    The purpose of government is to promote the peace, freedom, and prosperity of the people.

    To achieve this purpose, the government must:

    * be legitimate; the people must agree on how to form a government and it must be done that way, and not any other way

    * be adaptable; the agreement must include under what conditions it can be amended, such as a 2/3 or 4/5 supermajority vote

    * respect and protect the rights of the people, and prosecute violations

    * enact laws to set boundaries on acceptable behavior, create obligations, and declare possible consequences for violations

    * enforce laws to regulate behavior

    * coordinate efforts among the people, their institutions, and organizations

    * seek out, remove, and prosecute corrupt government officials and employees

    * use a fair and just process to resolve conflict between people
