The Primary Duty of the Government is to Entertain the Governed

Knowing life to be short, labor hard, and love duplicitous our wise forefathers created an institution of government to distract us from our cares and entertain us with their foolish braggadocio and venality.  For brief periods government may stray from its purpose and wander after the pedestrian goals, but the wisdom of the democratic system always punishes these joyless plodders and replaces them with those able to see their duty and answer to it.

“The American people will tolerate being stolen from, lied to, or sent to the slaughter in picaresque duchies or exotic climes, but they will not long suffer to be bored.” – John Quincy Adams
