    A talk about the illusion of good government U.S. style.

    The myths being taught about good government. The government pursues the public good and provides for all of us. Private entities only provide for themselves. Only good government can rescue us from child labour, poverty, misery and the rest of it. The voluntary sector provides.

    But what in fact happens with the governments in this world?

    Little fiefdoms are created which seek to perpetuate themselves and keep the flow of money and lucre in their direction

    Could his argument also be applied to the UK government?

    In short, yes because they have implemented many policies from America
    they are often clueless and out of touch, they are only the temporary guardians of the rights we have , they are supposed to look after our health,wealth and education failing in all these I think it's about time we stopped voting Lab/Con and vice versa their era is over.
