Limited government? No

Limited government? No government?

I think we tend to think about government in very narrow terms. If we understand government according to the truest meaning of the word, then we should all welcome government.

When two people come to an agreement, they are "governed" by the terms of the contract; this is no less "government" than the central authorities that are the focus of so much legitimate criticism.

Rather than dividing government into degrees of "more" and "less", I think that we should argue about government in terms of its kind, the type of government it is.

Have you ever thought that perhaps we do not need less government, maybe we need more? We should be governed by freedom, by voluntary contracts, by property rights, by morality--we need MORE of this type of government; I think that it IS possible to be "governed" by liberty.
