Types of Government, Explained

I often wonder why something so important, is so hard to learn and teach. 

Understanding how governments work is perhaps as important to freedom as the ability to read. But the concept is so difficult. Teaching it to 7th grader makes it even more difficult. 

I think it has to do with vocabulary, experience, and the fact that no country's government is purely one form or another, but a mixture of systems.  Further muddying the issue is Georgia's attempt to separate government systems and citizen participation into categories.

The video below is very straight-forward. It is not easy to understand, but if you hear it a few times, you'll begin to get the point of the video.
