5 Forms of Government When people decide to form the social contracts that we call governments, they make many different decisions about how their government will look. President or King? Rule by few or rule by all? Hold elections? Where do the rulers get their power?

6 Democracy Any form of government in which political power is exercised by all citizens, either directly or through their elected representatives. There are two kinds of Democracies … Direct! Representative!

7 Direct Democracy  All citizens participate in government.  All citizens can create public policy if they want to.  Example: In ancient Athens, Greece, they held assemblies where citizens voted to pass laws.  There are no representatives in government: The citizens vote on everything!

8 Representative Democracy  Like direct democracy, all citizens participate in government  People elect representatives who vote on laws for the citizens  Representatives answer to the people through regular elections  Representatives are also usually held accountable by a constitution

9 Fill in the blanks* to review DEMOCRACY ! * → On your worksheet, underline the word that fits in each blank.

10 The two forms of democracy are __________ and ___________________. direct representative

11 In a democracy, all __________ participate in government. citizens

12 All citizens vote on everything in a ______________________. direct democracy

13 In a direct democracy, there are no ________________ in the government. representatives

14 In a representative democracy, the representatives answer to the people through elections at ______________________. regular intervals

15 Now that we’ve talked about DIRECT DEMOCRACY! And REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY! we can move on to forms of government where only one person is in control…

16 Autocracy A form of government in which political power is controlled by one individual such as a monarch, dictator, emperor, etc. We’re going to talk about two kinds of autocracy … Monarchs! Dictators!

17 Monarchy  Rule by kings, queens, princes, and princesses… sometimes by other names, but always MONARCHS!  Leaders usually gain their power because their parents were rulers too.  Some modern monarchies like Spain and Japan have constitutions.

18 Dictatorship  In a dictatorship, power is not inherited, but is acquired by force (military or political)  Dictators have absolute control over the lives of their citizens and usually people are not allowed to voice their negative opinions  North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un is considered a dictator

19 What else? We’ve talked about DEMOCRACIES… Democracy is… rule by the people!

20 What else? … and AUTOCRACIES… Autocracy is… … rule by one!

21 … but what other forms of government are there? What else? What if, instead of everyone or just one person, a few people got together to rule a nation? Rule by Few!

22 Oligarchy “Rule by few”  “Rule by few”  Power can be based on several things: Military strength = Military Junta Military strength = Military Junta Family power = Aristocracy Family power = Aristocracy Religious control = Theocratic Oligarchy Religious control = Theocratic Oligarchy  Oligarchies can often come from or lead to other forms of government (like autocracies)

23 Theocracy  “Theo” means “god” in Greek… so if a government is THEO-cratic that means it is ruled by… That’s right! A god or higher power!  Leaders ( autocratic or oligarchic ) are usually religious leaders and society uses religious law to settle its disputes  Example: The Islamic Republic of Iran is a modern theocracy that uses the holy Islamic book, The Qur’an, as its guide.

24 Anarchy  No government at all… WAIT ! Then who makes and enforces laws?

25 Anarchy  No government at all…  In an anarchy there is no government to make or enforce laws. What do you think that would be like?

26 Wow! There are so many forms of government! And remember there are also combinations… What is government ruled by GOD and a FEW people called?
