Here's Democracy!


Before the snow and wind came on Monday, we were having a riveting discussion about Democracy. We will now blog about Democracy and what our thoughts are pertaining to this form of government, which happens to be our form of government in the USA (At least something very similar). It is hard for us to imagine what it would be like living under a government of anything but Democracy. Sometimes I think we take our freedom for granted and don't appreciate what we have/where we live. Most, if not all, of us have always lived in a democratic nation. Let's begin to think about this fact and appreciate what we have by discussing Democracy and comparing it to other forms of governments that are in exsistence throughout the world. Let's gain an understanding of how good we have it. This is a multi-task post. You must do all tasks. In-Class blogging. You may do all 3 tasks in one comment or seperate comments.

Task 1: Answer the following Questions: (Use your Greek City-States Guided Notes)
*What is Democracy?
*Who Rules?
*What does the word 'democracy' actually mean?
*What happens if the Assembly gets too large? What did the Greeks do?

Task 2: Click on the Democracy Link "All Forms of Government." Choose one of the other forms of Government listed (Do not Choose anything involving Democracy). Tell me what the form of government you chose is and COMPARE it with Democracy. For example: tell me why democracy is better or why the other one is better. Tell me what it would be like living under each of the governments, etc. The point of this task is to introduce ourselves to other forms of government around the world and compare them with Democracy.

Task 3: (FUN) Click on the Democracy Link "Weird forms of Government." Look through the list on all the weird forms of government. Not all of these governemnts are actually in exsistence. Choose one from the list and argue your case as to why the government you chose is the best one. You may respond to other people's comments, of course.

Tyler 3limmer said...

Where each individual person has a vote about what to do.Whatever the most people vote for wins.Democracy means to let people vote for who they want to vote for.They only let the people born in Greece vote in Greece

Cassidy 3Wethor said...

Democracy is when the people rule. For example... the people vote for who is in power. The people rule Democracy means "demos - common people "kratos" - rule. The assemblies got to big and it was hard for everyone to find a time to meet. So the people decided that 500 people will be selected to serve as city council.

Alex 3Wilde said...

TASK 1
1. Government by the people
2. whoever gets the most votes

democracy means goverement by the people.

they made the council to a limit of 500 men that were to serve in the council for 1 year they were chosen through a system like the lottery

syd the kid said...

Task 1

1.Democracy is governed by the people.
2.The people rule, we rule.
3.Democracy means governed by the people. demos-common people
Kratos-rule
People could act and think for themselves.
4.500 people were selected to serve on a council for 1 year.

Cassidy 3wethor said...

I think foolocracy is the best form of government because emily and i would be incharge and if we were anyone that disagreed with us would suffer sever punishment. I will get back to anyone who disagrees

task 1

1 governed by the people
2who ever gets the most votes
3commom people
4500 citizens were selected to serve on a council for one year

Patrick 3Gallo said...

task 1
1. free government
2. the people no king
3. demos-common people kratos-rule
4. Action made that only 500 citizens would vote and be the assembly.

Task 2 was blocked because of the internet.

task 3
Anemocracy is ruled by the wind or by whim "act without thinking". It is the best form of government because wind is pretty powerful.

Nicole 3Petersen said...

#1. Democracy is the rule by the people, which means that everyone has the right to vote and make decisions about laws and other things. The word democracy actually comes from the words 'demos' , meaning common people, and 'kratos', meaning rule. If the assembly got to large it would start to get very difficult to take votes. When the assemblys finnaly got too large the greeks limited the assemblys to 500 men.
#3. I think that infantocracy is the best type of government because it is the rule by infants. I believe that babies have a say in laws too.

ALYSSA M said...

Task 1: democracy is a form of government. In democracy the people rule which happens to be democracy's meaning "the rule of the people". If the Assembly gets to large they created a lottery system.

Tasia Long 3 Pd <3 said...

Task 1:
Democracy is a government "by the people". As in, a bunch of people would vote for something. Like vote on a desicion. A king or a queen ruled. Democracy means government ruled by the people. When the assembly got too large, they had too make it so only people older than eighteen could vote, or be a part of their Democracy.

Task 3:
Autoarchy is the government by one person. That person makes all the desicions without anyone else arguing with them. I think this is the best because its kind of like a president. You wouldn't have to worry about a bunch of people arguing and ending up not making a desicion. It would also be easier to make a desicion.

Tyler 3LiMmEr said...

chromatocracy government by rulers of a particular skin colour.
This should not be a goverment because it is old-skool.This is totaly racist.

Alex 3Wilde said...

TASK 3
Doulocracy- Government by slaves

I think the Doulocracy is the best democracy because slaves have a pretty bad life and they deserve some respect from all the lazy people that own them.

Mackenzie 3Nelson said...

Task 1:

1]It is a goverment that is controlled by those who own land.
2]Athens.
3]Goverment by the people.

Task 2:none it is blocked.

Task 3:

My goverment is paedarchy witch is ruled by children. Mine is the best is because the children RULE!!!!and because they do rule.We would do good things and rule our parents.

marie 3engbrecht said...

1.)when one person rules by debate
2.)someone that is voted to.
3.)it means government by the people
4.)it grew to large to get anything done.

foolocracy- government by fools. It is the best because when you get together fools then they will make you laugh.And then tick you off in a while.

alyssa mahlstedt said...

I think infantocracy is most important because infants dont know what they are doing so they make random decisions instead of thinking it through and that would be awsome.

TEDPERIOD 3 DOHRMAN said...

Rachael4 Horner said...

task#1: Democracy is the ruling of gifferent people.The person who rules democracy is us[people]. Democracy actually means that is is not just one person ruling it can be many people actually.

2. The people would vote on who would rule.
3. People could act and think for themselves.
4. The citizens would select 500 people to serve on a coucil for a year.

Task 3
I think autocracy is the best because if only one person ruled, then there wouldn't be any argueing on who's choice is the best. The one person would decide on the one he or she thinks is best for the country.

i think cryptarchy is the best because no one has to know.

Braydon Reindl # 9 said...

500 men in government.
Picked by a thing like the lottrey.
This is the best wierd form of government.

Levi McKercher P.9 said...

Task 1...
A Democracy is simply government by the people.
The Kratos rule.
Democracy actually means rule by the people.
If the assembly gets too large, 500 citizens were chosen to serve on a council for 1 year.

Task 3...
Obviously the best government is Tritheocracy. That is governmen by 3 gods. I mean gods are gods. They live in the sky and are powerful. With them ruling nothing could go wrong. Right?

gideon crapser peroid 9 said...

1.Democracy is whaen the people get a say in there leader.
2. the people.
3.Democracy what i think means the people are able to vote and have say in who there leader is.
4.The citizens selected people to serve on a council for one year.

Umaima 9Koch said...

Democracy is government by the people.

The citizens govern the town, city-state, etc.

Democracy means:"Demos"-common people. "Kratos"-rule. Democracy-rule of the common people(or something like that)

500 citizens were selected(by having a lottery)to serve on a council for one year.

Paige 9Drenth said...

Task 1
1.Government by the people
2.The people
3.To let people vote for who they want too
4.500 people were selected
Task 2
gynarchy-government by women
that is the best one

kjerstin said...

Task #1
A democracy is goverment by the people. The Kratos are the ones who rule. If the Assembly got to big they whould select 500 citizens to serve on a council for one year.
Task #2
not working!
Task #3
The goverment I chose is gunarchy government by women.

Levi p.9 said...

Sure Cassidy. Foolocracy is the best. Lets have fools run our government! NO haha

chris bly p.9 said...

Task 1:

Democrocy is rule by the people. The people rule (like i just said.) Democracy Means "Common People" and "Rule", this make sense because the common people choose who rules. When the assembly gets to big, then the greeks choose 500 people to be on the assembly.

too be continued

Lydia period9 said...

I think gunarchy is the most important ruling because normaly you here about men ruling but it would be cool for women to rule once in a while.

<3Kayla<3 $Houtsma$ pd6. said...

TASK 1
*Governtment by the people.
*The person who rules is the Krato's.
*People get to vote for who they want to rule.
*They couldnt get anything done. They would select 500 citizens to serve on a council for 1 year.


TASK 2
*The government i chose was common wealth. I think its better then our government because a nation, state or other political entity found on law and it would get united by a compact of people for common good. It would be better living under this government because it would be united for common good.

Andrew 8Breitzman said...

TASK 1: Democracy is government ruled by the people. The people who rule are called the Kratos. If the assembly gets too large 500 citizens were selected to serve on a council for one year.

TASK 2: I think autocracy is the most important form of government because it is governed by only one indivual. Another reason why it is important is because every year a new person gets to take over.

Andrew 8Breitzman said...

Ryan

Just because the name sounds cool doesn't mean it is the best government. I disagree with you. I think autocracy is the most important.

syd the kid said...

goverment of infantocracy

Everybody has a right to speak what they think.So why not babies they are people too.Babies have fab ideas too like Baby Land.

Logan rankP9 said...

1.democracy is goverment by the people.
2.the people that ruled are the kratos.
3.the people voted for who they want.
4.500 people were selected.
Foolocracy is the best.
Having fools as our government would be awsome.

Emily 9Anderson said...

Dear Mr.Klumper
I think that the Rebublican Democracy is better than the Democracy itself so this is Part 2 and next is part 3.
I think the androcracy is really stupid only men. WOW that is way weird today and they had that back then but they shouldn't have that today women should not be slaves and not be able to do things girls should have their own rights.

cody welsh said...

this is anarchy a condition of lawless ness or political disorder brought about by the absense of govemmental athority and i think that democracy is better and i would want to be in the democracy part

jareddaleprd6 said...

a nation state or other politicalentity founded on law and united by a compact of the people for the common good.and democracy is a form of government in which the supreme power is retained by the people, but which is usually exercised indirectly through a system of representation and delegated authority periodically renewed.

matthew p-6 said...

The goverment I chose was Anarchy. If our goverment was anarchy, everything would be chaos. Democracy is way better because we actually have order and sensible solutions.

<3K@y!@<3 $Houtsma$ said...

Tasia i agree with you because like you said there would only be one person and it would be hard for people to argue with him because there would only be him in the law.

zach 6frantz said...

the Democratic Republic is you get to vote for who you want. it that is fair i think

Kaity 6Dybdahl said...

Task two
I choose ecclesiastical beacause it would be awsome because its ruled by your type of reliogn and they would feel the same way you feel so they would have the same choices. You would not have a argument with someone about your choice beacause it was yours. It would make life a lot easier

<3K@y!@<3 $Houtsma$ said...

Paidon i agree with you because infants are also human so that should give them the same rights that we have.

Alli Fatone pd. 6 said...

I chose Monarchy. It's a form of government that is ruled by a monarch. A monarch can be a sole ruler or a sovereign, such as a king or queen. Living in a monarchy would be a little different than a democracy. In America, for example, we are ruled by a president, congress, and sometimes, the military. Where as in a monarchy you are ruled by a monarch (with limited power) and the prime minister. In England (which is ruled by monarchy) you are basically ruled by the church.

sammie peterson6period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! said...

Democratic Republic - a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote for officers and representatives responsible to them.

Democracy - a form of government in which the supreme power is retained by the people, but which is usually exercised indirectly through a system of representation and delegated authority periodically renewed.

Ok now i am going to tell you some things that are the same for both of these! ok the both have a surpreme power.

Keenan 6E. said...

The other form of govrment I chose is dictatorship. In my eyes this form of goverment is the worst there is. Almost all dictators go mad with all the power they own. I mean look at Sadom Husain. One of the worst dictators to ever live. Democrcy is a much more controled form of goverment. It is shared by the people that believe in it.

Ashley 6Schobert said...

Task 2:

Anarchy:

-No one is in
charge


-There are no
laws.

Democracy:

-There are
many people
in the
government

-There are
many laws


Both:

-Rules are
not decided
by just one
person.

Marina 6 Gillespie said...

In our country we have the freedom to do whatever we want.
Thinking,Religion,Voting it's all up to us. Whenit comes to Commonwealth a state or nation founded on law and united by a comact of the people or are brought together for one cause.
That sounds likea very laid back goverment system to me!

cody6 said...

i agree with you zach we should be able to vote for who we want

matthew p-6 said...

Monarchy is a type of goverment controlled by like a king, queen, or somthing of that sort. I think that a democracy is better because we get to make decisions for ourselves and have free speech.

brad 6taylor said...

Democracy is better than TOALITARIAN( is a government that seeks to subordinate the individual to the state by controlling not only all political and economic matters but also the attitudes values and beliefs of its population)because you are not controled by a ROTTEN goverment if you even call them that. It would SUCK living where ever that is at because the SUCKY goverment controls your every move.

shambree 6smith said...

commonwealth= a nation, a state, or other political entity founded on the law and united by a compact of the people for the common good. I think this is close to what we have today.Commonwealth has laws and and it is for common wealth.


Cottonarcy- government ruled by the people in the cotton trade; I think this one is awsome because I think it would be fun to learn the ways to trade cotton. If you learn how to trade cotton think of all the other things you could trade,(they would have to have coton in them of-course) Another reson I think cottonocracy would be cool is that it could all types of wool products. That I think cottonocracy would be awsome to have.

$hyanne6 Johnson said...

our goverment lets us be free and do whaever we want. like having our own religion,beliefs and style. i picked totalitarian. it is a goerment that seeks to subordinate the indivisual to the state ny controlling not onlu all political and ecomonic matters, but also the attitudes, values, and beliefs of its population.

matthewp-6 said...

kaity-
I disagree with you about it being awesome by being controlled by religion because there are lots of different religions.

~*$J.e.s.s.i.e .. R.$*~ said...

Commonwealth is a important form of government because the nation or state enity founded on law and united by a compact of the people for common good.

Ashley 6Schobert said...

Task 2:

Dictotorship:

-Don't get
to pick
leaders.

-Rulers get
absolute
power.

-Power is
not restricted
by laws.

Democracy:

-Choose our
leader.

-Rulers do
not have
absolute
power.

-Power is
restricted
by laws.

awesome sammie!! 6th period!! said...

chromatocracy- government by rulers of a particular skin colour

I dont think ths is good cause this is mean and racist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

cody 6 said...

i think that argentocracy which is governent by money is the best because our world revolves around money and we use money to get the things we need

Dani 6Hoeke said...

Task #2

The government I chose was commonwealth because a nation, state, or other political entity founded on law.I think it would be better living under this government because it is united by a compact of people for the common good.

Jaeden6 Spurling said...

Communism:a system of goverment in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single-often authortarian-party holds power; state controls are imposed with the elimination of private ownership of property or capital while claming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people. I think this is important because i kind of helps keep order.

$!Haley Hoeke!$ said...

The goverment that I chose was communism. I chose this one because i think that it is better than our goverment. It is a system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single. it is often authoritarian and its party holds power. there is alot more info about this one. i chose it because it would change everything!!(i think well not everything!!)

thomas jon 6siemonsma said...

Anarchy-a comdition of lawlessness or political disorder brought about by the absence of governmental authority.

that would suck a lot to have a government think that having that government would be so terible it would not be like it is today.





2.Oligarchy-a government in which control is exercised by a small group of individuals whose authority generally es based on wealth or power.

WOW THAT WOULD BE THE BOMB TO HAVE A LOT OF POWER LIKE THE OLIGARCHY GOVERNMENT MR. KLUMPER OUR GOVERNMENT IS A LITTLE BETTER THAN THE OLIGARCHY WOW COOL

Adam 6Halter said...

Communism - a system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single - often authoritarian - party holds power; state controls are imposed with the elimination of private ownership of property or capital while claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.

GOOD
I think this one would be beter deacuse the economy wouldn't be
srugiling and there would be no staving people deacuse all goods are equally shared.

The only thing worse than being ruled by a whig beer brewer is the devel. Thats the most crazy thing in the world. It would lead to death.

halle 6doe said...

Monarchy is controled by kings and queens or somebody. I think that democracy is better than Monarchy because we can make our own choices and can go anywhere we feel like.

jake 8donahoe said...

dicktatorship is alot worse than democracy because a person or clique rules. It would be worse if the girl clique ruled.

Katy 8Ternus said...

task 2

Republic - a representative democracy in which the people's elected representatives, not the people themselves, vote on legislation.

Republic would be the best because every thing is desided by the people.

jake 8donahoe said...

face it shane you know you are wrong. the aged are smarter than the barbarians

Andrew 8Breitzman said...

The government I chose is Oligarchy. Oligarchy is different from democracy because in democracy we have a president. It would be wierd living in this kind of government because Oligarchy government is ruled by a set of indivuals. What is similar about these governments is that we both have a government that is in control, they are just ruled by different people.

8BeCc@ said...

anarchy is a lawless or political disorder it would be easy to live like this NO RULES!

Commonwealth-law founded by people for the common good.It would be also easy to live under this government.

Katy 8Ternus said...

task 3

Anemocracy:government by the wind

Being ruled by the wind would be wierd.

Ecclesiastical is a government administrated by a church.i would not like to live under this government because they are run by a church and probaly have to wear a funny hat thing. also they probaly have weird rules.our government is better cause we get free speech.

walker waterbury8 said...

monarchy is my word. a government in which the supreme power is lodged in the hands of a monarch who reigns over a state or territory, usually for life and by right; the monarch may be either a sole absolute ruler or a sovereign.my government
is democratic and it is a lot more free than monarchy.monarchy is one ruler and i don't think they get to choose.i think i like democracy more.

austin 8harvey said...

mine is anarchy mine is that there is lawlessness laws and no won can tell you what to do and in damocrocy the people would have a voice in words.

Andrew 8Breitzman said...

Matthew

I agree with you that democracy is better than Monarchy because I would hate to be ruled by a king or queen.

michaela B. 8th said...

Dictatorship - a form of government in which a ruler or small clique wield absolute power (not restricted by a constitution or laws). Also, a system in which the citizens do not possess the right to choose their own leaders.

I think democracy is a better form of goverment because the people can vote for their leader. And in Dictatorship citizens do not get any say at all!!!!!

Madisen 8White said...

Oligarchy - a government in which control is exercised by a small group of individuals whose authority generally is based on wealth or power

Democracy and Oligarchy are similar because they are both by the people.

I would want to live under democracy.

wyatt 8winter said...

republic: a representaive democracy in which the people's elected deputies not the people themselves. i chose this word becuse it is alot different then democracy.

molly 8howard said...

Oligarchy is a government controlled by a group of individuals whos authority is based on wealth. I think that oligarchy is good because their isn't just one person that makes the big decisions their are a group of people that work on a problem. They might be more friendly or neighborly to one another since they are probably friends. I chose this one because I think that it would be fun to see who would be in charge and what they would do.

becca goth 8 said...

Hi i think that the anary government would be easier and better for everybody. Mine is the best choice because no one is in charge of anything except for themselves and their stuff and or children.

lexi 8bliss said...

dictatorship is what i chose. it is when a form of goverment in which a ruler of small clique wield absoulte power. also a system in which the citizens do not possess the right to choose their own leaders. I chose this one becouse it sounds very intresting becouse one person or a clique ruled. it is diffrent from democracy becouse in democracy is ruled by a supreme power.
this is why i chose dictatorship.

kallie said...

That we get to chews what do. Then there did they chews for them.

hunter said...

Democratic Republic - a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote for offiers and representatives responsible to them.

walker 8 said...

my government is best because it is fun.only one person rules and i like it a lot.mine is way better than everyones because it is unique.

Cole Ripperda Period 8 said...

Task 2

The goverment I chose Oligarchy which is a goverment in which control is exercised by a small group of individuals whose authority generally is based on wealth or power. One difference from democracy is their council like group is chosen by power and wealth. Where as in democracy it's decided by a vote. And not all by wealth and power.

task 3
The weird goverment i chose is iatrarchy which is governed by phisicans which if you don't know are docters. This would be good so that the goverment could be run and health would be more cared for by the goverment.

andrew .8 said...

An Anarchy has no laws but Democracy has laws.

denton bose said...

Constitutional - a government by or operating under an authoritative document (constitution) that sets forth the system of fundamental laws and principles that determines the nature, functions, and limits of that government.
the democracy could be different because they always have functions.

maci rcks smykle........................................................................ said...

squarsonocracy umm,,,,, i have no clue what this is but ok... i disagree by sqautersbecause i think it is like a type of sqwash but im not sure but i love sqwash

connor smith8period said...

I chose republic which is a repuesentative democracy in which the people's elected deputies not the people themselves, vote on legislation. I picked it because every one should vote.

John Hedman per.8 ¿ said...

I chose oligarchy witch is- a govemment in witch control is exercised by a small group of individuals whose authority generally is based on wealth or power it is a lot differnt then democracy becouse it has a lot less people and there people have no say just the peop;e with power or weath

Drew Reinschmidt said...

barbarocracy is the best cause then u are run by barbarians. i dont know what they are so im doing them cause it sounds cool. i think they are are dudes with bones through their nose more to come i think

haley andrws pd8 said...

Commonwealth: Commonwealth is a system of govemment in a state plans and cantrolsthe economy. party holds power; state controls are inposed with the slimination of private owership.




Step:2

logan rankP9 said...

oligarchy i think is the best. it would be awsome to be wealthy and powerful and be on the govern ment!

JD 9 said...

dictatorship.a form of govermentin which a ruler or small clique wield aplasute POWER!!!!! "one and by one alone this country shall prevall!!!" aldolf hiler

Emily 9Anderson said...

I am going to talk about the democratic republic. This is a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens. I picked this one because I am a republican and I live in a democracy.

gideon period 9 said...

my website was weird froms of government and i looked at matriarchy which is government ruled by wowmen or mothers. I think that would be ok sense wowmen are smarter and better then men.

logan waldner9 said...

ecclesiasticle. a goverment administrated by a church.

1. i can live with it because i am a christion
2.bad. if you are not a christion you would not like it

Sally 9Hoffmann said...

Task 2
Monarchy is where one person (monarch) pretty much controls everything for life. And if one monarch dies, the next person in line becomes monarch. I think that would suck because what if that monarch person was evil? Then he could do anything he or she wanted and you would have to go along with it or he or she will kill you. Probably. But if the monarch was a good person it probably wouldn't be so bad. I still think democracy is much better because then we can choose who our leader person is. In monarchy, the next person in the family is the next monarch and nobody could do anything about it. Democracy is a whole ton better.

Paige 9Drenth said...

Task 2.
I chose Oligarchy - a government in which control is exercised by a small group of individuals whose authority generally is based on wealth or power.
Democracy is better becaues in democracy it is ruled by he people.
It would be unfair to live under Oligarchy.

Levi 9McKercher said...

Task 2...
I choose Ecclesiastical government. It is a government administrated by a church. It is kind of different than a democracy. It doesnt revolve around the people but just a church, run by pastors and ministers. I think democracy is a better from of government because3 it gives everyone a say, and not just pastors and a church. Living under this government would be very hard. The pastor may force much church things into our life, no matter how busy. That is Ecclestiastical, and I think Democracy owns that government. Just an opinion haha... C Ya L8r

Lydia E pd 9 said...

Task 2:

Sultante:similar to monarchy, but a goverment in which the supreme pwer is in the hands of a sultan.

Democracy i think is way better because you don't just have one ultimate leader.
Ithink it would be pure agony living with Sultante.

**c@itlynn** S. 9th said...

I chose Commonwealth and it means a nation, state, or other political entity founded on law and united by a compact of the people for the common good. I chose this because it sounded cool very cool like what calli said

what would we get done if the small group of people had know idea what they were doing.

Kjerstin 9 said...

The goverment I chose is communism. I chose this goverment because all goods are equally shared by the people.

Tyler 9Erck said...

2.Oligarchy - a government in which control is exercised by a small group of individuals whose authority generally is based on wealth or power.
I think oligarchy is better than democracy. Because oligarchy is controlled by people who are rich and powerful. Then again democracy and oligarchy are the same because we would still have a president and surpreme court and all those people. I think it would fun to live under a new goverment yet again i like democracy.

chris bly p.9 said...

Task 2:
I think that Commonwealth is a realy good form of goverment. It seems good because all the people have a law, and they unite to reach a common goal. This is better than democracy because it has a common goal that every one in the State/Country trys to reach, and law and order still exists. another reason this one is better is that there is no one man leader. when this happens the leader may make people unhappy wich may lead to an unhappy ending, such as assasination.

to be continued...

Umaima 9Koch said...

TASK 2:

Communism is a system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and all goods are equally shared by the people(a classless society, everyone is equal). Communism is like Democracy because:
-they are both forms of government controlled by people

Brendan 9G said...

1.Democracy~ government by the people
2.The people that ruled were the Kratos
3.The people voted for who they want
4.500 people were selected

2. Anarchy - a condition of lawlessness or political disorder brought about by the absence of governmental authority.

Austin3Meinerts said...

I think Peadarchy becausr that means governed by kids wouldn't it be awesome if kids ruled we would still have school but just because we have school doesn't mean it will be boring in the classes we can have a wii going or something well that's what I think

brad 6taylor said...

Task #3 this is the goverment I chose: paedarchy ( government by children). It is the best because we can do what we want.(yes mr. Klumper it is better than democracy)

macy 4murren said...

this is contunied

4.500 people were selected.








task3

i think paparchy is the best because its run by the pope. he is kinda like god i mean he is better than the devil everything would be peaceful too.

anontmous intelligent person I am currently working on Los Angeles cop it is in the post production stage. it is about a burned out cop who comes out of retirement to help a rookie catch a drug cartel and a gang led by the infamous El' Mojito. it is going to be super fantastic said...

George Washington once said that Democracy is one of the worst forms of government. this is very true because people cause most depressions. such as the great depression. this happens because people buy things hey can't afford such as a boat,car,house,etc. so they take out a loan they also can not afford. this leads to jobs being lost, hoovervilles being established, people spending all their money on the stock market. etc. therefore, average people can not be trusted wih the enormous task of running the country. Socrates believed that a small group of wise men should run the country. We are not a Democracy, we are a Democratic republic which means that the people elect the leaders, and the leaders pass things by running it by the people first. unfortionately, that is slipping away.
