The 12 Governmental Mechanism
In the seven Noahide laws, Governments– representatives of the citizens- are obligated to create a justice system.
Let’s use a real life example
8:00 a.m. on October 7, 1969, the Montreal police went on strike
Steven Pinker, the psychologist who was born and grew up in Montreal recalled how the wildcat police strike and the lawlessness that followed changed his views:
“As a young teenager in proudly peaceable Canada during the romantic 1960s, I was a true believer in Bakunin’s anarchism. I laughed off my parents’ argument that if the government ever laid down its arms all hell would break loose. Our competing predictions were put to the test at 8:00 a.m. on October 7, 1969, when the Montreal police went on strike. By 11:20 am, the first bank was robbed. By noon, most of the downtown stores were closed because of looting. Within a few more hours, taxi drivers burned down the garage of a limousine service that competed with them for airport customers, a rooftop sniper killed a provincial police officer, rioters broke into several hotels and restaurants, and a doctor slew a burglar in his suburban home. By the end of the day, six banks had been robbed, a hundred shops had been looted, twelve fires had been set, forty carloads of storefront glass had been broken, and three million dollars in property damage had been inflicted, before city authorities had to call in the army and, of course, the Mounties to restore order. This decisive empirical test left my politics in tatters (and offered a foretaste of life as a scientist).” Pinker 2003, p. 331
The Montreal Gazette reported on 8 October 1969:
“Fires, explosions, assaults and a full-pitched gun-battle kept Montrealers huddled indoors as the reign of terror brought the city to the edge of chaos and resulted in the call for the Army help… Hundreds of looters swept through downtown Montreal last night as the city suffered one of the worst outbreaks of lawlessness in its history. Hotels, banks, stores and restaurants around the Ste-Catherine-Peel Street axis had their windows smashed by rock-tossing youths. Thousands of spectators looked on as looters casually picked goods out of store-front windows.”
The Rabbis of yore perhaps saying it harrowingly best “without law and order people would eat other literally alive.”
Within all people are competing tendencies as Freud called it the life and death instinct.
There is a part of us that loves (and would even give our life for those we love) and there is a part of us (usually buried in deep layers of subconscious denial) that hates (and is happy, as we see with Muslim terrorists, as we saw with nazis, and many other cultures, even ready to give their life just to murder.)
When anger (the cause of hate, the cause of maliciousness/evil) come to a person (“that’s not fair!”) there is no telling what another will do.
It goes without saying that those that stand to “gain” the most from lawlessness such as black (or any color) gangs, are those protesting law and order the most.
Many people have resentment – this may have been (say in the case of President Obama who wrote a book “Dreams of My Father”) from fatherhood childhood abandonment (this in fact can create anxiety disorders which themselves cause resentment – for “its not fair that you live a happy life (which is what everyone truly desires most) while I must suffer incessant anxiety..” – and the moment we feel something is unfair, we become angry.
Certainly if you stole my possession this would cause me anger – so having a legal system to a. protect people from those who have generalized hate (of course this is the motive behind serial killers, rapists etc.) and behind those who have a genuine grudge – say my business partner (or someone ) stole money… is societies first and foremost duty.
This cannot be overstated, the first and foremost role of any government is to have not only a legal system – In which the laws are equally applicable, but also the ability to enforce it – as the Islamic quote “better a hundred years of tyranny than one day of anarchy” – for in the former, the majority can sleep.
That being said our current system of incarceration is ridiculous – in America there are two million people in Jail, that’s almost 1 out of every 150 people – jail as studies show doesn’t work, (furthermore it brands the person and then they can’t get a job – so it’s not just a sentence say for a year, it’s a life of hell.)
Far better (at least for non violent crimes – though in Judaism this is even for violent crimes besides rape and murder, where capital punishment is applied – though to apply a captial punishment, one must be very very certain – beyond any shadow of doubt) so for example for theft, one pays back double – for harming someone one pays their medical expenses, the time of work, the value of the pain (how much would someone pay to not have this pain) the embarrassment (how much would some pay to not have that done to them.)
#2 International relations
Perhaps nothing has caused more useless meaningless, future death than war.

In total from the dawn of time of at least 300,000,000 million people have needlessly been murdered and if recent report about the Islamic incursions into India are correct Islam (guilty of a tremendous amount of violence) in those incursions, was the greatest cause of human misery murder and death (400,000,000) and if one thinks that “scientific enlightened man” is immune, the actual facts is that as hate is in the heart, therefore if the means to deliver a devastating blow are great, then ability to do so is likewise.
Now all wars obviously have three phases:
Phase number 1 hate (using Islamic terrorism as a good example, or nazi hate – this hate is irrational – “I desire to kill you”) number two, mechanism (whether it is building an army or in the case of Iran a nuclear bomb) number 3, execution (again remembering that all it takes to use biochemical or nuclear weapons is the push of a single button we have a to paraphrase Aristotle who wrote “big problems come from small/// Catastrophes, come from huge problems.”)
So what’s the solution?
In the end of the day all wars can be avoided
The legal system around the world – as we know, as Paul Johnson the noted historian wrote that the entire notion of law (and order) comes from the Bible and in the Bible it states (to jurists) “Justice Justice, shall you pursue” – why the double wording? – because the first is for compromise / mediation – and around the world; just first and foremost seek for parties to mediate (mediation which I have a degree in, is a mechanism which parties (as opposed to the law which imposes a winner / loser) are helped to compromise voluntarily.
In other words we both encourage all parties (they could be incentivize if they achieve positive consensus) as well as allow all parties, to have with us a voluntary mediation (this means that no one is obligated, however the mechanism whereby a conversation in which a mediator attempts to create compromise ensues – to make the system work each country should choose a mediator and the two should choose a third (this process should not take more than a week) then the two parties with the three mediators meet and they should try within a week (as deadlines create compromise) this can be extended week to week try to compromise.
Any country that starts this process by simply saying this is how we will end our conflicts, is going to be the role model – and make history – as history is made by the first adopter.
Imagine a world with peaceful resolutions – its up to you!
# 3 it goes without saying – particularly in democracies where governments must please their electorate – that helping those who are in need is correct (with a majority of Amricans support this, for the U.S. Government,) however there has come a dangerous trend in left wing radical thinking in which “rich people are bad” (this may be due to former communists disinformation campaigns that have lingered.)
Without a. security. b. laws c. incentive, people will not create businesses, which means a. the country will have very few services and b. very little income, which means, its ability to do good, is hampered exponentially.
This message – to counter the illusion that money is evil – must be taught in every country.
#4 Having grown up in America – as polls show, most Americans don’t recognize their country – the #1 concern they have (at least when this poll was conducted by Gallup) is the divisiveness– to understand a problem one must look at its root – and the root of this divineness (which as a Jew I can see how it infiltrated into Israel, so these are two countries in which the common-identity was very strong…) is through left wing radical politicians – radicals like Hitler have but one agenda – it’s not the poor they seek to uplift from compassion, rather they hate hate – now Reb Menachem Mende of Kotzk (one of the wisest Rabbis ever said – what is the difference between a lover of truth or a hater of falsehood – the former will find truth and the latter falsehood (the same applies to the difference between a lover of love or a hater of hate, while the former is seeking hence will find love the latter has been (at best) traumatized by hate and therefore their brain is focused on eliminating hate – the problem of course being, is they use the very same tools they seek to destroy ; ( its like fighting fire with fire, you only cause a much much bigger one.)
Countries must do all in their power to encourage unity
Most of the world desire Democracy Based On Majority Consensus (pew 66%)
Here is how to practically implement it – for there is also the tyranny of the majority so it must be carefully balanced (for example Switzerland uses this system but by allowing any citizen with five or fifty thousand signatures to put something to the public ballot they have for example managed to ban air conditioning
So the normal healthy balanced and positive way to have Direct Democracy:
A. First determine what are your countries top ten concerns;
B. In countries that must have solutions passed in multiple houses, such as in America, the Congress, Senate and Supreme Court create (ideally Inter-House, as well as Supreme Court vetted) joint proposed solutions;
C. Then the Administration will present a (final) complete Solution to the people – this should be done by a verifiable authentic poll – and if there is 51% agreement introduce legislation.
In other words, instead of war, bickering, bottleneck, we will have peace, functionality and solutions, to our countries most serious issues!
Obviously this process can be repeated indefinitely.
65% of Americans Agree, once the Government comes up with a solution, it should further poll for majority consensus. (Gravis Marketing)
#5 The most important war of-course is the war of life vs holocaust – currently the entire world is under threat from the radical Islamic Jihad which is quite simply to murder everyone. (Though terrorism has somewhat subsided – as President Trump is scary enough to some of the less aggressive players to temporarily be subdued – but many don’t realize the current trend in Islam (of course Islam has mainly three groups: the Sunnis 1.2 billion, the Shiites 200,000,000 (mainly Iran, Iraq, and Syria) and Wahhabism (the version of Islam which founded Saudi Arabia – Wahhabism is a literal interpretation of the Koran (a book which calls directly for the murder of Jews and Christian, over thirty times.) Considering that Wahhabism was aligned to Sunni, hence Wahhabism through Saudi Arabian oil (for example in Pakistan where their madrasas, school of learning, educate 1 million + annually – where the sole study is memorization of the koran and practices of Islam, – so the literal interpretation of Saudi Arabia’s version of Islam, “kill, kill and kill some more…” results in a million graduates, annually, of you guessed it – “wannabe suicide bombers.”)
When we consider five facts we’ll understand this poses an existential threat:
#1 Pakistan as we speak has 120 Nuclear bombs (and if you are aware of the EMP – electromagnetic pulse – it takes but one (detonated 20 miles above the ground, in the center of a country (God-forbid) to fry the entire electrical grid, resulting in Govt. estimate of 80% of U.S. Citizen dead in a year (that’s a conservative estimate.) Now how many radicals does it take to push a button….
#2 The source of this doctrine, Saudi Arabia, is thanks to Obama, continued with Trump, building 16 nuclear reactors!
#3 Iran is the other side of jihad (for they believe “when the world will be filled with blood up to a horse’s knee, the messiah will come”) they of-course are feverishly working their centrifuges.
#4 Once a person has been indoctrinated, not only can you not unconvinced them, they are ready to give their life to – and do convince more.
#5 Turkey, a Nato ally (if there ever was an irony : ) is working on Nukes, (consider the head of Turkey is part of the Muslim Brotherhood!, perhaps the largest Islamist terrorist organization, and over 50% of the party (Turkey’s Parliament) belong to Islamic radicalism….
Solution To Issue # 5.
- 78% of Americans agree, we should not give any Islamic country Nuclear Technology.
2. 64% of Americans agree we should sanction those who already have.
3. 71% Of Americans Agree, that we should ban Jihadist doctrine on the Internet.
(Remember this is how ISIS – who wantonly murdered, raped, beheaded) was formed.)
Gravis Marketing Poll
Intro: 80% of U.S. Mosques, to which millions of otherwise (potentially) peaceful Muslims go to, have been radicalized, as they are being sponsored and indoctrinated by Saudi Arabia Wahhabism.
5. 61% of Americans agree, we should stop foreign funding of local Mosques (as this invites radical doctrines.) Gravis Marketing Poll
6. 73% of Americans agree we should sanction Islamic countries that educate their children to murder. Gravis Marketing Poll
Of course this is based on the assumption that solution # 2 (voluntary mediation won’t work.)
In general it would be wise (though probably unfeasible (Einstein spent a lifetime trying something even less ambitious namely that countries with nuclear technology should limit its spread) that all countries give up all their nukes, as most Americans desire.
#6 Unity vs. Discord – on a familial level our divorce rates are through the roof, lack of marriage as well; (though most would like to…. This may shock you, based on the very good research of David Goldman, an economist whose column is read by intelligent agencies world wide (the book is called “How Civilizations Die (including Islam” – the following is from the books description)
WILL WE GO DOWN IN THE IMPLOSION?
Thanks to collapsing birthrates, much of Europe is on a path of willed self-extinction. The untold story is that birthrates in Muslim nations are declining faster than anywhere else—at a rate never before documented. Europe, even in its decline, may have the resources to support an aging population, if at a terrible economic and cultural cost. But in the impoverished Islamic world, an aging population means a civilization on the brink of total collapse— something Islamic terrorists know and fear.
Muslim decline poses new threats to America, challenges we cannot even understand, much less face effectively, without a wholly new kind of political analysis that explains how desperate peoples and nations behave.
In How Civilizations Die, David P. Goldman—author of the celebrated “Spengler” column read by intelligence organizations worldwide—reveals how, almost unnoticed, massive shifts in global power are remaking our future.
- How extinctions of peoples, cultures, and civilizations are not unthinkable—but certain
- How for the first time in world history, the birthrate in the West has fallen below replacement level
- Why birthrates in the Muslim world are falling even faster
- Why the “Arab Spring” is the precursor of much more violent change in the Islamic world
- Why looming demographic collapse may encourage Islamic terrorists to “go for broke”
- How the United States can survive the coming world turmoil
Solution to Issue #6
The only exception to the falling birth rates is Orthodox Jews and Evangelicals– and the reason for this (I believe) for though all other societies (including Islam) when they hit modernity they stop having children, it means that fundamentally speaking their must be something in both Orthodox Judaism as well as Evangelical Christians that encourage them to WILLINGLY have more children- and (I believe) there are three factors:
- Prosperity (generally both of these groups live in prosperous countries)
- Love – this cannot be overstated – people who are loved, love – again people who feel loved, they love, and therefore having a child is loving
- The Bible -having a value system which encourages marriage, fidelity and children.
As such the solution to this existential problem is through the above three factors.
So 1. Prosperity (which other solutions can create) is necessary
- Feeling loved – this should come from the President, Prime Minister, whoever – at every single speech (and ideally daily they should begin “Fellow Americans, I love you dearly”…) feeling loved is a perception (obviously it must be genuine to be believed.)
- Finally we must make a massive educational campaign which extols the virtues of marriage fidelity – people can be honored – as this will elevate the status.
Issue # 7. Prosperity vs. Poverty – of-course everyone has a right to basic living conditions – it was always tough, but with covd and with robots taking over 50% of manual labor by the year… – it’s no laughing matter
Solution for Issue #7 It goes without saying that the bedrock of economies is business and hence as mentioned in number 3 the encouragement of business is essential – this is primarily done (besides safety law and order) though lower taxes (again malicious diabolical radicals seek to raise the taxes, it is not the poor they care for (more taxes does not equal more but less money!) lowering taxes, incentives investing.)
The Laffer Curve notion, that reasonable tax rates and strong economic growth are the best way to generate monies for government.
The only way to balance the five factors 1. Technological progress (which in of itself is good) 2. Robots taking over most simple jobs 3. Meaning and sense of pride (which in men invariably comes from meaningful work – being able to provide 4. Governments feeding their population 5. Hence lack of civil unrest (someone may have a better idea, but this is mine, which most Americans (based on a Gravis Marketing poll) agree to)
We need to create villages – these villages, somewhat akin to the Israeli Kibbutz have three components – 1. A Spiritual meaning (“God’s Home” “Where Love is Life” – People are encouraged to help, give etc.) 2. To the extent possible “off grid” living, in other words planting, using solar etc. should be the focus c. Now we have a situation in which people both have meaningful employment as well as a meaningful life – so in summary Governments must invest.
#8 Health vs. Illness – thank God our knowledge of preventive care, mainly through good thinking, eating and exercise, is expanding.
We must make a massive educational campaign which extols the virtues of healthy thinking, self-discipline, love, as well as healthy eating and some exercise.
We must make a massive effort – especially to children to encourage healthy eating and practices.
#9 Dignity vs. Shame – thank G-d our recognition to not insult, on one hand is expanding, however simultaneously, politicians demonize, and induce great hate.
We must firstly be very careful to never insult and simultaneously have a massive educational campaign – “Would you like someone to insult you – how do you think whoever you insult feels?”
#10 Joy vs. Sadness or misery – this is of-course primarily based on a. feeling fortunate (which is primarily based on gratitude) b. this is also based on doing things of meaning (vs. meaningless.)
We need a massive educational campaign both to adults and children to a. thank G-d every morning (this gratitude, as studies show induces hope and happiness – and happy people are far nicer : ) and also encourage people to live – discover – a meaningful (the meaning of their ) life.
My Book Discover The Meaning Of Life which has a 5 step Process must be distributed.
#11 Moral (education) vs. immoral – perhaps the most important indicator of the future – for-example all civilizations (apart from Evangelical and Orthodox Jews, are destined, based on birth rates, to soon be extinct.)
1: The value of life – even of one’s own, must be educated.
Every child should be taught to value both their own life and others, for life is unconditionally valuable.
2: Introduce A Moment of Silence – Contemplating A Respect For A Higher Power
64% Of Americans’ Support implementing a moment of silence: which is, that in the beginning of the school day, students are given a moment in their own language and heart, to pray.
Gravis Marketing Poll
3: Implement a curriculum that offers emotional intelligence, for example, how to overcome anger, how to forgive, how to be kind etc.
79% of American’s believe we should implement a curriculum that offers emotional intelligence, for example, how to overcome anger, how to forgive, how to be kind etc. Gravis Marketing Poll
4: 87% of Americans’ Believe, that “Students would be better served if career training is part of the high school curriculum which they should complete by the time they finish high school.” Gravis Marketing Poll
5: 90% of Americans believe society would be better served, if we educate students what are the laws of the land as well as the consequences for transgressing. Gravis Marketing Poll
This Should be Mandated For All Schools (even Parochial.)
#12 Clean Energy
Whether one believes in climate change or the certain fact that clean air is healthier, 56% of Americans agree the government should create solar farms that will offer free energy nationally and internationally.
The only way we shall have world peace is by a. realizing that the only thing that is random is our own stupidity – every single created being is an epic – scientifically proven – miracle! as such there is a purpose to each – We each like a unique instrument in a grand symphony contribute (for when we understand this, instead of feeling jealous, we feel love, and when we feel love, we don’t feel hate – when we feel love, we wish, as the Hebrew word for love has in it “hav” to give – while the hebrew word for hate has in it an – to annihilate)
