World History GO Notes – Chapter 6 6 Compare Israel’s theocracy to at least two other forms of human government. Which is the best form? Why? Israel's theocracy was a government ruled by God Himself. Other forms of government include democracy (rule by the many or the common people), oligarchy (rule by the few rich), monarchy (rule by one), aristocracy (rule by the nobles), and tyranny (a bad form of one-man rule). The best form was Israel's theocracy, because there can be no ruler more just, more loving, and more protecting than God Himself.
