Governing Yourself

Good government is peaceful government.

If you were managing your life vindictively and trying to protect and take over assets which were not your own, you would be continually at war with everyone else.

You would have to manage your wars.

And what if you couldn’t interest anyone else in them?

You would have to create the kinds of disturbances that would rivet everyone else’s attention on your wars.

If instead, you had welfare for everyone as your motivation, you would have peaceful relationships with everyone else.

This would allow resources for everyone which would allow them to come up with peaceful commerce and peaceful solutions among everyone else.

A competent government manages its resources for peace and spreads this philosophy throughout the world.

There are a few governments who are doing this.

Mismanagement of resources for a few is a ridiculously self-serving and limited outlook on a world where we could otherwise do so much good.

Let’s move ourselves individually toward this goal, and let it trickle upward to our world leaders.
