generally reasonable laws, and government involvement is limited to making laws and regulations within reason to protect its citizens, economy, etc. For example, you would not see a democratic nation forbidding speaking
Government is an essential part of civilization in modern and historic times. This crucial element of society has been observed in different forms. There are three main systems of governments: autocracy, oligarchy, and democracy. Which system a government belongs to is determined by who hold the sovereignty, meaning who has the supreme power and authority (“Sovereignty”). This leads to there being major differences between autocracies, oligarchies, and democracies.
If you compare Oligarchy vs Democracy on how stable a government these can provide, then certainly dictatorship wins hands down. Oligarchy government often resort to violent methods to curb any kind of public uprisings to protect its power and ruling status in the country.
The type of government that will fit on my island would be democracy, because it is a system of the whole population of the state. I chose democracy because I would want my island to have laws similar to the ones of the United States. The reason why I didn't choose autocracy or oligarchy is because autocracy is a system of one government which means one person makes laws and has all the power to control how things work on the island. Oligarchy is a system in which the groups are small and have little little ideas for the island. The island will need large groups with leaders that will be in charge of certain things on the island this is why I think having democracy is better than the other two. You will have more groups to help you organize
In the past, different civilizations have been ruled by different forms of government. The U.S. Democratic Republic, the Roman Republic, and the Athenian Democracy have similar and different functions of how they run their government.
Throughout history, there have been many systems of government that have been created, and have revolutionised todays modern forms of government. Democracy, Monarchy, Dictatorship, Theocracy, and Anarchy all use various, unique techniques on how to run a civilization. Each of them require different leadership traits in order for it to work properly.
Authoritarian government and the U.S government is different is very drastic ways. The U.S lets the people vote for the person who will be president. When authoritarian power is inherited of taken by force. The U.S has many different political parties when authoritarian usually has one overall party. Authoritarian government relies on the state control of controlling media, police or military forces,and terror. The U.S relies on the power of the laws made.
A democratic republic best protects the people against tyranny when compared to a pure democracy. A pure democracy is deficient because a large group of people can put one person in office who can abuse his power to be unfair to minorities. In a democratic republic, you have multiple representatives, elected from each state, who meet to administer the government. The group of representatives can be influenced by each other. Therefore, there is no real difference between a democratic republic and a pure democracy. However, in our current system, we are governed by two parties, which produces the likelihood of tyranny if a party was to become more strong than the other. Having two central parties also reduces the number of beliefs shared in the government. Therefore, several smaller parties would benefit the people the most because it diversifies our government and prevents the rise of central power.
Dictatorship is a type of government in which the people have to follow strict guidelines for their behavior that the government sets forth. For example, Hitler set forth strict policies and guidelines for Germany. In countries, like Cuba under dictatorship rule it can create an increase in crime within communities due to food shortages by limits set by the government. In a system of democracy, in places like the United States, the filibustering between the Republican Party and the Democratic Party can create an unbalance of power shifting the power group’s focus. Republicans are more conservative in their ideals and are more resistant to policy changes. While, Democrats are more liberal and want promote new ideas for the policy agenda. So, the parties play a major role in creating societal issues because it provides division between groups of people due to contrasting ideals. Republic governments elect people like democracies to govern their government and also deal with the issue of corruption and whether officials are really campaigning for their citizens. An Aristocratic government structured with elected officials of a
In this essay, I will be discussing policies enacted by Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government and explaining how they relate to the political compass. In the first paragraph, I will explain the difference between libertarian and authoritarian policies. In the second paragraph, I will discuss the Liberal government’s proposal to amend the Canadian Human Rights Act to add gender expression to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination, and illustrate why that constitute a libertarian policy. In the third paragraph, I will discuss the liberal proposal amending the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act and why that constitute an authoritarian policy. Afterward, in the fourth paragraph, I will explain the difference between the left-wing and the right-wing policies. In the fifth paragraph, I will discuss the Canadian Liberal government decision on the rise of the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) payouts and why that constitute a left-wing policy. Then in the sixth paragraph, I will discuss the Liberal’s Canada-EU free trade agreement and why that constitute a right-wing policy.
The government is a group of people that govern other citizens, make laws and make sure citizens are safe. The government was chosen by people and people elected their leader. The government is in charge of creating and regulating laws, managing the economy and enforcing policies so it makes people live better. Both communism and democracy are forms of government, but they are quite different based on ideology, politics, and economy. I was born in Japan, then spent most of my life time in China and now I am living in United States so I lived in both Democratic countries and Communist countries and I have a pretty deep impression about these two forms of governments.
1. Democracy is a type of government that emanates from the constituted powers that are elected, depending on the system (presidentialist, parliamentary, constitutional monarchy, semi presidentialist, semi parliamentary, etc...) directly or indirectly by the people. Whereas in an absolute monarchy, an absolutist regime exists and is in power because of family lineage.
A dictatorship is a government ruled by one commander. An example of this is Iraq. Saddam Hussein is the dictator of Iraq. Whatever he decides becomes law. Dictatorships are similar to absolute monarchies in that they are very oppressive to the people of the country. The major difference between the two is that absolute monarchies are families inheriting their power while dictatorships often result from military takeovers or from an elected official who refuses to step down from his elected office.
A dictatorship is a form of government where a dictator is ruling usually with full authority and force. A dictatorship, in my opinion, is one of the harshest types of government because most of the time there is barely any freedom and the dictator rules by force. A dictator is usually elected when the government is in its democracy form and at that point, they are referred to as a president. However, they start prohibiting opposing organizations and canceling free elections. A dictator is basically the government where he or she acts as a whole for the entire political
As systems of government, Democracy and Dictatorship exhibit key differences in how leaders are elected, power is distributed and how people are governed. Nations that have a democratic element are those where the people have a substantial say, through a system of voting, about who is representing them in the government, and where leaders are not governing for life. In
Under an authoritarian regime, specifically a dictatorship, the ruler has the political and executive power to persecute an individual or group for political reasons, which demonstrates a form of political oppression.
