"A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves." - Edward R. Murrow

Historically, the number of democratic governments has more than doubled in the past 30 years as communist states, military governments and traditional monarchies have waned.

For all practical purposes, governments are put in place to collect taxes, oversee the building of roads, sustain health care and education, maintain military forces, manage budgets, govern courts of law as well as law & order in the streets.

Even so, more government versus less government has been debated within modern democracies since they first arose in the 18th century.

Today, clashes within democratic forms of government are centered around separation of church & state, unfair taxation of the poor and middle classes, an independent press versus government 'spin', curbing abuses of big business including corporate lobbying and halting a prevailing trend toward secret government.
