Distinguish between the three contemporary theories of American democracy and politics (pluralist, elite and class, and hyperpluralist) and identify some of their strengths and weaknesses. 6. Understand the nature of the scope of government in American
It was neither desirable nor even possible to eliminate the cause of faction. It was not desirable because it would require ‘destroying liberty’ and so the remedy ‘was worse then the disease.’ It was not possible because ‘the causes of faction are sown in the nature of
After accepting that you can focus on just how much you want that power to be limited, but in order for you to benefit from the government you have to realize that they will have that power. (10 points) 4. Write a paragraph that compares and contrasts two types of government. Choose two types that both fall under the same category of government classification (i.e., by who has the power, by how much power the government has, by where the power is located, or by how the power is divided between branches). Answer: A dictatorship and democracy are quite different, but they can also be similar.
The FFA criterion is likely to result in different diagnosis when applied to people from different cultures, because the standard of one culture being used to measure another. Individual Differences is another limitation. Another difficulty with applying this definition is that some psychological disorders may not prevent a person from functioning adequately.

The Judicial Branch, has power that is, arguably, unregulated; power to overturn decisions by both the Executive and Legislative Branches. How does a judicial branch with unrestrained power fit into a democratic society? At first, it would seem impossible, yet judicial review may be single-handedly responsible for the preservation of democracy, and more importantly, liberty in America. In America’s democratic society, between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Branches of government, the Judicial Branch may sometimes be regarded as the branch of government with the least amount of power. A closer analysis of the United States’ system of government might reveal that the Judicial Branch holds a great deal of power.
Beliefs will be referred to only in the general sense of political opinion; the definitions will mean either a conservative or liberal view as a whole and not on individual issues. Furthermore, a liberal opinion will be used synonymously with Democrat and is one that focuses on the rich supporting the poor, individual freedom, strong centralized government, and spending money to offer services to the public.

The realm of democracy has become so indefinite that even we do not know what it stands for. The questions on democracy are numerous and powerful and each of them take a bite out of what democracy represents. Queries such as democracy’s definition, what governmental choice a country has made, and the relationship between individuals and the state create uncertainty as to how democracy became bastardized. I will examine these three questions in how Macpherson saw it, how I saw it, and how I look upon it now. Macpherson’s views on democracy are very different from what the average person in the 1960’s thought of democracy.
