Explores the concept of good government--effective management at all
levels--and bad government--a distant authority imposing its will through

such areas as agriculture, transportation, energy, and education.
Political Science ...
"The study of political science/law is basically the path of least resistance for me. It is a subject that has always interested me, and one that I have proved to be naturally insightful in. Studying political science isn’t just the study of how governments function or how it is composed, but the study of why it exists and to what ends. In short, it is the study of what makes everything else possible."
