Question and answer
"Most bad government has grown out of too much government."—Thomas Jefferson In at least two paragraphs, discuss the meaning of this quote in relation to one of the following principles:
limited government, natural rights, separation of powers, or checks and balances. (10 points)
It's a call to classical 19th Century Liberalism, the Liberalism of Mill's Harm Principle. In essence it is an expression of the idea that Government should do what is necessary to prevent harm to people from others but no more. [ It may not under this doctrine, for example, be allowed to prevent people harming themselves. It may criminalise murder but it may not criminalise suicide. It may
criminalise rape but it may not criminalise any consensual sex. It was a fairly popular idea at the time especially among the new Republics like the USA and France. Natural law or the law of nature is a theory that posits the existence of a law whose content is set by nature and that therefore has validity everywhere. Civil law is a legal system inspired by Roman law, [ [ the primary feature of which is that laws are written into a collection, codified, and not (as in common law) determined by judges ] ] ]

Imagine a natural disaster strikes your area and power will be out for weeks. Describe two limitations to individual rights that you would support in this situation and why. Include an explanation of how the limits relate to at least one amendment in the Bill of Rights.
Weegy: Where will you or your family be when an emergency or disaster strikes? Emergencies and disasters strike quickly and without warning and can force you to evacuate your neighborhood or confine you to your home. [ [ What would you do if basic services — water, gas, electricity or telephones — were cut off? Local officials and relief workers will be on the scene after a disaster, but they cannot reach everyone right away. If disaster strikes, you need to know how to take care of yourself and your family. People can cope with disaster by preparing in advance and with families working together as a team. Preparing for a disaster or emergency is a responsibility that begins with each individual. We can't control all the emergencies that will occur in our lives, but we can be ready to face them by knowing what to do and taking action to prepare. ] ] (More)
