Latin derivative: Government comes from two latin words -“gubernare” meaning to control and “mente” meaning mental or mind. Therefore, it can de defined as the controlling of many or control of mind.
Definition: Government is a body of people that sets and administers public policy, and exercises executive, political and sovereign power through customs, institutions and laws within a state. It exercises political direction and control over the actions of the members, citizens or inhabitants of communities, societies and states. It has been said that government is necessary in order to maintain a civilized society, however all you have to do is look at the state of our world today to question this premise.
Our nation was defined by The Declaration of Independence, stating that “all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” But have we truly consented to the ways of our government, or did we give up, lose hope, and therefore interest, since so many of us have worked to live instead of lived to enjoy the fruits of our labors?
If people would only let go of this fantasy that the government is like a trusted parent, responsible for our welfare, and operating in our best interests! We all know that the government’s control over us is oppressive, and that power and greed are the true motivators of action within the White House. But we must take responsibility, for we did not tend to our nation. We got tired, lazy, and unmotivated but don’t forget that there are far more of us than the global elite. If we broke our dependency on this institution, educated ourselves on our legal rights, cooperated with the world as a united citizenry, and recognized that fear itself has enslaved us, we could break free of the shackles we have all worn for a millennium. The time is now to focus on a new world of peace and freedom for EVERY PERSON on earth.
Below is a compilation of websites that cover much of what the governments are doing today and exposing their ineptitude and apathy towards the very people they claim to be working for. It is time for us to wake up and take back our power so that we can live like our forefathers had envisioned. The time is now to terminate the government’s “unwarrantable jurisdiction over us”.
