terminology

I’ve been giving some thought to the term “Public Servant”

I think if you are making decisions that apply to the country and affect the face shown to the outside world, you are governing.

I think if you are making decisions that apply to the people and piss them off make them do things “for their own good” you are ruling.

I think if you are serving the public you volunteer in a soup kitchen.

  2. If you treat your customers like customers, you’re a good businessman. I think public servant is a higher calling.
