From our perspective; "The ruler who rules least, is best!" The elector system before the decimation brought about by the catholic pagans of Rome, was a very efficient method of government, a system which allowed the continual rule of capable men, somewhat like the American, who if proven incompetent could be replaced. In the United States the electoral system is very simular, where the people never actually elect anyone, but if a politician gets too out of line, he can be deposed without violence.

Many a conflict entered into by the great powers was questionable, seemingly motivated by gain than righteousness. Do we adopt the rule of Mussolini's twentieth century philosophy; the 'military logic of fascism', or learn the lesson that Mussolini hanging from his toes, and ancient imperial Rome learned; 'Rome makes a desert, and calls it peace.' Where is ancient Rome now? What was Mussolini's end? Men are flawed, what else would government be?
|One of the oldest symbols of the Divine Right to Rule. Mankind has been plagued by bad government for far too long. How much government does he really need. The Biblical texts are clear on this, man does not need much. God is your King, and Judges can mete out the law. God warns; 'do not have a King'. Samuel says, 'God is your King'. The people complained of the corruption of the Judges, why had they not thought about the corruption of rulers when they asked to have, ' a king we can see, as other nations have'.|
The obsession with war was often child-like and irresponsible amongst a group of men who may have been bullied by domineering parents through their formative years. Often rulers lose touch with reality, in any political system. Train for war, struggle to maintain the peace, would be the true goal of any ruler, along with a balanced budget and the needs of his people taken care of. If the people cannot easily afford the basic comforts of life the patriarch is not keeping up with his responsibilities, and certainly not in a position to wage war.
Frequently so called terrorist attacks on major powers within their own borders, are used as a vehicle for usurping the rights and freedoms of the very same citizens of that country. A responsible citizenry will aid in weeding out terrorists. Repression only leads to rebellion. The best response is limited. Security should only be to determine if weapons or explosives are present in sensitive areas. Real ID acts are pure fascism and should not be tolerated by a free citizenry. Wo haben sie laden, became the most terrifying sentence in German under the Nazi's. It could be translated in modern American as' I need to see your ID'. It refers to your permission to travel.
