The Purpose of Government

Dr. Ron Paul beautifully stated what is true for any government:

“Personal liberty is the purpose of government, to protect liberty – not to run your personal life, not to run the economy, and not to pretend that we can tell the world how they ought to live.”

Following his train of thought I’d like to add as a corollary: Whatever group we may be part of, be it philosophically, religiously or otherwise oriented  – we may emulate their teachings and practices for our own benefit and advance, but let not have our personal lives run by its leaders, let them not run our finances, and let them not pretend that they possess the wisdom and knowledge to tell us how we ought to live!

This I find especially applicable for any religious group and in particular for the  the Church of Scientology.
