Real bonafide religion should be the guiding light of all policy makers (but it isn,t)
Every King had his advisors, who where wise and knowledgable but they didnt always take that advice, because they usually pampered to the public opinion for acceptance.
The governments of the world are weak, and cater to the whims of their people to make sure their in the running for election, and as a result we see gambling, crime, crooked business,enviromental problems, hunger, poverty, drugs etc out of control.
Spiritual advisors should be joined at the hip with the politicians to guide them in the right direction in shaping their policies, for the welfare of the people, but the people themselves dont know whats good for them. (big problem)
