Civilizations, sociology, and cultures are an interesting topic for me. I find learning about systematic approaches to solving similar problems fascinating. In light of the current situation with Obama-care and the government shutdown. The governments with their records, taxes, and statistics are what keeps countries alive and well. By good governance it means knowing how much money we can allow to float in the system, and how much to tax the people, while also knowing what government programs should create and support. Yet, the problem lies in that government is responsible to the people, which can be good or bad, depending upon the spirit of the times. Thus in a democracy or representative government, the people and how they live their lives should also be held accountable. As when more people want more money, (or who and what ever that has sway over the people) it affects who is in power, and who has authority. When the people are greedy the government fails or is corrupt. Thus the world wants to grow yet expenses run high, how can we sustain society when the will of the people leads to failure and or corruption?
