The Failing Government System
What causes the government system to become flawed and fail? With Today’s world being different, there is no longer a concern about surviving against a bear in the forest but rather where the next energy supply will come from. There are no longer small, independent villages or city-states spread out in one corner of the world, now there are massive government systems everywhere that control the world population.

There is no protection of the people because people only look out for themselves instead of looking out for the group which make the system flawed. It is survival of fittest, and with everyone thinking this way it is impossible to believe that a system could actually succeed, it is a lie that we have been feeding to ourselves since we could speak lies.
