What are the
ESSENTIALS
of Good Government?

Government is a centralized institution
which formulates, establishes and enforces laws
applicable to personal and collective conduct
within its administrative borders.

That is a generic definition of government.
What makes it good or bad?

BAD Government is

For the benefit of the few
at the expense of the many:
A Dictatorship
Absolute Monarchy
A Self-styled “Emperor”
or President-for-Life
with attendant well-paid supporters,
family and beneficiaries.

BAD Government is
Democracy in its current sense of a Majocracy,
under which a 51% majority,
influenced by big campaign expenditure
– can once installed impose
its class, religious or sectarian interests
over the remaining minority
– can ensure its re-election
through irresponsible deficit-spending

BAD Government is
“partisan”. It favours a specific
class, religious or sectarian interest
at the expense of others.

GOOD Government is
founded on universal, readily recognizable
principles of peace, fairness, and justice.
GOOD government
prevents injury between people in any form,
ensuring protection, without oppression.

GOOD Government is Democratic.
It is supportive of
– People Empowerment,
– Participation in the formulation of laws
– fully open and accountable government

GOOD Government is
subject to a Constitutional Framework
establishing
– obligations
– limitations, and
– procedures
with respect to the
formulation, establishment
and enforcement laws,
and ensuring government accountability,
openness, and productive efficiency.

Where there is Injury, there must be Protection.
Where there is no Injury, there is neither cause nor justification
for the interference of law and the exercise of its power.

GOOD GOVERNMENT IS
PROTECTION WITHOUT OPPRESSION.
