Legitimacy and the Foundations of Legitimate Government

- Legitimacy and the Foundations of Legitimate Government In this paper, it is my intention to discuss the issue of legitimacy as it relates to government. I will explore what a legitimate government necessarily consists of; that is, I will attempt to formulate a number of conditions a government must meet in order to be considered legitimate. A logical starting point in an investigation of legitimate government would seem to be an account of the original purpose of government. Problems arise, though, in discovering this original purpose; any and all attempts seem to consist of mere speculation....   [tags: Politics Political]

Government Intervention in the Free Market

- It is not only unnecessary for the government to intervene to maintain a free market, it is extremely wrong. Intervention by any outside party in corporate matters is inappropriate and basically contradicts the meaning of a free market. There are some positive effects government intervention could produce. These pros are, in fact, few, and questionable, at that. Take for instance, the situation with Microsoft. The government is sticking its nose in where it doesn't belong. Let's try and get passed that point for a moment and examine the good that could come out of government intervention....   [tags: Economics]

Webster's Desk Dictionary of the English Language defines government as, "The political direction and control exercised over a nation, state, community, etc." The common individual might define government as the root of all evil....   [tags: Governmental Politcs Political Essays]

Legalization of Marijuana

- Recently, the issue of marijuana use was brought to the attention of two former political leaders: Former President, Bill Clinton and Al Gore. When asked about his past drug use, Clinton refrained from answering. According to Bill Turque, a biographer of Al Gore, Gore spent much of his young adulthood “smoking dope and skipping through fields of clover” (Lowry 1). The irony exists in the fact that both Bill Clinton and Al Gore had previous encounters experimenting with marijuana, but somehow managed to become significant political leaders in society....   [tags: marijuana should be legal]

Free Trade and Government Participation

- All government seeks full employment, high standard of living and high quality of life. Free trade is supposed to facilitate those things, yet we do not have free trade. This is a true statement because when the government intervenes, things are not as simple as they should be. The government imposes laws and restrictions along with taxes and tariffs, which no longer make trading free. Free trade agreements set up international bureaucracies to govern the participants. It also ensures that all parties comply with the terms of the trading agreement....   [tags: essays research papers]

Government Regulation of Urban Sprawl

Since the early 1980's, over 4 million acres of farmland have been consumed by urban sprawl ("Farming"1). Despite the fact that such a large amount of farmland has been lost, Edward L.

- Spying is nothing new to the world. History books tell us that ancient civilizations like the Roman Empire, Egypt, Chine, India, and so on used it. On top of that, 1900s regimes like the Former Soviet Union and Nazi’s Germany used spying tactics around the world wars. The main use of spying at that time mostly was for political and military advantage. These countries were successful on spying. However, in the 21st century surveillance is used in different and very complicated way.

- Democracy is a Greek word meaning “rule by the people.” The idea of a democratic government began in Greece in 700 B.C, about twenty-five hundred years ago. Rome was so large that not everyone could play a role in government so the Roman citizens elected representatives to speak and act for them. This form of government was called a republic.
