  1. The idea of a “state” wasn’t as clear as it is today. I guess this is a reason why the government cares so much about us. In the past, rulers hardly take care of the welfare of the citizens, now they do, to the extent that some of us are irritated.

  2. Take care of us? What I expect from government are public services and infrastructure, plus a social safety net so I won’t have to step over infants on the sidewalk (which is common in some countries). Economies of scale plus efficiency.

    I know that sounds ideal, especially when we have been bombarded with the idea that government is an evil monolith. But bottom-up government, for the good of the people, is what this nation was founded for.

    I don’t want a government that ‘cares’ so much about me it reads all my email and follows my movements by GPS. And I certainly don’t want a government that spends all our tax dollars on resource wars and an illusory empire, when in fact we are broke.
