2. Why do you suppose such differences evolve?
3. What is a nongovernment organization, and what does it have to do with government? Name one NGO and include what kind of rights do they espouse, what kind of laws do they support, and what kind of laws do they oppose? Why?
4. How are these differences (between the governments in Question 1) reconciled?
