What is Government
Perspective is simply the way we look at something.
William of Ockham, of the 14th century claims:
That if you have two competing ideas to explain the same phenomenon, you should prefer the simpler one.
With government, there are two primary competing ideas. One claims government is so complex that a person must rely upon countless writing and even more advisors. The other claims that government is as simple as running a small business.
For this perspective, we focus on the business aspect of government.
For the, government as business perspective, we look at four definitions from a digitized 1756 dictionary (corporate & corporation, government, community, and politicks). The definition screenshots follow.
1. The commonwealth; the body politick.
2. Common possession.
The community simply deals with the common possessions and is formed into a political body.
Politicks [sic] (1756)
The science of government; the art or practice of administring publick affairs.
Politics deals with the practice or the science of government and the handling of public affairs.
1. Form of Community with respect to the disposition of the supreme authority.
3. Administration of publick affairs.
With governments, we also see that they too are viewed as communities. But governments deal with public affairs; the will of the community. Governments also deal with the supreme authority; where commercial businesses and corporations deal with the will of the business owners and voting controllers.
Corporate & Corporation (1756)
United in a body or community.
A body politick, authorized to have a common seal, one head officer or more, able by their common consent, to grant or receive in law, any thing within the compass of their charter: even as one man.
Here, with these definitions, we simply see that corporations are viewed as a form of community and as political bodies.
There are two important corporate charters; which, among the owners, controllers, and primary corporate officers; these are the law within that corporation. They are enforceable only upon the parties to them.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America is the corporate founding charter that details the working relationship among the owners and voting controllers. The Constitution of the United States of America is the corporate bylaws that establish the contract with the key corporate officers. This is the law over government.
General confusion sets in about who is responsible for correcting the evils within and caused by the corporation employees we call government.
In the typical business setting, most people claim that the owners are ultimately responsible for what happens in the business and for what the business does to harm others.
