    Types Of Government Types Of Government Presentation Transcript

    • Types of Government
    • Anarchy
      Description
      No gov’t and no laws
      Total disorder
      Example
      Usually comes from gov’t failure, overthrown
    • Theocracy
      Description
      The leaders of gov’t are also the leaders of the religion
      Example
      The Vatican & Iran
    • Oligarchy
      Description
      When a family or small group of people control all of gov’ts power
      Example
      Saudi Arabia’s Royal Family
    • 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
    • Dictatorship
      Description
      A leader takes control over the gov’t and has total power
      Example
      Cuba (Castro) & Iraq (Saddam Hussein)
    • 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
    • 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
    • Absolute Monarchy
      Description
      When the King/Queen has total power over the gov’t
      Example
      Louis XIV in France
    • Constitutional Monarchy
      Description
      The King/Queen is limited by law and shares power with elected officials
      Example
      Present day England
    • Democracy
      The word “democracy” literally means “rule by the people.”
      In a democracy, the people govern
    • Direct Democracy
      Description
      The power of gov’t is controlled directly by the people
      Example
      New England Town Meetings
    • Representative Democracy
      Description
      The people elect representatives who then make decisions for them
      Example
      The United States
    • 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.
    • 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
    • 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”
