PGP for India: The Relationship Between the Individual and the Government

Continuing with the Pretty Good Principles (PGP) idea for India:

The Relationship Between the Individual and the Government

  • Liberal society with the individual as the principal and the government as the agent.
  • Economic assistance based on the merits of individual needs, not group based economic assistance.
  • Government should provide a level playing field for all people and institutions to be free to do whatever they wish to do and make sure that no person or institution encroaches on the rights of individuals.
  • People must be treated equally and without reference to any groups that they belong to.
