"A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor and bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government." ~Thomas Jefferson


No government in the history of mankind -- including, and especially this one from the very beginning -- has ever operated in the above proscribed manner. Thomas Jefferson's musing's of perfection probably stemmed from what his own ideal form of government might be; but being the sharp cookie he was, and as worldly a man as They come, doubtful ever really believed that such a government was even remotely possible, given the core nature of human leaning's towards chronic hypocrisy, contradiction, selfishness, and general mischief.


"Governments are a mirror of the people They govern, if the people collectively have no honor, then neither does the government that rules Them." "No government is the best alternative for life in general on this planet."


Governments foster, thus encourage, laziness, ignorance, and dependence, which intern give rise to every other aberrant, sloven and degenerate behavior imaginable. In a perfect world, where the majority of people acted honorably, never lied, or didn't think They should have Their own way 100% of the time, there would be no need for government. Governments exist as a direct result of collective ignominy on the part of the people who know instinctively that this is all wrong, but would rather bury the shame of it all into believing government a necessary part of Their lives, rather than address Their own complicit contribution of supporting and parroting  perpetual-dependent-victim-existence.
