Asked in Government
What makes some governments good and others bad?
Being an American I speak from the bias of loving freedom. A good government protects the people of the nation. A bad government rules over the people with use of fear tatics, bullying, oppression and removal of the people's rights and freedom. A good government represents the people. A bad government protects itself. A good government does not execessively tax the people and uses the tax funds to care for the country. A bad government excessively taxes the people and uses the funds to keep for themselves and not benefit the people. These are condsidered good forms of governments: parlimentary with elections, republics and ferations with elections, socialism with elections and benefits the people and monarchies that benefit the people. These are considered bad forms of government: fascist governments that oppress and harm the people. Nazi type governments that harm people, keep the tax funds for themselves and have an evil ruler, Communist governments with a evil ruler such as Stalin; or the current ruler of North Korea where the people are restricted severely and suffer severely; and monarchies or dictatorships where the rulers benefit themselves rather than the people, such as when Hussein ruled Iraq.

What is the significance of elections?
The understanding of the relationship between government and citizens of independent states has been gradually changing since the American Constitution was adopted. The simple realization that governments should be there to empower citizens and not the other way around is now the popular view of the relationship. Elections are an important part of that relationship. Elections serve as a method of empowering government to serve the people. If government doesn't empower the citizens, but instead reduces their lives; the citizens can use elections to change the direction of government. Elections give credibility to governments, that is why they are popular even in governments who abuse their citizens or seek simply retain power so that the government might enrich a narrow part of the population. Sham elections are used in many governments that wish to continue in power but need the credibility of citizen partication. The best elections are free of interference, have good information flow, have easy access to the ballot both as a voter and as a candidate. Citizens need access to pubilshed information about all the candidates. This access is provided by freedom of the press in the United States of America and in Europe. Limiting the press and what is published is one method dictatorships use to control sham elections.
How do some dictatorships and oligarchies try to make it seem as if the people have a say in the government how does the government really control the people?
To provide the illusion of the people having power, various governments have things like elections and grievance processes. If you are electing leaders, elections are of little use if you only have 1-2 approved parties and all the choices are pretty much the same. Grievance processes may be hindered by bureaucracy and may only create the appearance that action will be taken.
