Self-government

The Contrast

We honor and prefer personal responsibility because the more power the government has, the less freedom the people have.   Believe politicians when they promise that they will solve social problems because it is easier to have the government force others to sacrifice and change than to do anything yourself

Make government as small as possible so as to empower the people to solve their own problems via the private sector and local charitable organizations.Make government bigger and more powerful to try to fix social problems.  Pass more laws which end up punishing law-obeying citizens and rewarding law breakers.

“We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.”

– Ronald Reagan

Even though as Jesus said, “You will always have poor people,” local efforts will improve education and personal discipline and the best possible progress will be made. Problems never get solved.  They only get worse.  The people suffer.  Politicians keep lying.  People keep voting for them and giving them ever more power.
