#185 / The Fourth

Giving up on government (and aren't we all tempted to do that) is to repudiate the revolutionary legacy by which the United States was brought into existence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed ....

Reclaiming our government, not giving up on it, is the assignment for today.
