I was referring to the government in the context of popular conception - the group of people sitting in marble buildings in DC.
I agree with the distillation that ultimately "government" resides in moral conscience. However, when most people hear the word "government," I don't believe they relate it to moral conscience.
I can't hand or recite a dictionary to someone every time I talk. It would be inefficient and excessively verbose.
