    What is your Idea for The Ideal Government

    As the title suggests

    What is the best government. Make it up, use a pre existing one.

    please give details

    Example "The Leviathan"

    Absolute to the max monarchy
    one person rules all, he/she choses who comes after them. Life long unless stated otherwise terms. Total control of economy, military, social institution. People have no rights, the government decides all. T.V's will monitor everyone. Victory brand gin for everyone. Tax rate is enough to allow all to live comfortablyish. Also MANATORY MILITARY SERVICE FOR 10 YEARS ONCE YOU HIT 15

    This is such a perfect moment to come up with something hilarious and quirky and I can't come up with anything.
    I'm a European federalist. Now you know.

    Robert A Heinleins starship troopers vision, want to say in how the country is run? Better be prepared to spend a few years serving it so you know what you are voting for.

    A government that protects the reproductive rights of women.

    A government that protects and enshrines the right of homosexuals to marry.

    A government that provides robust investment in infrastructure.

    A government that sets a simple, but very highly progressive system of taxation.

    A government that provides health care to all its citizens.

    A government that provides higher education tuition free.

    A government that is democratic while also protecting the rights of minorities.

    A government that preserves the environment by keeping the water and air clean.

    A government that subsidizes renewable sources of energy.

    A government that ensures adequate funding for scientific research, including stem cells.

    A government that provides substantial aid to those affected by natural disasters.

    A government that sets a minimum, but living wage.

    A government that provides support for the jobless, homeless, hungry, and mentally ill.

    A government that significantly limits the sale and distribution of firearms to the general public.

    A government that provides exceptional compensation for teachers of all grade levels.

    A government that focuses on reducing income inequality while still protecting individual freedoms.

    A government that is secular and that doesn't put religion above scientific evidence.

    There is no point in discussing it because there it will never happen, and there is no answer or idea.

    Read the book, very few (the elite) actually served in the military. There are more ways to serve your country than going to war, firefighter or paramedic, maybe even a low level Government clerk for example.

    No government made by humans will last forever or never go evil.

    So what i want is no government, informed well educated people with nothing over one another is best.

    Machines make everything there is no mandatory work, and people enjoy abundance.

    What we have now in the world is greed love of money and power over the ppl without money.

    Look at africa, what the modern world is doing there is exploiting it for everything it has its land its wealth its people.

    You seem very biased.

    The government you have is already secular and prefers evidence unless its to go to war.

    And Why would you have homeless people ? the homeless dont just go hey today ive decided to be homeless.
    The government failed to protect their rights from the banksters.

    A benevolent dictatorship with a wise dictator who knows all the right answers.

    But such a government would require the existence of a perfect and omniscient person.

    Monarchies are just so hit and miss. There are very few throughout history that I would have ever wanted to live under.

    I think the right balance is in between democracy and monarchy. I think 8 or 9 elected officials for terms of say 8-10 years. Similar to supreme court only no lifetime designations and appointed by the people.

    My brain hurts already.

    Wait, what? I seem biased? I thought this was a place to discuss opinion. I'm not doing some sort of scientific research here where I have to maintain objectivity.

    Also, I'm not sure why you say "the government you have is already this/that." I'm not talking about my government, I'm talking about the ideal government. Maybe mine is already secular, maybe it isn't. The ideal one should still be secular.

    Honestly it could be a variety of things but the main thing is getting people that aren't corrupt and follow strict ethical beliefs. Which is pretty damn hard to do considering how our world works and the fact that we all have human desires.
