Types of Government

             In this day and age, the world wouldn’t go accordingly if it weren’t for politics and government. There are many different forms of government, each with their own views and structure. People of different countries, and with differentiating religions usually have their own form of government in which they can follow. The choice of which government is correct is a very opinionated one, and there is no substantial evidence to show one is greater above all. Consequently, government has always been a place where people choose sides, for there can only be one form of government in which a person abides by. .
             There are various amounts of governments that vary in the way they function. One type of government is Socialism, which is an economic and political philosophy that instead of private control of property and income, it favors public or social control. This is somewhat related to Marxism, and opposed to Capitalism. Marxism is the political, economic, and social principles and policies advocated by Karl Marx. Capitalism is an economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods. Nationalism, Liberalism, and Democracy are three forms of government that are frank in characterization. Nationalism is simply devotion to ones country, Liberalism is liberal principles and theories, and Democracy is government by the people.
             Fascism is the political philosophy that emphasizes the importance of the nation or an ethnic group, and the supreme authority of the leader over that of the individual. Hitler reformulated his ideas with that of fascism. It is called Nazism, and is an extreme form of fascism shaped by Hitler’s fanatical ideas about German nationalism and racial superiority. Consequently, it is a form of government that tends to stand out. Conservatism is type of government that is opposed to change, and is in disposition to keep to established ways.
