Government's puport to solve problems arising from "The Problem of the Commons." Areas arise in which the individual actions of persons serve to deplete the general welfare of the rest of society. In such cases, the government has seen it fit to pool resources from across society, to dedicate to ensuring the continued survival of the species and the citizens of that nation or region.

  10. A group of people organized or de- organized (as in the case of anarchy). Popular Form of govenments: Communism- all people's needs are supplied by a strong central government. Everybody is working for the greater good. Its flaws are the most basic of them all. You have no freedom to excel at life and will always be under the rule of the government. etc. Monarchy- all people are under a king/queen/etc. This would work very nicely but it all depends on the ruler at that time. If they oppresse the people or help the people. Democracy- You all know what that is and in modern society it is easy to spot the flaws once again it usually ends with a struggle for power between the political parties but out of all of them. This is the closest to "free society". Anarchy- there is NO CENTRAL GOVERNMENT. I classify this as a government because it works for the commen goal of equality. This is easily the most flawed due to human nature, ignorance, greed and all vices of humans. But beleiving in no government qquals a government. It controdicts it self and creates a pandorax. In order of most likely working in modern society are: 1. - There is No Perfect Government as of yet. 2. Democracy 3. Communism 4. Monarchy 5. Anarchy 6. Tolitarinism (You have no rights, in this form of government)
    Think of it this way --- "All known governments should have its flaws. The piont of humans on this earth is to figure out which one works best"
