The Decalogue

[QUOTE=Chaz;462371]Obviously everyone here has there own ideas on thing's wrong with the current government(s) and ideas on ways things could be better so why not share them? So tell me, how would you imagine the ideal government? Lets start with a general sketch and work our way into minor details later, what KIND of government would it be (Doesn't even need to fall into a certain category, if need be make up your own or mix ideas of multiple governments) ? What ideas/guidelines would it be based upon? Who is in charge? How much power does that person have and what kind of limits (if any) are imposed on them? What rights do the people have?[/QUOTE]

Differences of opinion via things people love or hate in violent ignorances.

Theocracy verses democracy is what we can thank and praise the GOD for.
Plato the father of democracy claimed it was rule by the class of criminals.
Rule by the people the rabble the crowd of uneducated ignorant illiterate.
The ignorant as viewed from the point of view of an elitist representative.

As the heavens are higher than the earth so are THE GOD's ways above MAN'S.
IF common laws based on constitutional law then statute law refines by jail.

[QUOTE= VVIKI | Krzysztof Kieślowski]

Kieślowski said the following in an interview:

“ It comes from a deep-rooted conviction that if there is anything worthwhile doing for the sake of culture, then it is touching on subject matters and situations which link people, and not those that divide people. There are too many things in the world which divide people, such as religion, politics, history, and nationalism. If culture is capable of anything, then it is finding that which unites us all. And there are so many things which unite people. It doesn't matter who you are or who I am, if your tooth aches or mine, it's still the same pain. Feelings are what link people together, because the word 'love' has the same meaning for everybody. Or 'fear', or 'suffering'. We all fear the same way and the same things. And we all love in the same way. That's why I tell about these things, because in all other things I immediately find division.[4] ”

Stanley Kubrick wrote the foreword to Kieślowski & Piesiewicz, Decalogue: The Ten Commandments, London: Faber & Faber, 1991:

“ I am always reluctant to single out some particular feature of the work of a major filmmaker because it tends inevitably to simplify and reduce the work. But in this book of screenplays by Krzysztof Kieślowski and his co-author, Krzysztof Piesiewicz, it should not be out of place to observe that they have the very rare ability to dramatize their ideas rather than just talking about them. By making their points through the dramatic action of the story they gain the added power of allowing the audience to discover what's really going on rather than being told. They do this with such dazzling skill, you never see the ideas coming and don't realize until much later how profoundly they have reached your heart.
Stanley Kubrick January 1991 [1][/QUOTE]

The shame is that as soon as I mention the The Decalogue, Kieslowski and Art House Foreign Film or Not Made in America no one wants to watch it. Ergo then no body to discuss the contents with, nor the form of this masterpiece in its construction with. How to talk about such a subject, and not be judgmental is to say the least difficult. To illustrate the ten words in ten episodes where each character remains ignorant to the consequence of his actions in relation to the will appears to of been the objective. I am wading through each one slowly and so far have not seen them all so I reserve my opinion to the previous sentences account. If only American Soap Operas could plumb the depths of conscientiousness as Keislowski does then perhaps overnight the proud, the arrogant, the apostates would repent, for the words preceded all, law preceded the breaking of it, so now we know what sin is.
