Federalism

 

“The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.”
- Benjamin Franklin-

 

Bejamin Franklin is one of the person who helped draft the Declaration of Independence and the U.S Constitution, negotiated the Treaty of Parris in 1783, which marked the end of the war, it is Revolutionary War. He was born on January 17th 1706 in Boston (www.biography.com). He is not only an politician, but he is an author and scientist too. People called him with “Founding Father” because he has big role in contributing in U.S.

The qoute talked to all people to pursue of happiness and told about federalism. Federalism is government system and state form in U.S. Federalism is a system of government in which a written constitution divides power between a central government and regional or sub-divisional governments. Both types of government act directly upon the people through their officials and laws (www.historylearningsite.co.uk). Political system in U.S does not use federalism, but republic. They use it because they admitted the existence of human right. They do this in a purpose because they wanna internalize every individual with sense of freedom. It will also embedded the feeling of nationalism.

I agree with the U.S system because they really upholding individual freedom. We as Indonesian must imitate it. I think that Indonesia not really care about human right, but i do not know now. In fact for the example, there is injustice of law in the community, corruptor and someone who’s steal sandals. Both of them had similiar punishment while the weight of the mistakes that they do much different. We can see from the example if the inequality in Indonesia is still very vulnerable situation. We as young generation must change the Indonesian’s mindset and give the spirit to uphold the human right in Indonesia.
