How to reform government

"If we would have the government reformed, we must reform ourselves. The more virtue there is among private persons, the more there will be among rulers, and the more easy it will be for government to carry into execution laws for the suppression of vice and the encouragement of virtue." - Joseph Lathrop, 1786 (As found in American Political Writing during the Founding Era, Vol I. pg 672)
