Principles and Arrangements of Government

"These are the things to know"

Equality             good
Separation of Powers
Limited Government

What a great introduction to the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.  Watch them all.  I am enjoying them ever so much. He talks about these principles and arrangements in part 4 of the introduction.

If these principles are true, they are describing a being of such a kind that he may not be governed except with his consent. But, also, being of such a kind, he must be governed in these ways.  Because we are the kind of creature that will take advantage of each other, if we get a chance; either the many or the few of us.
