I don't know if any government of man, by man, can be good or isn't actually doomed to grow bad no matter what.
The one thing I know, though : both The Golden Rule and "Thou Shall Not Steal" have been, and still are, attributed to a God of Love.
I've yet to see anything anywhere as close to goodness in a government devised by men (for all others) who ignore - i.e., disregard - both of the above, precisely.
Or I missed it.
"If you press me to say why I love Him, I can say nothing but just because He is He, and I am I."

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
"To study and not think is a waste. To think and not study is dangerous." -- Confucius
