The Three Crystals of Government

By | April 27, 2019

The Three Crystals of Government are as follows:

 

1. Crystal of Congress – Congress is held by the Senate and House of Representatives. It has the power to make laws;

2. Crystal of Judiciary – The Judiciary is held by the Supreme Court and lower courts. It has the power to judge if the law is right and its implementation;

3. Crystal of Executive – The Executive is held by the President, Vice President, and Government Agencies. It has the power to enforce the law.

None of them is in control of everything. When all these powers are held by one person, we are in trouble.(lahi)
