Ksenia Yurchenko

I think, there is not a world government that is not corrupt, because in our world, solve all the money. I know, it is a terrible and wrong.
Ronald Regan said: “Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem.” I am absolutely agreed with him. It is correctly. Government is a huge problem, because the government cant keep track of all sectors of society. I know, there are special bodies of political system, which to help society, but it cannot help all people. Moreover, special bodies of political system don't pay attention to the problems of society.
In my opinion, government is essential in a democracy, because Democracy is the kind of political structure of the state in which the people exercise the legislative and executive power functions directly (direct democracy) or through their representatives ( It is a scientific term). Furthermore, democracy can help government pay attention to the problems of people. It is a very important.
“People should not be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.”
I think, it is absolutely right, because government is people, who live in this government. It is very often, people don’t support with the decision of the Government, and they can arrange meetings. Sometimes meetings are held peacefully, but sometimes meetings are held terrible. People can destroy shops, set fire to cars and throw stones at police.

I think there is not a corrupt government, because of taking so many bribes.
I agree. Because government passes laws, but there are people who disagree with them. Government will not make everyone people happy. People often organize strikes and demonstrations. I think Governments should be afraid of their people, because the people choose their government.


Kseniya Strig

I believe that only the Chinese government is not corrupt, but I’m not sure in this on 100%. But in other countries are struggling with this problem.
I agree with Ronald Regan because the system of government is imperfect, both in its organization and in relationship with the people. Constantly arise which is discontent, once they decide it is impossible, since everything is interconnected. Difficult to change everything.
Government is important in a democracy because it is the result of organization of power. More of all people elect representatives who protect their interests.
Government probably can make someone a happy, but not all. It depends from many subtleties: possibilities and desires of the people, the government itself and the individual.
'V for Vendetta' is famous phrase. We are talking about revenge. Everything is interconnected in the world. You should listen to your neighbours, people.


Viktoriya Votyakova


In my opinion, the modern world has no goverment without corruption because every public person wants to make money. I absolutely agree with Ronald Regan. I think goverment can not help everyone. I think, that democracy can help goverment on the society problems. The goverment can not make happy everyone, because it is impossible. The goverment can not monitor all people in this goverment.



Luchinkin Pasha
I believe that in our modern world, no country with a corrupt government.
I do not agree with the expression of Ronald Reagan, because the government has all the powers of authorities.
I think that the government can't make all happy because at everyone the person has the desire for happiness, but it can't be.
People it as the big mechanism, and the government is the general center. If something in the mechanism goes not so all system will be broken.
And in life if the government doesn't supervise, the state people will arrange revolt.



Maxim Cheremnykh
The most common form of corruption is bribery. I think that the corruption of the world's governments remained, people who can honestly run and do not use their position does not exist. There are dozens of documentaries proving or denying fraud in world government. State forces, so a citizen is enemy of state. With Ronald Regan I totally agree, our problems are not interesting in government. Need to stop paying taxes, so that no was what steal. To make everyone happy the government will fail, because a citizen's desire is too demanding.


Kamron Brace

I believe that all governments are corrupt because there are no incorruptible people. I do not agree with Regan’s quote. I think that although the government can be problematic, it is necessary for a successful country. I do not think that the government can make everyone happy, because everyone has different needs. I also think that the government should be very afraid of the people. Our constitution gives us the right to rebel if the government does not fulfill our rights.



Surin Dmitry
I think that government in every country is corrupt. People, who have enough money to control the government, have the real power.
I agree with Ronald Regan. Government pays attention to the problems of society. But it can’t solve problems as fast as people need.
Government is very important in a democracy because government is chosen by the people and it should to do one's duty.
I think it is impossible to make everyone happy. People quick get used to the good and want more.


Chugunov Roman


I think that all goverment is corrupted. Because it is impossible that governer would not take money because of conscience, all depends of amount.

Yes I agree with his phrase, because it is absolutelly true. Our country has a huge problem with goverment, but I dont think that there is sometone better who would manage our country.

No I don't think that goverment is essentual for the democracy. And also I dont think that goverment can make peaple more happy i rather tjink the opposite. For my opinion people and goverment should both should be afraid of each other.



Samoschenko Marina

I think, there is not a world government that is not corrupt, because in our world, solve all the money. Ronald Regan said: “Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem.” I am agreed with him. I think goverment can not help everyone. In my opinion, government is essential in a democracy. The goverment can not make happy everyone, because it is impossible.
What do you think of this line from the 2006 movie ‘V for Vendetta’? “
We have a lot to learn from this man by the name of «V». A person who is not afraid of ideas that could make men free. The main idea of the film is that people should not fear their government. The Government should feel responsible to the people and feared. I am agreed.


Kretinin Vasily

I think uncorrupted government can be in such a small country, where everyone knows everyone, because if you got a bribe, people surely will know it and won't make any deals with you. I disagree with Kamron that there aren't incorrupt people in the world. For instanse, I know famous story about Eliot Ness and The Untouchables. Briefly, this is a great man, who incarcerated Al Capone despite his numerous lavish money offers. I don't think existence of government is such a problem. Every man has his own problems and needs, so we need somebody who will see the big picture and think about general questions, who will stay above personal benefits. I think, that a government in a democracy is essential, but less essential than in totalitarian or authoritarian country, because there are large police forces in totalitarism, which control government unsupported by people. Government at my opinion can't make every man happy, there is one russian proverb, which I fully agree with: "Every man is a smith of his own happiness". So, at my opinion, person can be happy only with making yourself happy. I didn't see "V for Vendetta" film, but I agree with this line. The main idea of democracy is responsibility to the people, that can create, think, protest and change.

I think that there isn’t government that is not corrupt, because all policy is based on corruption. If we had government that is not corrupt, it would be an ideal a state, but such a state cannot exist at all. I agree with Ronald Regan that “Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem.”I think that system the relationship between people and the government is not perfect, because it is a complex system of life, because this government is the problem. Government is important form ofgovernment. If we didn't have government, we would have anarchy or chaos. Government cannot make everyone happy, because will always be victims of a policy. I didn’t see “V for Vendetta”, but I think Governments should be afraid of their people, because people can to rebel against their government at any time.


Aleksey Nikitin.
Corruption is rife in all the developed countries of the modern world, but solve this problem in each country in its own way. I believe that there is a fault of the Government, the rule: "The more laws, more often violate them." No one has repealed. I completely agree with Ronald Reagan. Only the people who care about the fate of the country, the citizens of this country, etc.

France - a developed European country. The French are fighting for their rights, use different ways to protect yourself and French citizens from the terrible beast - "the Government".

In Russia, people probably do not realize that the "Government" is doing everything to them pockets were complete. Here is an example: In Russia, " burying " nuclear waste - the people silent. There are many more examples, due to what our officials are buying everything they see.

I think people need to fight for the future of the country, the people and for themselves.


Bagrov Dmitry

Government without corruption is not, in our world everything is decided by money.
The government can not make everyone happy, because all people have an understanding of happiness, but it should provide the most comfortable living conditions in that country.
And the government should fear the people because Russia knows very well what the revolution.

I think, there is not a world government that is not corrupt, because in our world, solve all the money. People, who have enough money to control the government, have the real power. I agree with Ronald Reagan, because the control systemis deficientin relation to people. I think, that democracy can help government. The goverment can not make happy everyone, because it is impossible.
