We all have our governments we are all from many nations.
What we have in common still is "I".
So with this, I would like to add to the discussion,
of governing our selves.
If we as a people around the world yet in our own lands,
govern our selves, what need have we then of larger governments?
My child once talked of revolution,
over throw the government...
I told him that a revolution is like a circle,
you end up back where you started.
But rather than revolve,
The best way to put an end to government,
is to remove the need for it.
And to govern our selves.
This way he only needed to walk the path of peace,
to work on his part, of what he wanted.
There is a story I told him, though not my own nor am I sure I remember it correctly that I told him.
I was going to the top of the mountain.
On the way I saw several other people coming from the other direction.
So I asked them what the trail to the top was like.
"We dont know, we are on the way to the top of the mountain" replied one of them.
"No" I said "The mountain is THIS way" I said.
"No" they said "We are going to this way to the top",
"Fools! Your going the WRONG WAY" I said to them....
I could see the mountain right in front of me... they REFUSED to listen!
So they went their way and I went mine.
Sure that I would see them there at the top after they learned their lesson.
Several weeks later I made it to the top and,
there, were the fools,
already waiting for me to show up......
Had they listened to me,
they would have been behind me not ahead of me.
Each has our own path we must follow,
no matter my good intentions if someone asks for advice,
consider it carefully before taking it and seek also the advice of others,
then take the best path for you and your situation.
Issues are seldom black and white,
but full color, you, being in your situation, know more about it than someone outside of it.
So if someone comes for help or guidance, I will try to assist, but that may only be by providing a different point of view. It is your life, be you to the best you can,
you then offer something unique to this world, no one else can.
Our paths may be different,
And that needs to be okay.
For each of us, to reach the top of the mountain,
and learn what we need to learn, along the way.
So while I do feel it right, to outline ways we can live together,
together is the union of many individuals.
It starts with "i"
Society here most of my life,
said it was okay to burn gasoline.
I took the total world population, divided by the total estimated petroleum
further divided that by 100 (guessing at 100 generations require for the planet to produce this resource)
and came up with 1.8 barrels of oil.
And if I burned more than that, I was stealing.
Not by the laws of my government,
but by the laws "I" live by.
If I make my laws
for how I live, more strict than any government
they have little left to do!
If I want to put an end to welfare,
I watch out for the welfare of my neighbors.
The world of humanity, is made up of individual members,
It is US who needs to change,
But with my life, I hold I only have the right to tell myself how to live,
An example of a rule I hold,
in this iGovern,
Is that I have the right to do what ever I wish to do with my own life,
so long as that does not interfere with the rights of others to live as they seek to live with their lives.
