I think that a government that governs least is the best way to run a country, I do not suppose stripping the entire government away but a lot of it. The government should be there to enforce the law on criminals who wish to harm other citizens. The citizens should be able to chose what they do for work, where they live, how they live, etc without government intervention unless that said person has done harm on another human being. The individual citizen should be created equally, and if anyone from any social group commits a crime they should be punished to keep the equality, but keep the laws to a minimum so people are allowed to choose what they want to do. With regulations of course, just on obvious atrocities like murder, or any other form of harming someones body or identity. A government that would command your respect would be a monarchy or a dictatorship because they are often corrupt rulers. A monarch or a dictator would want you to see them as a godly figure and that in itself is demanding your respect, and that is not the way to go for a government. A government should have respect going both ways. You respect the laws and the government will respect your lifestyle whatever it is. Most protests these days do not really hit the mark like they used to, they aren’t really about the same kind of important subjects that Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. were protesting for. They were protesting for rights for their people, and nowadays we have people on both sides of the political spectrum protesting gas prices in yellow vests. What is more important? The price of gas or the rights of an entire race? And the big difference is that these protests turned violent over not being heard when Gandhi and King were never heard for years yet they never turned violent so protests have certainly changed. At the end of the day the protests in France are taking a step back to the days of the French Revolution and that is certainly ineffective. If Gandhi and King can do this without hurting anyone then they can get their word across that they aren’t being heard a different way. Besides they are just hurting their fellow man in the process.
