      Nov 13 2012: the same can be told about a good monarchy. the question would be how to ensure we have a good one as opposed to a bad one. whether the system itself tends to be good or bad. what is the expected time evolution of a system.

      alas, democracies tend to get worse and worse with time. they tend to start good, after they are established, and slowly deteriorate from that point on.

        I strongly disagree. The democracy in which I live is far better off since its beginning in 1867

      Dec 5 2012: The fallacy in big government is simply this. People are different. People are interested in different things. The only way you can represent all the people is through small governement and free trade. We should not be obstructed by government to persue our individual dreams. Acheivement is not earned on the merits of others, It's earned by the individual. If I'm working towards a goal there should be a clear path to it. I should not have to worry about what the prime rate is tomorrow or what new regulations were signed behind closed doors.
