Saying it’s ok to drive on whichever side of the street you like doesn’t work. We need conventions to avoid getting in the way of each other and we need government to advance social growth. The idea that “government is the problem” is being exploited for political advantage, by self-centered politicians who lack moral character. However inappropriate and illogical the tactic might be, it is effective. It wakes up the aimless, disenchanted and confused and it puts them into an agitated, ready for action state of mind. Just point them in any direction and turn them loose. They will do something disruptive.
This tactic is sinister, intentional and unacceptable. It is a threat to our stability and security as a nation and a people. We are a socio-economic federal republic complex. We are held together by common purpose, spirit, desire and law. We use government to keep us on track. We are in this together. We are the government. We are not the enemy. We are the people whose purpose we serve.
