Forms of Government

Margaret: Okay, the teacher said that we should set up an ideal Form of government for our Imaginary country and then work out detailed plans for Governance.

Tony: I think the simplest is a Dictatorship. I’ll make all of the decisions.

Margaret: You’re sounding like a Fascist. This is supposed to be a Partnership, remember?

Tony: Okay then, let’s make it a Monarchy. I can be king and you can be queen.

Margaret: You’ll probably still make all of the decisions as king. Maybe we should consider an Oligarchy. Your family and mine can Rule equally.

Tony: That’s fine with me, but you’re the Communist, or at least Socialist. Don’t you think an oligarchy would be too Elitist? I would think you would prefer a Meritocracy of some sort.

Margaret: This isn’t about my Personal politics. It’s about what’s best for our imaginary nation. How about a simple Democracy?

Tony: There’s nothing simple about a democracy. How about no government at all?

Margaret: You mean Anarchy?

Tony: Sure, that would be the simplest.

Margaret: Why do I get the feeling that you’re making suggestions based on the amount of work this assignment will take, rather than political considerations?

Tony: That’s because you’re very Perceptive. I have a big weekend planned!
