According to the dictionary, “government” means “the governing body of a nation, state, or community.” Wow, that’s actually not that very helpful. Ok, let’s consider the second definition. “The relation between a governed and a governing word.” What the heck? Not helpful either.

Ok, here’s a better definition. Government means the people who run a society. See, that wasn’t that difficult.

More specifically, the folks who make society’s rules and actually have the power and authority to guarantee that those rules are followed.

So what’s politics then?

Politics? That’s just how the power in government is distributed. The purpose of the government is to protect society. More specifically, to resolve conflicts, defend a society from other societies, or provide public services.

Now, people often get really passionate about government and politics because the decisions these folks in government make on a daily basis can have a HUGE effect on all of a society, or even all of the societies in the world. This is also why people have different opinions about the role of government in a society, and even what the best type of government is.

In this video, I am going to explain every major type of government, and at the end of the video, I will reveal my favorite type of government. Oh, and occasionally my friend Dr. David Miano (mee ah no) of the channel World of Antiquity will be chiming in.

Let’s start with two basic categories. Governments are generally either democratic or undemocratic.
