Governments; Masters of the World, for What
First world or third world governments: sounds like a powerful and relentless entities. They define the lives of millions of people; they can produce the greatest happiness; they make thousands of people flourish and prosper, creating jobs, industry and laws that help the expansion of a country and give space to the future through the arts for future generations.Or they can create the worst nightmares, leading people to revolts, torture, revolutions, militarism and political systems that are not based on the greatest good for all citizens. Thus creating the most brutal violations of Human Rights.But what is a government? ... a government is a group of individuals, just that, a group of people who actually carry a great responsibility, with the destiny of millions of people depending on their good or bad decisions. So one solution is to educate the individual. “There is a subject called “government.” In schools, they mostly teach “civics” which is merely how the current organization is put together. The real subject, “government” goes under various headings: political economy, political philosophy, political power, etc. The whole subject of “government” and how to govern can be quite precise, almost a technical science. If one is interested in having a better government, one that does not cause trouble, one should suggest it be taught at earlier ages in schools; one can also read up on it: it is not a very difficult subject if you look up the big words.” L. Ronald Hubbard.
