Are people guilty until proven innocent, or is it the other way around? Does absolute power reside with the chief executive or should the three branches of government balance and check one another? Do words have objective meaning or are they flexible according to one’s purpose? Are the Ten Commandments significant?

The answers to these questions, whether they come from those in positions of power or the average citizen, determine the quality of a country and the quality of life for everyone in that country.
