Government is a steering, a balancing of human social systems. This cannot be done
today without handlangers, luistervinke, impimpi, shamans, priests, actuaries, enforcers,
executioners, executives, thugs, human resources practitioners, spies, spin doctors,
assassins, bankers, lawyers and those faith-based forecasters we name economists. Power,
by definition, has to be shared with all these and more, if humans are to be governed. All
power sails in a sea of anarchy; all legitimacy and all constitutions are the products of
revolution and mayhem; all peace results from war.
