1745. State as a business?

Trump, with full naivete, will run the government, it appears, as though it is a busness.  Good for america, make america great again. I think he sees business success as the highpoint of human initiative.

Anothe view is that the purpose of government is to moderate the actions of citizens so that the whole society, not jut one of its leading edges, benefitss, or is not hurt too much. The measure of good govenrment is balance not the bid deal.

Trump seems to not be aware of this dimension. We have lived in a culture so pro bsiness for such a long time that perhaps any sense that we are really in anohter game entirely eludes most of us.
