Hi Craig Weinberg
OK, govts can finally fail, when the people find that
they can legislate their own welfare.


Or when the people realize that their government has just become a tool of the rich and powerful to increase their wealth and power; in which case the people revolt and overthrow the government (c.f. Thomas Paine).

Unless the population is disarmed

The people don't have to be armed to overthrow their government. It depends on the culture; but revolutions were successful in the USSR, Poland, India, and South Africa even though the people were not armed. Violent revolutions very often lead to autocratic, militaristic rule (the U.S. is almost an exception). Non-violent revolutions, if possible, have better outcomes.

and brainwashed into blindly accepting all that is told them by said (tool of the elites) government. :_(
