    Thought this was an interesting comment about the historical nature of the church in creating western society.

    People want to be rules by their own "kind" of people. The history of the US demonstrates that "taxation with representation" is pragmatically no different than "taxation without representation." The US only demonstrates that people are more content when they vote for their tax collector. The closest "kind" of people are those related by blood, then by marriage and etc.
