A perfect government is difficult to define, and even more difficult to conduct- perfection is the most illusive element to sustain once achieved!
Were there to every be a perfect government, it would be immediately imperfect- government, unless we, if anyone would begin to expound thoughts on my religions in government forum, define with alternate definitions, is a system which creates a pretense of protecting the people of a said political division- that is to say, it serves to disband mass murder, and all sorts of human atrocities from rendering society obsolete and an infernal hell. When in the protection of any subject, there is consistently an element of power or some form of force which is applied in order to exhibit the power with adequate magnitude to control masses, or a populace. With this power, in eventuality protrudes a figure who is eminent when compared to all the rest- this eminence is defined by their eventual power in government based on this entities ability and action of enforcing laws. Without exerted power, humans may never be controlled, and political efforts are rendered completely hopeless and futile. Once an eventual leader or superior figure is established, the masses begin to revolt, based on the inherent human lust for freedom, and our innate sense of oppression or knowledge of restrictions or hinderances placed upon ourselves. With this knowledge, then there develops opposition, and soon, the government is contending with a large mass and will be prodded and probed for weakness until it succumbs to human will and persistence, one of our most endearing qualities, mind you! Now, amidst the deteriorating rubble of a fallen and failed government, the process cyclicly begins to reform, as in the continual water cycle, and the entire ordeal ensues once more. Apply the latter to almost any situation and you should find that it is relevant. Government seeks to control wild beast of ideology, idealism, self-concern, and general ignorance, which, in combination, serve as a volatile combination to corrode the basis of government. A perfect government is a futile notion, because government by definition must be perfect. The human race will not allow itself to be ruled, we are an irrevocably begun system which thrives upon external and internal influence and which fluctuates tremendously. Like the uranium atom, eventually, when too many protons are "fired" into the nucleus, the coagulating mass will eventually split, and such it is with government. Government is a terrible wish, especially in democracy, which merely endows the masses with an extensive ability to affect their government and lends them to believe in freedoms which are insane and improbable. Government is also like the commercial industry- there is never any explanation regarding the functionality of the product, it is simply the consumer's prerogative to invest in the product- such it is as well with government. But fine, chase lustily after your perfect government, for you might as well begin now, for in the world of quantum mechanics, you are bound to walk through a wall, at least once, if you repeatedly attempt the feat millions upon millions upon billions of times.
Why search for perfect government when we know government is consistently dysfunctional- let us seek for more prudent manners of "governing" and let us remember to distinguish between "government" and "government", for they are two separate notions and concepts- I would prefer to find the perfect system for "governing". (Council of elvin elders, spiritual guidance, or even oppression by inhuman forces- however even this eventually leads to the derivative of human development and human involvement- perhaps could we reverse the flow and continuity of life and evolution since the dawn of the Earth in entirety, everything would be much easier.
