Angel and the badmen

Liberty (08941408);Jun2009, Vol. 23 Issue 5, p7
The author gives his views about angels and men in government. He declares that no government would be necessary if men were angels. He adds that if angels were to govern men, no external or internal controls on government would similarly be necessary. He concludes that the greatest difficulty lies in enabling government to control the governed and thereafter obliging it to control itself. He believes that the belief in the angelic nature of U.S. President Barack Obama by his supporters has been reinforced with his removal of the CEO of General Motors.
