This is a discussion platform arguing that government size and power should be small and limited to only a few important functions, to enforcing the rule of law. Like protecting the citizens’ three important freedom: freedom to live peacefully (against aggression), freedom to private property ownership (against thieves and destroyers of property), and freedom of expression with responsibility (against dictatorship and censorship). Thus, taxes to sustain government should be low and few.
Rule of law is not about "good and big" welfarist governance. Rule of law means the law applies equally to unequal people, no one is exempted and no one can grant an exemption to the restrictions and penalties set by the law. This implies that the number of laws, local and national, should be few. Where the number of laws and restrictions expand, the size and power of government, the taxes to sustain government, also expand indefinitely.
