3 Types of Governments

The first type of government is a Unitary State. In a Unitary State, the central government holds supreme sovereignty, and Political units within the Unitary state may only exercise powers delegated to them by the central government.

The Second type of government is a confederation. In a Confederation, each individual Political unit hold supreme sovereignty, and the central government may only exercise powers delegated to it by the political units.

The Third type of government is a federation. In a federation, the central government and political units share sovereignty, and the extent and balance of that sovereignty is outlined in a constitution or charter.

3 branches of Government.

The first branch is the legislative branch. The Legislative branch is responsible for creating statutory laws.

The second branch is the executive branch. The Executive branch is responsible for carrying out statutory laws.

The third branch is the judicial branch. The Judicial branch is responsible for interpreting statutory laws, which leads to the creation of common laws. Judicial review is a form of common law. Common laws cannot directly contradict statutory law, and are only valid in court, since only courts can enforce common laws.

3 types of constitutions.

The first type of constitution, is a monarchy. In a Monarchy one person has soveirnty over the 3 branches of government.

The second type of constitution, is a Oligarchy. In a Oligarchy a few elites have soveirnty over the 3 branches of government.

The third type of constitution, is a democracy. In a Democracy common people have soveirnty over the 3 branches of government.

6 forms of constitutions

The 3 types of constitutions, are divided into 6 forms of constitutions. 3 constitutions represent the whole community, and the other 3 represent only a part of the community.

With the Monarchy, if the monarch is a foreigner, or is unrestrained in power, than they are a tyrant, and the monarchy becomes a tyranny. A Tyranny servives only one person; the tyrant. A monarchy serves the whole community.

With an Oligarchy, if the olgarchy is comprised of the best qualified, than it becomes an aristocracy. If it is comprised of the a few elites, regardless of their qualification to rule, than it's an oligarchy. An aristocracy serves the entire community, and a oligarchy only serves the elites.

If a democracy is a representive democracy, and the represenitives are restricted by rule of law, than the democracy becomes a republic. Rule of law means that the government must obey etablished laws; such as constitutional restrictions, or laws regarding ethics. Or in the case of the US supreme court, the Judiciary act of 1789. A Republic serves the entire community, while a Democracy serves only the majority.

The forms of constitutions are used in sync with the types of government. For example, the US is a Republic, and France is a Republic, but we have different types of government. France is a unitary republic. Their central government is a republic, and they have a unitary state. The US is a federation of Republics. Our Political Units, or states, each have a Republican form of government, as does the union state, or federal government.

Definitely something happened here. The second definition says an oligarchy is... an oligarchy. That one fits better to being a aristocracy. The former, the best qualified, is a meritocracy, I believe.

Aristocracy means "the rule of the best", and according to Aristotle it is the rule of the best qualified.
Depending on that society's view on what is best qualified, the qualifications may change. For example some societies may say nobility is the best qualified, as they are more educated, and more politically savvy. In most modern societies that may not necessarily be true.
If the qualification on the other hand was not based on ability but rather wealth, or political influence, than it may be considered an oligarchy.
In many cases it's a thin line easily crossed.

best qualified is a meritocracy. If society feels that scientists are best qualified, it is a technocracy also, but still a meritocracy. If society feels it is the nobility, then it is a monarchy or aristocracy, but still a meritocracy. And Aristotle defined an aristocracy or oligarchy as separate, but rules of the few, rather than rule of the one or rule of the many.

Also, if this is what Aristotle said, he says nothing on constitutions, these are just six forms of government.

This is closely based on Aristotle, for those (as in everyone, apparently) who don't recognize it. You can read the original theory in the Politics, Book IV and also Book VI.
