In the scope of government, this style of leadership can be referred to as statesmanship. In Federalist 70, Publius calls for a strong executive in order to provide the robust energy needed to maintain the republic. A strong executive can prioritize the country itself over the law of the country, thus going against popular and accepted opinion to do what is best for the country. This behavior of putting the country’s needs over the desires of the public is the key aspect in the statesmanship style of leadership. Furthermore, the statesman is more focused on the long-term impacts that their decisions will make on the institution rather than the immediate satisfaction of the public because the well-being and longevity of the institution is prioritized over what the public desires.
For a globalizing world, people who favor the strong party government suggest that responsible parties are essential for problems such as global warming and terrorism. However, the advantage of party government cannot compensate its disadvantages. First and foremost, the nature of party government would increase the conflicts in American politics. The party government does represent the majority, meaning that there is potential for some minorities and interests groups are not properly represented. This would lead to further conflicts in politics.
In Ronnie Lipschutz’s book entitled The Constitution of Imperium, Lipschutz, a critical theorist, offers a rational and thought provoking evaluation of the United States’ social, political, and economic influence in the International arena. The Constitution of Imperium that Lipschutz discusses is a paradoxical document proposed by the Bush administration that would approve of the US’ ability to operate outside of the US Constitution without any written consent, besides the actual Constitution of Imperium itself. This new Constitution would lend more influence to the US by allowing it to have greater political, social, and economic power over other actors who agree to policies, or organizations that were created by the US. Lipschutz proposes that the US has been building its imperium since the end of WWII with its creation of organizations such as the United Nations.
Allowing someone to have all the power is dangerous for a nation in the sense that they will be most likely be making decisions to benefit themselves as opposed to the whole country’s needs. Preventing tyranny gives people the opportunity to have some power in what decisions are being
Tyranny is when one person or group has too much power. To protect it’s people from tyranny the Constitution uses federalism, separation of powers, and checks and balances. An important tool the Constitution uses is Federalism to share power. Federalism is when a country has a compound government, which includes a central government and state governments. James Madison explains that power will be divided between the central government and state governments; the said power will then be split between discrete departments.
In Chapter 1, “PURPOSES AND PRINCIPLES Article 1” one of the points states that a purpose of the UN is to keep international unity and to remove anything that threatens peace (Nations, 1945). Even though at first international laws may seem to only include human rights, they are much more complex and they affect us in many different ways. There are two main types of international laws: Public International Law and Private International Law. Public International Law includes laws that
This development is more characterized by elitism than it is the case of pluralism in nature since many unfolding events or outcomes are more typical of the elite form of worldviews and actions. One of the major factors associated with this is that the associates to the constitutional convention comprised majorly of those of European decent, affluent associates of the “upper class.” This particular group of people sought a strong central administration that was meant to congeal their own power, influence, and interest in the best way they wanted it to become. Even though the convention was alleged to have been held with the view of modifying the articles of the confederation that had been guiding administration, other partakers thought otherwise. This is so because, Hamilton and Madison fought for an absolutely novel form of administration that they deemed more superior and suitable than the one that was in place those
Some examples of enumerated powers include taxing, regulating commerce with other nations, declaring war, creating post offices, and providing a Navy. Implied powers are powers that are not directly listed in the United States Constitution, however they are implied and still followed by the government. Implied powers are different from enumerated because they are not directly listed in the Constitution but they are similar because they are both necessary powers that are essential to the government and the people. The purpose of implied powers is for Congress to pass
Human Rights Act provided a new basis for judicial interpretation but “not a basis for striking down any part of it.” Domestic courts are put in a position of a problem solver but their “hands” are bind really tight and it is hard to protect human rights since so many prohibitions are implemented. On other hand, looking to Human Rights Act from a political perspective, it is thought that this act upholds the doctrine of Parliamentary sovereignty and political control. Since more tools are given to the judiciary it may result in judges as law-making power. Recent governments have shown concern over the increased power
An issue in theoretical basis on what should prevail or which is supreme between International Law or Municipal Law (national law) is usually presented as a competition between monism and dualist. But in modern approach there is now the theory of coordination or is also called Harmonization theory that rejects the presumption of the other two theoretical concept, monism and dualism. The monist view asserts the international law’s supremacy over the municipal law even in matters within the internal or domestic jurisdiction of a state. While it is true that the international law defines the legal existence of states as well of the validity of its national legal order, the dualist asserts the international law is an existing system that is completely separated from municipal or national law. That dictates the
