Re: Government

A government 'of the People, by the People and for the People' is not just an ideal, but a realistic, obtainable goal.

Ideally, you would want to have the greatest number of people made eligible to vote, under the least number of restrictions (if there is any hope for truly representative government.)

Then, ideally, those ordinary people would be informed sufficiently, voluntarily, by their freedom of access to information generally, to vote for honest and trustworthy representatives who possess the necessary knowledge required to make informed decisions on the range of complex matters controlled by government.

Power to the People! If I may, I would like to suggest a few answers. The beginning of hope for realistic solutions is in our very language.
