I don’t believe that many social problems will ever be resolved through legislative power, and authority given the circumstances of today. For most issues, legislation only remedies the problem – but I believe that there is evidence to show that legislation has done little in terms of actually resolving any problems. It is my firm belief that all forms of American government, at this time, lack philosophical structure. I believe that law is important, governance is important, but I will not argue on the sizes and scopes of federal government. Reducing the size of the Federal government only allows state governments to thus grow in size – it’s an oscillation of sorts, and for this reason alone I feel that it’s counter-productive to argue for or against sizes of Federal Government, or the injustices of one over the other when American History is dominated by severe injustices on the part of both – but the most, arguably, by that of state governments.
In order to truly resolve any social issue, there must also be a shift in society. One might call it a moral shift, but morality is largely defined by social standards, opinions, and customs. So, I don’t believe that ‘morality’ is the correct term to use in this statement. Acceptance, and tolerance ,maybe.
