"From the darkness, sleeping light." Formerly luminus dormiens. Lux pacis, light of peace.

Quote: "Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." --Bill Watterson, cartoonist, Calvin and Hobbes


Let this be heretofore known and list as facts of understanding in rules of government and governance, relationships between individuals of the same state, of different state, and of different civilization, and understanding of the natural unenlightenment of men and women in the world:

We recognize that our greatest desire in a government is that it will do good and suppress evil, that it helps keep the country united, that it will take care of us that are law-abiding and punish those who abide them none.

However, the natural state is disorder, and order in chaos must from disorder arise. It is natural too, that a government capable of doing good, must be equally capable of doing something opposite, and that is bad. We recognize that a system of government that allows benevolence to show must by nature admits malevolence.

As such, individuals such as James Madison, who framed the Constitution of the United States in such intricate layers as never been done before, tried to conceive of a government not that the government would filter out the vices and let in the enlightened to protect the people, but to make the government as limited as possible, so that they may not trample upon the rights of the people.
