: I had to look this quote up for a class. What are your opinions on it? Origins, etc.

: "Fovernment is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem."

Government isn't the problem. The people are the problem. I am referring to people in a democratic society who don't learn their civics lessons, don't research the issues, and don't vote. Or they vote for a pretty face, not a leader.

"Every nation has the government it deserves." (Letter to X, 1811) Joseph de Maistre (1753-1821)
