Government DefinedSubmitted by kyletownsend on Thu, 06/26/2014 - 10:59
There has been considerable discussion in other threads concerning the definition of "government."
Also, even though the words "government" and "state" are often used interchangeably, they presumably have distinct meanings.
I would suggest that each interested person offer their definition of "government" and (in a separate post) of "state."
Then, we can see if there is any clear consensus about the best definitions.
Vote for the definition you like the best by voting it up.
PS: Obviously, don't add your own definition if someone else has already added it. This would muddle the voting.
PPS: It would probably be best if everyone also vote down all other definitions that are not their top choice, since some people will undoubtedly do this. It would muddle the results if this is not done consistently. Also, you are free to change your votes whenever a new definition is added.
