    If humankind lived by their conscience, through awareness and learning, then humankind would have no need to be restricted or controlled in any manner.

    But, since it is easier to be dishonest than it is to be honest, then the oldest preconceived notion that humankind must be forced(made) to answer to a higher authority(god or government) will remain in place. wink

    The answer is: it depends.

    As a general rule, a society that is primitive, backward, ignorant and underdeveloped needs a greater amount of oversight and management than a society that is well-developed, enlightened and rational.

    This is why a society like Afghanistan is not ready for democracy (at least many parts of it are not), and why it is foolish to try to transplant first-world, democratic, rational-bureaucratic institutions onto Afghanistan. These institutions took centuries to develop in the western world. Centuries of internal debate, squabbling and trial and error.

    Yet American policy makers seem to think that they can simply transplant institutions that are suited to a 21st century post-industrial secular society onto a 15th century pre-industrial fundamentalist one.

    Man must be controlled in certain circumstances. And we should be honest about that. The key is understand that the situation is fluid. There is no one single thing called "human nature" that is unchanging forever and ever. As man becomes more rational, more competent and more enlightened, he requires more freedom and less control (from government, from religion, from tradition, and from a variety of controlling influences) to realize his full potential.

    The Chinese population, in the aggregate, is rapidly reaching a stage of not needing such control and management. Many parts of China have already surpassed that stage. That is why freedom in China will become increasingly urgent in this century.

    Theoretically, Afghan society will some day be ready for democracy and freedom as well, perhaps in 100 years.

    Wise and accurate post Cagsil; but will the circle be unbroken or will humankind follow it's true destiny to the stars.
