What is the Best Form of Government

Today, we’re going to be doing a multi-part assignment.  The first part is to visit these two pages (Types of Government and List of Government Types).

  • What type of government from the first page do you think is best?  Why?
  • What is the most surprising type from the long list? Do any of them seem like good ideas?  Do any of them seem like particularly bad ideas?

Post your response below.

  1. policeocracy government by police cause I believe in the police and I think they would be good as a government and to protect us and be there better then what we have now cause they how more experience then other people.

  2. Communism-Republic-Democracy
    There are several that are just wrong, some of the few that are wrong are: Slavocracy, doulocracy, demonocracy, despotocracy, diabolocracy
    cryptarchy- This one out of all of them wouldn’t work period because one there would always have to be someone to protect who ever is in power and then it wouldn’t be a secret anymore cause there would always be the chance of the identity of whom ruled coming out into the open.
    Actually I personally don’t think that any of the governments from the long list seem right besides maybe anarchy but there would have to be some control cause if not then others would try and rule over the weak…. so I go back to my statement that none of the governments from the long list are good.

  3. The best government that would benefit from any government would be the way of a Democracy. There will be no one to over rule their own power or control. The people woudl pick and choose who they would want to be in charge. Some what like the way USA government to a certain extent.

  4. I do not like any of the types of gov’t. from the first page, well maybe a revolutionary or democracy (U.S. doesn’t have that btw). There are a few that sound interesting I can’t decide between which one but they are; Philosophocracy, Tritheocracy, or a Prophetocracy. If these three were a type of government we would all gain infinite wisdom, and knowledge about life, and every thing within our solar system and beyond.. Basically we would all be at peace and know ones self well.

    1. A good government that feeds the brain knowledge like that, rather than having a government that pulls the wool over your eyes and tells you all lies…

  5. I think the best form of government would be a socialist republic but with true democracy. Basically America but with the votes actually counting. Socialism would be better since we basically have companies sponsoring our politicians, so let’s reverse this. Have our politicians sponsoring companies owned by the government. Plus free health care seems alright. We can’t change the electing since people are already used to that. Plus conflict in the system makes it all the more self checking. It might be Wiemar Republic-ish, but everyone’s gotten used to it. As for democracy, I’m not talking all the citizens sit in a soccer stadium and vote. Basing the votes of the Electoral College on estimates of votes in each state is shady as hell. We’re better off with using robots and letting everyone with a social security number vote, even convicts. Of course we’d need an unbiased party to count the votes, perhaps we can have the UK count them since they don’t care.

    The government controlled by angels and demons seems kinda weird. What dictates what is an angel and a demon? Ouija boards? I think though we can go back to the Roman partial ruling. Since we don’t really do that sorta land conquering thing anymore, we could have someone rule each time zone or something and report to the main guy president. A tetrarchy reporting to a democratically elected president who the president chooses. Sort of like the Supreme Court. But then again, state pride and all that. It’s all super complicated. We’re better off just electing a horse to run our government.

  6. Mixture of Xenocracy & Pantisocracy and Revolutionary and Republic. Basically our society. But each year we have a different race/background for president. We have had to many white presidents, I don’t want another Bush, and I really don’t want Donald Trump as a president. This is America, we are bilingual community, especially Chicago, Miami. This country was made from outsiders/foreigners coming to this country. Plus every race will be treated equally and not mistreated with police brutality.

  8. I would definitely choose Capitalism, Republic, and Democracy as the best fit for the nation because first Capitalism allows people to make their own decision when it comes to businesses, owning properties etc. Secondly, Republic because at least the people of the nation are taken into consideration by electing a responsible individual to make wise decisions and set solid rules and regulations to make this country a better place to live in. Lastly, democracy, it is the same explanation for the previous point. The government choice that I think is completely terrible is Anarchy because there is no one in the position to set rules and regulations to make this country a safer and better place to live in. Without a leader, there would be massive corruption, violence, poverty.

  9. arithmocracy is the best form of government because it shows how the people have a voice and could chose who they want to run their country. Instead of not having a opinion or one family staying in the government because of blood traits. The surprising type from the long list of government form is chrysoaristocracy because the thought of wealthy people running a country will only make the economy get bad because the rich only care about the wealthy and not the poor. polyarchy is a good form of government because it would be the people chose of how thay want their country to operate. chirocracy form of government seems like a bad idea because we don’t need a governor who will force what he think is right for the people.

  10. I think monarchy because its easier to be rule by king and/or Queen or yourself ruling the country. The most surprising one is tritheocracy. There are a lot that are good ideas but the rest are bad ideas.

  11. The best type of government for me is absolutely a socialistic Republic with a serious and considerable Democracy.
    All of the world believe that USA is in this area, and yet, I haven’t noticed a genuine democracy inside the U.S so far. Regardless of our actual type of government, the whole society would be happy if we would rather have a Democratic Country, because, who would be satisfied with a country that doesn’t consider the voice of its society? Ever since, we’ve always been fighting for that to become actual inside the U.S.

  12. ◾What type of government from the first page do you think is best? USA Why? USA is a republic country a republic is led by representatives of the voters. Each is individually chosen for a set period of time.

    ◾What is the most surprising type from the long list? Afghanistan; Afghanistan is anarchy is a situation where there is no government. this can happen after a civil war in a country, when a government has been destroyed and vital groups are fighting to take its place.

    Do any of them seem like good ideas? No.

    Do any of them seem like particularly bad ideas? Yes, because its seem like they don’t give the people ant type of ideals to think or act on anything that we give them that open freedom.

  13. In my opinion the best government would be a socialistic parliamentary. This would be great because the government would take care of school and medical which now seems to be a hassle for people. I know with this comes higher taxes but is say its well worth it. Then I chose for it too have a parliamentary because its more than just one person leading and gives the people more of a voice. The people being elected represent a series of areas. Rather than just one person elected from one place its more spread.

  14. The best government I think is democracy, because the government is elected by the people, and I think that is a great idea.
    And the most surprising type of government in the list I think is heroarchy and tritheocracy but in my opinion almost all government just want to have power , and power is all that a government want to have.
