In his assumption, parties do not really care about the policies they make, all they want is the votes that enable them to stay in office. Then if the information is complete and costless to everybody, the voters compare policies offered by different parties and vote for the one that serves their best interest. The politicians will treat people equally because everyone has and only has one vote. The best strategy for parties is to choose policies that they believe benefit most of the voters. However, if the information is not easily available to all, things are much different.

Thomas More’s imagined society of Utopia is a country filled with unique laws and customs that differ greatly from those of modern day nations. Even in More’s own time these ideas of how a country should be run were considered impossible to implement. One such feature of the Utopian Republic which may seem odd today, but was vital to the Utopians, is that the importance of the community be placed above the importance of the individual. Focusing too closely on one’s own wants and needs leads to a selfish negligence of the needs of others. In a society where one man’s work provided for the majority of the population, an attitude of selfishness was detrimental to community welfare.
Summary The three branches of government should be independent No branch should have power over selecting who makes up the other two branches However, the citizens cannot practically elect individuals for every office for example, the people may not be able to distinguish what makes a good judge (for judicial branch). the government has to be able to govern itself, meaning since men can be greedy, there must be constitutional walls that prevent one branch from becoming too powerful Usually, legislative branch is the most powerful in a republican government The legislative branch is divided into two to avoid an unfair concentration of power Majorities threaten the interests of the minorities Solution one: have a powerful government whose will is more powerful than the simple majority Solution two:
Freedom of speech has been recognized as the most fundamental value to a democratic society. It serves the individual’s rights, to be an active player in the democracy, not just a passive spectator. Free speech expands an individual’s thinking, without the ability to express ideas, to be exposed to other’s ideas, people then cannot develop fully as individuals. However, our society is built on law and order, which, means that inevitably there will be restrictions placed upon free speech. Recent cases led us to question if there should be more limits placed upon free speech.
1.6 CDA and Political Discourse Analysis There are many approaches for the analysis of Political Discourse integrated with Critical Discourse Analysis. Wodak (1995) postulates a major influence in this study by summarizing the constitutive principles of CDA as follows: 1- Political commitment: the aim of CDA is to uncover power-abuse and inequality. CDA is being criticised for being political only because its political values are explicit. 2- Problem-oriented research: CDA studies the everyday use of language in different social environments such as organisational discourse, media discourse, etc. Each discourse is socially relevant to the situation, thus it is problem-oriented.
If a man later gets the job even though he has no education, and no experience but gets the job. That is biased. Since our country has such great respect for its citizens, this is how the United States has economically advanced faster than other countries. We also need self-respect for ourselves not just for other people. If we have respect for ourselves, then we would not let other people take advantage of us.

Aristotle says that in order to be a proper student of ethics, the student must already have substantial life experience and instruction in virtue. A student that is not properly informed in ethics will not profit from the subject of virtue because this person is more inclined to listen to their own passions than to actually reason. (NE, Ch.1) Branching off of that, Aristotle believes that to be a leader, one should have the highest moral virtues achievable. They must have virtue in perfection. He also says that humans practice virtues because embracing them are what it means to be happy.
