The Role of the Government

What is the role of the government?

The role of the government is to govern the nation to ensure peace and prosperity of the nation.

For peace, the government must ensure the liberty of each and every individual so that each person can live in the best way he or she sees fit without injury to others.

For prosperity, the government must ensure that economic conditions are conducive for the creation of economic opportunities by the people themselves, and that there is equal access to economic opportunities by each individual. When the government dictates the economy, it must bear the brunt of economic failure.

The role of the government is not to rebuild and sustain a particular political party. A political party must serve the nation, not the nation the party.

Should hunger be the only legitimate reason for demanding national change?
