Maybe, the term “government” refers to a myriad of processes that our various government agencies might, or might not, routinely do every day.
Maybe, politics is subjective.
Maybe, government is objective.
Maybe, government is only a tool.
Maybe, politics is merely an argument on how that tool is used.
Maybe, politics has its place.
Maybe, government is measurable.
Maybe, we could set goals and benchmark the data to make projections and learn from the results.
Maybe, our ancestors routinely went to the moon decades ago and we wanted to devolve.
Maybe, we too collectively yearn for the potential to do whatever we want to do.
Maybe, government is the tool we use to achieve that goal.
Maybe, politics is the reason we don't use government to achieve goals.
Maybe, government can and should be measured and tweaked to drive innovation and pinpoint efficiencies for the betterment of all humanity.
Maybe, we could work on defining objectives and reach “for the stars” again.
Maybe, the objective should be to think objectively.
Maybe, the Objective Party?
