Summary
Welcome to Forms of Government: What's the Score?, also known as "the world's longest running game show. Today's contestants: Absolute Monarchy, Representative Democracy, Communism, Socialism, and Fascism. The categories are Power, Law and Order, Liberty and Personal Freedom, Social Contract, and Pix and Nix. Who will be the winner? It's up to the viewers to decide, as they judge the merits of the various contestants. As the "contestants" (each representing a different type of government) respond to questions from the host, viewers use a scorecard to rate each form of government on a scale of one to five. The game show format makes it easy to become familiar with the history and basic principles of these five forms of government. The scorecard activity provides a framework for viewers to evaluate the effectiveness of each type of government in each of the five categories, and to compare and discuss their responses. Includes archival footage of government leaders, helping viewers develop a working knowledge of these varying philosophies in governing.
