I like to read the signature of my fellow Daniloggers. Some are funny, some are inspiring, some just make me think... what in the world?
It is in the thinking part that I engaged when I read this morning the signature of one of our elderst posters. In Ancient Dragon two part signature it says:
"If the people cannot trust their government to do the job for which it exists - to protect them and to promote their common welfare - all else is lost."
Attributed to: Barack Obama
I don't follow the man Obama; I must assume he really said that. But definitely it has the ring of truth as something that would come out of the mouth of a politician.
"All else is lost?". Really?
Must government be the soul of our lives, that if they loose their perspective, everything else is lost?
When did we lose our perspective? Isn't it OURS, the responsibility to protect ourselves and to promote our own welfare?
Can we not exist outside the "all caring, all protecting hand" of government?
Just thinking aloud!. What an arrogant statement, to which I can only yell in silence: Stay away from my life!
No, I don't have any new utopia form of government in mind. I am just reasoning. Every one has the need of using the toilet in the trans course of the day. Toilets are necessary for comfort and hygiene. But as important as they are, we don't make them the center of our daily life, nor the center of our homes, regardless of how many times we go to it; unless we are SICK.
Pardon my vulgar analogy, if you will.
