    1. Week leadership (Look at the Stuart Kings)

    2. Poor economic policy (cancelling debt, eleborate spending, not using tax money well)

    3. Absence of a balance of power (Think about the forming of constitutional government)

    4. Religious differences (This goes back to when religion determined government like with the Catholic church. Sometimes religious warfare and missrepresentation occured.)

    5. Over regulation that results in dissatisfaction of the people.(dictatorships, absolutism, totalitarianism, some really religious governments, Machiavellian governments)

    first of all, comprehend how politically linked Goldman Sachs is and different wall street companies are to Washington. Then comprehend how plenty closer those companies are linked to the contemporary administration. whilst the SEC began accusing and attempting to make costs of fraud stick (might that is in criminal or civil court docket), presently after information comments approximately specific SEC team seems approximately their immorality, to that end looking innovations on a thank you to do away with them, or a minimum of demonize the SEC. The SEC is being scapegoated. that is being executed so the politcal friends of those companies can draw interest faraway from the companies under examine or as a skill to attack the SEC, and get the conventional public to coach against the employer, to that end making politcally plausible and often occurring to make that angency much extra powerless. I guess extra memories of SEC's incorrect doing will seem interior the media and then shorty there will be a action via those in Washington to the two discover innovations on a thank you to reorganize the SEC, shrink that is investment or discover innovations on a thank you to do away with the employer altogether. I guess the regulation could be named "The Federal monetary Regulatory fee Act" or another conflicting and contradicting call. as quickly as the SEC is thoroughly powerless or backs faraway from those politically linked companies, then there will be a information launch praising the SEC for doing such solid paintings. possibly even a definite praising the pasty scab team brown-nosing replacements as heros whilst they sack the adult males who have been fired for actual giving a damn and actual did their jobs. that is frightening to realize a similar companies and companies who set up the ecomony for the present meltdown with a view to fulfill their greed have this plenty effect over our united states's leaders.
