They say that politics is the art of the possible. That is because politics involves power relationships, and power is the ability to get something accomplished. We are all born into a society and grow up to discover what those power relationships are in our governments and other social institutions. Political structures are not created from scratch like a building but are traditions that are passed on and altered by each generation, occasionally in revolutionary ways. Whereas we can establish new schools, businesses, art, and religion, to make innovations in government and laws we must pragmatically deal with the current institutions that are exercising dominion and sovereignty. In discussing the educational principles of government and law I will analyze and criticize broadly our current range of institutions, formulate theories of good government, and then show how we can learn to act in ways that will most successfully bring about those reforms.
