To Be Governed

For example. A computer is a very complicated thing. Try building one from scratch.

A car is essentially a lot less complicated, even though it is bulkier. Try building one.

Time to go back to horse and buggy. (Does anyone remember how to build a buggy from scratch? Or a saddle?) Why? Because if we don't, we will always have to trust someone else to build it for us... at least to some extent. And when they build it for us, we will want to watch, inspect, spy upon, direct, law-drive, number, regulate, enroll, indoctrinate, preached at, control, check, estimate, value, censure, command, etc.,what they do, simply to protect ourselves from things that we don't know about.

Are we creatures who have the right and the wisdom and the virtue to do so?
