    I kind of have some points to make an Agreement argument but I need some points for an Against argument.
    I'm not sure I would do it as a simple for and against argument.

    I would probably look at the way government was meant to operate in the first section making note of things like taxation , wars and religion.

    I would then confront the question as to whether it worked like that and instances of where personality became significant influencers in key decisions.

    I would then compare that with periods or areas where government ran smoothly.

    I would then make a decision on the question having weighed up the evidence.
