Some discussion on law and sociology

Question

Posted · Report post

If you define democracy as the majority of people of a group or nation determining the way their government is run, I propose there is no such thing as a non-democracy. Can you see why?

But govorment is there for a reason I guess.

I never said it was likely. I just said it would be the best form of government.

I disagree, the best government is lack-there-of.

As would I, as would Thomas Jefferson. It's too bad we can't all just get along...

I think it was Ben Franklin or Thomas Jefferson that said that "A Free Society Must Be Ethical."

If that were the case, ie, everyone was ethical and respectful of each other and we ALL agreed on everything, then yes, no government would be the best scenario.

However, that is not the case, neither here, not anywhere in the entire history of the world, not in Eden (we know how obedient Adam and Eve were, dont we?) or even in Heaven (God is the supreme ruler and no one questions that, lest they be cast down like lucifer).

Hence, government is a necessary evil.

oh well, wishful thinking.
