Excerpts of guest blogs by George Staropoli on Ward Lucas’ blog, Neighbors at War!
For a society, a community, to function in an orderly manner there must be not only rules, but a firm belief in the need to enforce just and fair rules and laws. Political philosophy says that where laws are unjust and unfair, then the democratic government is not legitimate, cause the reason for forming a social contract and surrendering freedoms is just that.
Proposed HOA reforms must include necessary and sufficient detriments to put an end to HOA bullying and abuse. People do not become angels when they become a board member, like our astute, politically savvy legislatures would like you to believe.
If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. James Madison, The Federalist Papers, # 51.
