Government

One of the earliest lessons we must learn as children is that we are not free to do whatever we want. The inhibitions imposed upon us immediately teach us the pain of restriction, whether they are for our own protection, punishment, or simply the arbitrary will of a capricious parent. Throughout the ages, mankind has looked to kings for leadership within the clan, tribe or nation. Because kings are mere men and are thus fallible (and not infallible, regardless of their own claims to the contrary), the royal institution has always been abused and corrupted by men. While it is true that history is replete with examples of good, just and wise kings, the modern world has recognized that the system is far too unstable because it stands upon the fallible foundation of imperfect humanity. People of will throughout all time, in all ages have despised being ruled over by cruel and corrupt fools. Certainly, democracy as developed by the ancient Greeks gives us an insight into the hopelessness of autocracy, but democracy is ultimately impotent because the will of an uninformed or misinformed majority will always lead to disaster. As enlightened souls continue to fight for freedoms and personal liberties that the tyrant would take away, new problems have emerged. Increased freedoms of the populace encourages the rise of the demagogues. Economic freedom leads to oligarchy, to which Sylvain Maréchal remarked during the French Revolution, "Merchants have become aristocrats, a thousand times more dreadful than the feudal nobility." We continually watch with horror as centuries of sacrifices upon the altar of freedom are slowly but surely being erased. We know that anarchy is the enemy to an enlightened society and yet, anarchy will be the result if the human race proves too immature for self-governance. It is our fervent hope that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
