However, since the writing and signing of the Declaration of Independence, a few different actions have taken place that do not go hand in hand with the words of Jefferson. There are three main points that Jefferson would have a say in about America today, which are that we are no longer united as we once were, the people no longer control the government, and the government does not look out for the happiness of the people anymore. To begin, it is clear that in America, there is a certain point of unity that has been lost over the years, and that us as Americans need to strive to regain. Our country has the word ‘United’ in the middle of the name, so why is is so hard to stay as such? In the Declaration, Jefferson states, “...that all men are created equal…”(Line 13).
Constitution is necessary for the coordinating of a state as it involves the fundamental rules and regulations in which a state exists . However the Britain constitution involves a written foundation such as the statutes. It is one of the few that is not written down in a single document . As an idea by Blick, it is due to the absence of a serious moment in the history, such as a revolution or an independence that has made Britain transformed the constitution to the level codifying it. However, two of the most important regulations of the Britain constitution are known because it is much based on Parliamentary Supremacy (means that Parliament can, if it chooses, legislate contrary to the fundamental principles of human rights) and the division of powers (meaning that Parliament, as opposed to a written constitution, it is the highest source of law in the United kingdom and that the executive, the legislature and the judiciary powers would be divided among themselves.
Eastern and Western European countries had many differences on economics and political structures. Both the East and the West tried to achieve an absolute monarchy, which can be described as a type of government where the monarch has complete rule over everything. Although both had an absolute monarchy at some point, they were structured differently and one much more successful than the other. In Eastern Europe the members of nobility had almost all of the control over the poor peasants who lived in their community. They controlled their judicial and economical state.

Most of Europe in the past two thousand years has been ruled by monarchies, with some states having active monarchs up until the 20th century C.E. In this stretch of time, different kingdoms in Europe saw the rise and fall of absolute monarchy, which refers to a ruler having total control over his or her kingdom, free from the restrictions of legislature and customs. The rise of absolute monarchy gives credit to two features which radically transformed governance in these kingdoms, and mainly those of England and France. The feature of mercantilism allowed further involvement of the ruler in the economic sphere of his kingdom, namely in trade and production, as compared to his previous role in simply collecting revenue. Further, the king used
The term Britishness is now merely regared as “a limited utlitarian allegiance simply to those political and legal institutions which still hold this multi-national state together” (The Independent, 22 May 1993). In other words, it is only valid in passportss, visa application and other official purposes and people rarely use it in relation to themselves in their social, cultural and personal life. To English people, Brishness is seemingly banal while Englishness exerts spine-tingling effects and sounds glowingly sonorous. Despite this, while Scotishness and Walesness are now distinguisable, there has been still heated debate on what the Englishness truly is. this is largely due to the fact that a thousand years of dominance and the mutilculturalism, a result of colonies, leave it in a massive
The Continental Congress had very minimal power under the Articles due to which it could neither establish a federal judicial nor deploy the army or the federal police for enforcing the laws. Since the Articles could not solve the rivalry among the thirteen states, the Constitution replaced it in the year 1787 as there was a necessity of establishing a strong and powerful national government. There are various notable similarities and differences between the Articles and the Constitution. While the
In all regions and climes, ancient communities had traditional methods of removing erring public Officers. This practice was well entrenched in ancient Greece African Traditional societies were no exemption in its modern usage. However, the history of impeachment could be traced to the 14th century England, 42 when the parliament began to see it as central to the control of King’s Ministers so as to hold them accountable. Ever since, impeachment has assumed ubiquitous statutes such that its provisions can be found in the Constitutions of most countries of the world, even though they were rarely invoked and to that extent largely redundant. The case of United State where only three Presidents have ever been charged with impeachment offences by the House: Andrew Johnson in 1768, Richard Nixon in 1974 and Bill Clinton in 1978 illustrate this reality.
Democracy is the rise of voice from people. People rule the government and people share equal right despite of different social class and religion. In the medieval time, a small mountainous country is sub divided into many parts. Each part was ruled by a different aristocratic family. Over many centuries Bhutan remain isolated and Bhutanese does not have any idea about democracy.
There are two aspect which are highly responsible for the strong role of the center in Pakistan. The first one is in the start there was no any constitution to run Pakistan in a better way. During this period the political system was virtually turned into a unitary system. Secondly in all the constitutional setup the balance of power has been greatly shifted in favour of the central government. Pakistan has faced the lack of a stable representative government and remained under a non-democratic and military rule for a long time.
