When We The People engage in legislation decision of governance, don't We always do so in order to make Our Lives and Nation Better? This should be the why of it.
Whether its solving problems, correcting "mistakes" or trying to develop new ways to enhance More of Our Lives, We always have Better in Our Minds.
To some "Better" means to recapture that that has become lost. It would be "Better" to get certain lost things back. Usually because these things felt good, or We come to realize that they were more important to Us, than We thought. This might be called "Reaching Back For Better".
To others "Better" might mean being kinder, or gentler to Ourselves. Or tasting new pleasures. "Reaching Forward for Better".
Some of Us might be focused on removing certain laws that are unfair to some, while these give advantages to others. We seem to sense an unbalance in this phenomena"and that it would be Good to change it, to bring Better Balance into it.
The Wisest of Us see all of these social governance needs and are dedicated to bringing their fulfillment into Our Culture. In the "Spirit of Betterness", to make Our Sovereign Nation Better.
But, in Our quest for all of this improvement for Better, We must remember that even "Betterness" can go too far, too fast"and become a worse thing. "Betterness", to be the real deal, has to be well considered and deliberated upon. Steps are usually more serviceable than leaps.
