This week we have taken a deeper look into the idea of power and authority. We reviewed the 5 sources of power and why certain people, scenarios and institutions have power over us. Then we began looking at the different forms of government. Each form of government utilizes power in its own way. We discussed and reviewed the pros and cons of different kinds of governments around the world. Use the slides below to review this weeks learning.
