Not to speak of indirect effects, the direct meddling of the public authorities has no necessary limits but those of human existence; and the influence of government on the well-being of society can be considered or estimated in reference to nothing less than the whole of the interests of humanity.
Establishment of the Bougainville Public Services Commission. Why should men not some day feel that is it worth a blood-tax to belong to a collectivity superior in any respect.
But the principles which men profess, on any controverted subject, are usually a very incomplete exponent of the opinions they really hold.
When so many feel obscurely the want of such a doctrine, and so few even flatter themselves that they have attained it, any one may without presumption offer what his own thoughts, and the best that he knows of those of others, are able to contribute towards its formation.
Having satisfied ourselves on these two points, and ascertained the form of government which combines the greatest amount of good with the least of evil, what further remains is to obtain the concurrence of our countrymen, or those for whom the institutions are intended, in the opinion which we have privately arrived at.
The mere details, and practical organisation, it may choose; but the essence of the whole, the seat of the supreme power, is determined for it by social circumstances.
By some minds, government is conceived as strictly a practical art, giving rise to no questions but those of means and an end. To find the best form of government; to persuade others that it is the best; and having done so, to stir them up to insist on having it, is the order of ideas in the minds of those who adopt this view of political philosophy.
There have been states of society in which even a monarchy of any great territorial extent could not subsist, but unavoidably broke up into petty principalities, either mutually independent, or held together by a loose tie like the feudal: Prosecution for misconduct in office.
If we speak of the fear of emancipation from the fear-regime, we put the whole situation into a single phrase; fear regarding ourselves now taking the place of the ancient fear of the enemy. And, secondly, the character of a government or set of political institutions cannot be sufficiently estimated while we confine our attention to the legitimate sphere of governmental functions.
Purposes of the Bougainville Ombudsman. It is a quality in which different nations, and different stages of civilisation, differ much from one another. Order would find a more suitable place among the conditions of Progress; since, if we would increase our sum of good, nothing is more indispensable than to take due care of what we already have.
It may be so great as to make the form of government work very ill, without absolutely precluding its existence, or hindering it from being practically preferable to any other which can be had. Progress of any kind includes Permanence in that same kind; whenever Permanence is sacrificed to some particular kind of Progress, other Progress is still more sacrificed to it; and if it be not worth the sacrifice, not the interest of Permanence alone has been disregarded, but the general interest of Progress has been mistaken.
Then let us take a case purely political, where religion, so far as concerned at all, was chiefly on the losing side. Those wars were purely piratical. The same might have been said, though somewhat less absolutely, of the barbarians who overran the Roman Empire.
The new charter dropped Spanish as an official language. Functions of National Salaries and Remuneration Commission. The government of a country, it is affirmed, is, in all substantial respects, fixed and determined beforehand by the state of the country in regard to the distribution of the elements of social power.
There is novelty, however, in the fact of bringing them together, and exhibiting them in their connection; and also, I believe, in much that is brought forward in their support.
The theory of government would thus be built up from the separate theorems of the elements which compose a good state of society. All agreed to a republican form of government grounded in representing the people in the states.
It holds, in short, universally, that when Order and Permanence are taken in their widest sense, for the stability of existing advantages, the requisites of Progress are but the requisites of Order in a greater degree; those of Permanence merely those of Progress in a somewhat smaller measure.
The word "do" is to be understood as including forbearances as well as acts. The mental attribute which seems exclusively dedicated to Progress, and is the culmination of the tendencies to it, is Originality, or Invention.
On the other hand, neither are those who speak of institutions as if they were a kind of living organisms really the political fatalists they give themselves out to be. But I do not believe that peace either ought to be or will be permanent on this globe, unless the states, pacifically organized, preserve some of the old elements of army-discipline.
A government is said to preserve order if it succeeds in getting itself obeyed. When it is said that the strongest power in society will make itself strongest in the government, what is meant by power. Again, a people must be considered unfit for more than a limited and qualified freedom, who will not co-operate actively with the law and the public authorities in the repression of evil-doers.
What, for example, are the qualities in the citizens individually which conduce most to keep up the amount of good conduct, of good management, of success and prosperity, which already exist in society. Whatever qualities, therefore, in a government, tend to encourage activity, energy, courage, originality, are requisites of Permanence as well as of Progress; only a somewhat less degree of them will on the average suffice for the former purpose than for the latter.
It suggests, in truth, ubiquitous inferiority. The Constitution of the Autonomous Region of Bougainville. Preamble. WE, THE PEOPLE OF BOUGAINVILLE, under the sovereignty of God. Conscious of the noble heritage and customs of our Ancestors and of the freedom and autonomy which they enjoyed in time immemorial.
Until now, only a handful of Constitutional lawyers have had background access to the "Real Constitution" that our founders created. The information in this new program will practically guarantee you'll win every debate with Progressives and Socialists of every stripe on the meaning and intent of our country's founding legal document.
REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT. by John Stuart Mill. PREFACE.
THOSE who have done me the honour of reading my previous writings will probably receive no strong impression of novelty from the present volume; for the principles are those to which I have been working up during the greater part of my life, and most of the practical. The Moral Equivalent of War William James Introduction.
The war against war is going to be no holiday excursion or camping party.
