"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Yes, that's destructive, why can you not understand this? Do you want people to vote on a reality TV show and determine how much you should be spending on your kids?
Wait, that's not realistic. Do you want someone to force you to PAY FOR the reality TV show,that then votes on how you spend your money on your children? It's destructive, and aside from war/conquest has probably destroyed more civilizations in human history than any other reason.
Government should support our freedoms and ensure them, and check power. That's about it. The rest, is up to us. that is, you, and me, to go out and bust ass to make a buck in the manner that best suits our goals and dreams..(or the nagging of our wife), whatever.
