Strenghs of representative democracy. Representative democracy is a modified version of democracy that flourished between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries across Europe and America, where people elected representatives to make decisions on their belhalf rather than people assemble at regular intervals (known as direct democracy), as for example in Ancient Greece when democracy first started. Political philosophers also agreed but because they believed that people could not govern themselves. In Britain, representative democracy (or sometimes described as parliamentary democracy) more or less started to evolution the late seventeenth century when a Bill of Rights was agreed between monarchy and parliament that gave power to Parliament to sanction any law wanted. This was then followed by The Great Reform Act of 1832, where they introduced a system for the election of MP's, by the 20th century Britain had its separate parties.Then in 1945 the first truly modern election manifesto appeared with a clear program of reform and thus made representation farer.

Good and evil are hidden deep within the pages of history, and are the results of the behavior and leadership of single or multiple actors. These actors play a key role in the decision making process in the life of governments-- in other words they had the power and ruling authority over societies. The rise and the fall of civil societies and government is a direct result of the players who control the fate of so-called “civilized societies.” The ultimate truth lies on the core of functioning of the legitimate governments and on the ongoing fight of the people for justice, peace, and happiness. The 18th century enlightenment, an era that celebrated free inquiry, political liberty, and progress, saw the development of the theory of the social contract. 1This theory postulated a new political and social principle, which held that relations among individuals in a society, and between individuals and government, are governed by a social contract.
The Political Compass test is set up like a survey; a person answers questions and then based on the answers given the results of the test will show where the person rates in an economic dimension and a social dimension in regards to the political scheme of things. On the social scale a “Left Authoritarian” means that what the government needs is more important than the individual citizens socially. A “Right Authoritarian” is someone whose views are extreme when it comes to the state economic views they feel the government is more important than the individual a good example of this type of person would be Pinochet who just to protect the free market was going to approve mass killing. If you are classified as a “Left Libertarian” then it means you feel that each individual is more important than the government on a social scale one good example of a left libertarian is Ghandi. A “Right Libertarian” is a person who does not want the government involved not for a social reason but rather because of a fiscal one; such as taxes the government charges a good example of a “right libertarian” is Milton Friedman.

To understand political power, you must first understand power, and politics. Power, as defined on page 3 of the text book, states that it is a way to control persons, or institutions behavior, by persuasion of coercion. Politics is a process in which a community selects a leader, empowers them, with decision making, action taking ability for common goals, and reconciles conflicts within the community. Through political participation, we empower leaders we hope will have policies for the general good, betterment of society, the public interest in mind.
