Good Governance Is An Inside Job
As parenting improves, the size of the government will naturally decrease.
For much of my life, I have heard nothing from Republicans but the terrible abuses of government. I have only heard them say that government is bad, the private sector is good. Anything the government can do, the private sector can do better. But few of them mention that the government, like the private sector, is run by people. And fewer of them are willing to admit that people learn how to behave as adults from their parents and caretakers.
