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.

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...
