Con

is there a perfect division of power and authority in a government system? Explain your reasoning through evidence or belief.
Athias

Pro

Your argument is already faulty in that it presumes a perfect condition, Which we all know cannot be attained through the subjective preferences of a collective. Second, You have not really made clear the nature of the division of which you speak. Are we talking Executive, Judical, Legislative, Or House vs Senate, Etc. Or are we talking about the 560 members of the government? And operating on your premise, What is "perfect"? "Equal" authority?

Allow me a general statement: the purpose of the government, Or so it is alleged, Is to serve as a central representative body to those whom its presumes to govern. The elected representatives are to galvanize its electorate in service to public initiatives, I. E. The establishment of public goods through pooling resources.
