According to “https://study.com/academy/lesson/what-is-government-definition-role-functions.html#transcriptHeader”, “Government, …, is the authority that sets rules for a society, helps its members relate to one another and to others, and keeps it running smoothly, securely, and peacefully”.
I, alongwith 6 billion others, will have 6 billion & 1 reasons on what a government’s role is in society.
… But, why do we exist? Why are we living? Why did “societies” and “cultures” crop up?
It is for the promotion of general welfare of those societies & cultures. That’s what should be the purpose of any government and NOT a 20, 30, 40-page manifesto of the “ideal” society!!! How much of these manifestos actually materialize in your country?
There is NO perfect society or government by a long shot. However, I feel the county which comes closest to this 1-point “ideal” is Singapore! The country has remained neutral; it looks after it’s citizens and residents; and their education & health policies are almost second to none!
If all governments, including here in Pakistan, were to use this one-point agenda (general welfare of its citizens) as it’s rallying call, I think all policies – domestic or international – would correctly flow from this.
Like Star Trek, eventually, the quest for the human race should be furthering “knowledge” and what humanity can eventually develop into!
