According to the Sociology in our Times, “politics is the social institution through which power is acquired and exercised by some people and groups”. Politics brings about power and authority to those with power. Unfortunately politics often times brings about corruption and abuse of the power or authority gained. There are four major theories of political systems Monarchy, Authoritarianism, Totalitarianism, and Democracy….

·         Monarchy (with Latin and Greek roots meaning “one ruler”) is a political system in which a single
 family rules from generation to generation .A monarchy is a system in which power is passed down to each generation in a family by inheritance and it is commonly found in the ancient agrarian societies

Absolute monarchy  
Constitutional monarchy 

·         Types of Monarchy
Monarchies are associated with political hereditary rule, in which monarchs rule for life and pass the responsibilities and power of the position to their children or family when they die.  Most monarchs, both historically and in the modern day, have been born and brought up within a  royal family

·         Characteristics, Powers and Roles of Monarchs

and the monarch rules as an autocrat, with absolute power over the state and government—for example, the right to rule, promulgate laws and impose punishments.
Monarchs have various titles including  king or queen, prince
or princess emperor or even
duke or grand duke. Islamic monarchs use titles such as Shah, Caliph, Sultan Emir and Sheikh.

·         The term "democracy" originates from the Greek word demos meaning "people" and kratos meaning "power".A democracy is a government where the people rule either directly or indirectly through representatives. In other words, “A political system that gives power to the people as a whole”.

·         Democracy

Direct democracy
Indirect Democracy

·         Types of Democracy
Some nations prevent their people from having a voice in politics. Authoritarianism is “A political system that denies the people participation in government”. An authoritarianism government is indifferent to people’s needs and offers them no voice in selecting leaders.

·         Authoritarianism

This is a form of government that doesn't consider it's people's opinions and thoughts. They use force often and do not hold elections. There is usually one person or a small group in charge of the government. Examples of Authoritarian Government are North Korea, Burma, Zimbabwe Libya, Myanmar, and Uzbekistan   etc….
Characteristics and Examples of Authoritarian Government

Totalitarianism is a modern autocratic government in which the state involves itself in all facets of society, including the daily life of its citizens. A totalitarian government seeks to control not only all economic and political matters but the attitudes, values, and beliefs of its population.

By c.wright mills
that a small upper class holds most of societies wealth ,prestige and power. he clamed that the power elite head up the three major sectors of society the economy the government and military. thus the economy made up of the super rich .
Marxist political-economy model
An analysis that explains politics in terms of the operation of a society’s economic system.

where as power elite model focuses on the disproportionate wealth and power of certain individuals. the Marxist political-economy model bias rooted with in this institutions especially it's economy.
Karl max clamed that a society  economic system( capitalists or socialist)shapes its political system.
In politics there is always disagreement over a society’s goals and the means to achieve them a political system tries to resolve these controversies within a system of rules. But political activity some time breaks the rules or tries to do away with the entire system.
·         Revolution
Political revolution is the overthrow of one political system in order to establish another. While reform involves change within a system, revolution means change of the system itself. Several general patterns characterize revolutions.
·         Rising expectations
Common sense suggests that revolution would be more likely when people are severely deprived. But history shows that most revolutions occur when people’s lives are improving, rising expectations, rather then bitterness and despair, make revolutions more likely.
·         Unresponsive government
Revolutions become more likely when government is unwilling to reform itself, especially when demands for reform by powerful segments of society are ignored.
·         Radical leadership by intellectuals
The English philosopher Thomas Hobbes claimed that intellectuals provide the justification for revolution, and universities are often the center of political change.
·         Establishing a new legitimacy

Over throwing a political system is not easy, but ensuring a revolutions long-term success is harder still. some revolutionary movement are held together mostly by hatred of the past regime and fall apart once new leaders are in stalled.
·         War and peace
·         War
      The most critical political issue is war, organized armed conflict among the people of various nations, directed by their governments. For almost all the 20th century, nations somewhere on earth were in violent conflict.

·         Causes of war

Wars occur so often that will might think that there is something natural about conflict  ,there is no evidence that human being inevitably wage war under any particular circumstances.
Indeed Ashley in 1976 points out governments around the world has to use considerable force in order to mobilize their people for war.
Like all forms of social behavior welfare is product of society the varies in purpose and intensity from place to place.

Imran Bokhari in his article on August 26th, 2011, said that :
      “Our present and past rulers destroyed us completely as a Nation. We are now objects of ridicule all over the world. We, therefore, must throw these people and their agents out of our country and we must get our honor back. We are a great nation; we will either live with honor or will die. I request all my countrymen, let’s forget all our differences and emerge as a great united Nation, and don’t forget, hard work is the key to success and “Unity”, “Faith” and “Discipline” will take us above all other nations.”
