We have staked the whole of all our political institutions
upon the capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control
ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.' - James
So give your servant a discerning heart to govern
your people and to distinguish between right and wrong. For who is able to govern this great people of yours?
— I Kings 3:9
