What each of us has with each other and with government is a RELATIONSHIP! We are forced to live in this world together and that necessitates a social
structure. We HAVE to relate; either positively or negatively.
The best and healthiest relationship is one based on trust, honesty, openness, loyalty, care and kindness. Well that is the measure I use anyway.
If a government's relationship with its citizens is based on some of the above aspects of civility and humanity then it can not go wrong. If people
are abused by government this will create friction in the relationship.
What else is there to say to governments? Only that they should not lie, steal from us, not care for us or abuse us.
Where there are no lies there can be no conspiracy. I would go as far to say that this current phenomenon of lack of trust in authority is a result of
bad treatment, too much manipulation, too many lies that don't add up. People are very concerned at the severe imbalances in our world; of power and
authority abusing the rights of the individual.
We are at the stage of at least a healthy dialogue out in the open. It's a start. Where it goes to from here depends on the good will of us all.
