Governments In Star Wars V.S. Governments in the Home
In the movie "Star Wars" their exist many different forms of government. In this essay I
will be comparing those forms in the movie to the ones found in the home. I will be starting
with the most basic form of government and working up to the most complex.
The most basic form of government is anarchy, The total absence of government.
In the movie the best example of anarchy is Yoda, living by himself on Dagohba without the
interference of any one apart from self. An example of this at home would be when children are
left at home while their parents are away for any extended period of time. Unlike Yoda though,
the children do not live in a total anarchist state for they will eventual have to answer to their
parents when they return.
The next most primitive form of government is a direct democracy as shown by
The Ewoks probably started out as many small groups that lived separate from one
another and grew into what they are now through the evolution theory where, over time banned
together in order to provide an easier means to access the necessities of life for the groups. At
the time you see them in the movie they seem to be using a tribal form of government where the
elders make up the governing body, but let every one else take part in the policy making
process. Besides using a tribal form of government they also believe in divine right, or a god
given someone the right to rule them as demonstrated by the Ewoks immediate worship of
C3-P0 upon sight. This can be compared to any modern family a moving into an apartment
along with many other families...
