One of the principal functions of government is to justify its authority to uphold and preserve its conception of societal order and harmony. How social order is achieved is dependent on the status of the countrys internal political environment at any given time, and this is executed with different levels of control. Different countries have varying levels of government control. Economies that are considered stable with robust constitutional customs are normally typified by measured restraint. Countries that have fragile constitutional customs in most cases demonstrate low levels of restraint (Petersmann, 2008.). There are different types of mode of governance. some are characterized by authoritarian controls by the government, and some are democratic in nature. Numerous arguments have featured prominently arguing the possibility of a moral compatibility between authoritarian modes of governance with democratically formed institutions and principles.
