Of The People?
The only truly legitimate purpose of government is to protect the weak against the tyranny of domination by the strong. To the extent that government substitutes the rule of law for the law of the jungle, it is valid. The further the government strays from this underlying justification, the more suspect it becomes, and the more closely it should be subjected to our intense scrutiny.
Never forget that the alpha males and females on this planet have not changed their spots over the recorded history of the human race. One can search a long time for an example of the individual who rose to power only to voluntarily relinquish it. A free society remains so only if it vigilantly guards itself from the predators within.
