The Three Pillars

I believe that the three fundamental characteristics of a society I would want to live in are found in how it deals with the following three concepts:

I. Property Rights

II. The Rule Of Law

III. Education of the Young

[Yes, derivative of P.j. O'Rourke - don't know where he got it, but he only steals from the best...]

Note that you can have a wide variety of governmental structures that handle all of these admirably - and that no form of government guarantees that any of them will be handled well.

More later...
