Do all governments use fear and hatred to push their own agendas?


Is there such thing as a wholly non-corrupt government, or do they all manipulate people with propaganda? Do you think it would be possible to truly have a government "of and for the people" - or is corruption completely unavoidable? (no debates or hate please) Philosophically speaking - can we make a government that is non-corrupt, can it exist? and if so, how? or is it truly not possible?

    Very true, like two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for lunch. I think we are actually on the last step - and it’s good because it means we are at the turning point. This time there are far more people aware, so we don’t have to go down as far.

    true, but if people believe the propaganda - how do they deserve it? What can they do to stop it if anything? I agree that there doesn't seem to be a wholly non-corrupt govt. Some are def. worse than others!

    Yes, completely agree. Human factor and greed.

    Even communism is harmful cos there is same govt for long which is prone to corruption.

    Iceland did it & after only 5 years later their country is doing better than ever, with no sign so far of tyranny or destruction or genocide..All governments are corrupt, & they all want control of their population, or rather their slaves.
