It would seem that Aia is more comfortable acting as a troll in her own thread than in dealing with any substance. Didn't this start as a comment on a signature?
Governments are necessary (A necessary evil, if you will).
Some are better for their citizens than others. Some have mechanisms to allow peaceful. positive change and some must be overthrown by force.
I doubt very much that Aia (Or any of us) can survive without some form of government.
"Center of existence" is a little too much, but government is here to stay.
I respect your desire to keep this conversation more global, but the fact is that we are the most influential (And powerful) government in existence, and the example we set is paramount.
Electing a black man as president would be a good start to restoring our reputation,and would have more influence in the near future that just about anything else we could do.
By the way: I would bet a large sum that every visitor is aware of the Constitution, and has a at least some admiration of its content and intent.
