'I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically. Carried out, it finally amounts to this, which also I believe — "That government is best which governs not at all"; and when men are prepared for it, that will be the kind of government which they will have.'
Henry D Thoreau, 1849​

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this discussion has been postponed (most probably) until the new year.

Watch this space.
