Question description

What Form of Government Would You Choose?

Imagine you are on a large ocean liner with 1000 passengers and crew.  The passengers and crew are all from countries other than the United States.

Suddenly, a storm hits and the entire ship is irreparably damaged and all of the passengers and crew are stranded on a deserted island. 

Fortunately, there is enough food, water and shelter for the shipwrecked passengers.  No one was injured or killed.

However, after thoroughly assessing the situation there is little hope of rescue.

After a while, a group has been selected to form “some sort of government” while stranded on the island.  You have been asked to join this group.

  • Write a 2-3 page, APA style paper,  attempting to persuade the group what form of government you would choose and why.  Include any opposing position along with your rebuttal of that opposing position. Use at least three sources to support your position. 
  • For instance you may write a paper explaining that the type of government selected is a democracy (and why) and the opposition would be those that disapprove of democracies (and why).
  • Include a title page and 3-5 references.  Only one of your references may be found online (not Wikipedia).  The other references must be found in the Grantham University online library.  Please see the rubric below.
