I think that is a run-on sentence
Does it not depend on the type of government? Can we say yay or nay to that statement without knowing the form of government>?
I'm not sure I see where you are going with this. Are you talking about whether I agree that it could define any government in particular? I believe the government should be limited in its powers as the US constitution has established and that more of the people's will should be handled within communities, at local levels.
If there isn't a better way to say whatever it is that quote is trying to say, then English as a language is a dismal failure.
My thoughts exactly.
It sounds like typical bureaucratese without any underlying values.
I hate those.
Look Bfgrn, I can put quote at the end of my posts too!

Hell has frozen, I agree with RW. That statement was soooooo long I forgot what the beginning said.
The last part of the sentence makes me smell a rat. I can see it floating in the air.
I don't think so.
I see government as a compact between people to protect life, property and liberty from those would take them away from us. It is not outside the people, and it is not a process. It is not a way for the majority to extract stuff from the minority. It is a form of mutual obligation very limited in scope.
Separate names with a comma.
