Transcript

  • 1. Types of Government
  • 2. Anarchy
    Description
    No gov’t and no laws
    Total disorder
    Example
    Usually comes from gov’t failure, overthrown
  • 3. Theocracy
    Description
    The leaders of gov’t are also the leaders of the religion
    Example
    The Vatican & Iran
  • 4. Oligarchy
    Description
    When a family or small group of people control all of gov’ts power
    Example
    Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family
  • 5. Dictatorship
    A dictatorship consists of rule by one person or a group of people
    Very few dictators admit they are dictators and almost always claim to be leaders of democracies
    The dictator may be one person
    Castro in Cuba
    Hitler in Germany
    Or a group of people
    The Communist Party in China
  • 6. Dictatorship
    Description
    A leader takes control over the gov’t and has total power
    Example
    Cuba (Castro) & Iraq (Saddam Hussein)
  • 7. Think, Pair, Share
    DIRECTIONS: on a scrap sheet of paper
    THINK - What will likely happen if a government denies all power to the people it governs?
    PAIR – Read another students answer to the question, then get your paper back and add any comments to your paper
    SHARE – tell the class when the teacher calls on you
  • 8. Monarchy
    A monarchy consists of rule by a king or queen.
    Sometimes a king is called an “emperor”
    There are no large monarchies today
    The United Kingdom, which has a queen, is really a republic because the queen has virtually no political power
  • 9. Absolute Monarchy
    Description
    When the King/Queen has total power over the gov’t
    Example
    Louis XIV in France
  • 10. Constitutional Monarchy
    Description
    The King/Queen is limited by law and shares power with elected officials
    Example
    Present day England
  • 11. Democracy
    The word “democracy” literally means “rule by the people.”
    In a democracy, the people govern
  • 12. Direct Democracy
    Description
    The power of gov’t is controlled directly by the people
    Example
    New England Town Meetings
  • 13. Representative Democracy
    Description
    The people elect representatives who then make decisions for them
    Example
    The United States
  • 14. Republic
    A literal democracy is impossible in a political system containing more than a few people
    All “democracies” are really republics.
    In a republic, the people elect representatives to make and enforce laws.
  • 15. Aristorcracy
    An aristocracy is ruled by the aristorcrats
    Typically the wealthy, educated people
    Many monarchies have really been ruled by aristocrats
    Today, the term aristocracy is used negatively to accuse a republic of being dominated by rich people
  • 16. Democratic Republic
    Usually a democratic republic is not democratic and is not a republic
    A government that officially calls itself a “democratic republic” is usually a dictatorship
    Communist dictatorships have been especially prone to use this term
    The official name of North Vietnam was “The Democratic Republic of Vietnam”
    China uses “The People’s Republic of China”
  • 17. 4 Corners
    Which type of government would you want to live in?
    Back right (by the bookshelf) – Anarchy
    Front right (by the Mantra) – Theocracy
    Front left (by my desk) – Dictatorship
    Back left (door) - Democracy
    What affect do various forms of government have on people around the world?
