September 26, 2007 MC 201: Lecture A Case for the Superiority of Parliamentary Government Britain has an unwritten constitution o One reason for the unwritten form is that the government is in a constant state of evolution – it is admirable that there is not a specific date when the British state was founded because it has changed so much and yet so slowly o Adaptability and Flexibility: “yesterday’s institutions are best for today” Once constitutions are written down, it becomes very hard to change them – ex. The Electoral College The government is allowed to evolve to meet the historical circumstances surrounding it more easily This makes a permanence of change in the system o Legitimacy is key – it’s very hard to define and to measure. Must understand the depth of support, and the ability of the public to obey for success in the government o Combines permanence of change with stability and order, because the change happens so slowly that the government is stable

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
