MONARCHY the 30-second politics Hereditary monarchs have existed throughout recorded history and historically claimed that their power to rule comes from God or some other divine source, even in societies that were not organized as theocracies. In practical terms, some monarchs have been so feared (or loved) that they could rule with absolute power over their subjects, while others have only been figureheads with real power shared with dukes, earls and princes. During the Napoleonic Wars, the French Emperor Napoleon I even installed ‘kings’ to govern several of the puppet states he established.
3-MINUTE MANIFESTO Class conflict exists in a number of guises – from the largely failed attempts to implement Marxism (in various forms) in Central and Eastern Europe, Cuba and East Asia, to more moderate efforts to create mixed economies.

The word democracy derives from the two Greek words: demos (‘the people’) and kratos (‘to rule’). It is both a very ancient and very modern concept. Plato and Aristotle discussed democracy and both saw it as a problematic type of government in which the poor would use their numeric advantage to tear down the wealthy. Democracy as a viable form of government only came into existence in the late 1700s – early 1800s and did not come into full maturity until the 20th century, when universal voting rights for all citizens regardless of race, gender or income became the norm.
