I'm hoping that's a joke and if it wasn't I see the public school provided to you from the government has failed you.

Governments are for governing, not necessarily providing.


That's the definition we learned in Global and that was on tests I'm not saying that's what it does but that's what it is supposed too do.


A government is supposed to do whatever the people who formed it want it to do.

QFT.

More precisely, governments and laws exist for maintaining public order to provide a social/political atmosphere that promotes growth and prosperity.






Whoa . . . did WoL and I just agree on something.  Weird.

Not necessarily, governments are supposed to follow the general will of the people within the bounds of the existing constitution.  (At least democratic based one's are . . . there are obviously many non-democratic governments out there whose main aim is their own self-perpetuation for the advantage of the people running it.) 

Enough digression.

Governments many times do not do whatever people want because doing so would infringe upon the rights of other members of the same society.  This forum is rife with debates that exemplify this.

I in no way made any indication as to what type of government the aforementioned theoretical people would be forming.

You are assuming the government is one like our own, which actually bothers with such petty things as the rights and welfare of the masses.

How off topic am I? I forget what this thread is about. Weed?
