Some good intentions aren’t virtuous

Democracy works only when people act with virtue.

The check on lapses of virtue
Is the diversity of the Republic:

The Republic: A collection of mostly autonomous states
Any bad decisions that may arise
Can stay within the particular state.

The alternative is allowing bad decisions to concentrate at high levels,
where they cascade down from a national government
Through standardized programs
A one-size-fits-all ideology.

Because leaders with great power
Naturally want to help everyone they can.
