I've come to realize that politics in general is inherently corrupt.
My thinking goes like this: both or all parties want some sort of external control, and for those that don't, they tend to advocate freedom to everything. While it's true that I may be free to do certain things, that doesn't mean I have an inherent natural right to do so. So government is always bound to fail because it either ignores natural law through its legal positivism, or it seeks to enforce natural law externally, which is self-contradictory. The only way for us to have a perfect society is for all to live, willingly, according to natural law.
Now, I don't think that can happen outside of the millenium, but I think individuals who strive so to live are in a far better position personally than others.
Just my thoughts. It may not make much sense, since this is almost 2 am.
