Government System

Our government system was designed to consist of three branches, legislative, judicial, administrative. This matters, and intends to keep each branch in check. No matter how they disagree, it’s crucial to keep checks and balances. I certainly don’t want to live under a dictatorship where opposition is squashed or reputations are destroyed.

I recently read about Britain’s King Charles I who disbanded the British Parliament more than once in order to do away with opposition and be a dictator. He eventually was declared a traitor and beheaded in 1649. https://www.history.com/…/king-charles-i-executed-for…

I am most definitely not in favor of beheadings. Why did I share this? Because human power should never be absolute, nor fueled by selfish ambition.
