Public service transcends all branches and agencies of all governments - government, is service to the people. Public service is more than a job or a career - it is the responsibility and a life-long commitment to serve the necessities of all the people of the Republic.
Therefore, whether or not service to the people requires an oath to assume office, service to the people fundamentally demands that politicians and staff from the executive branch to the legislative branch and beyond, make the required adaptations from being self-centered to become other-centered in order to facilitate the non-bias functions of effective governance.
However, when politicians and other servants of civility fail to make the needed changes required in order to sustain tranquility within the Republic, elements of dissent and anarchy become fueled.
Hence, threats and vindictive actions against citizens who object to any policies of a particular governing administration, must never be allowed or encouraged. All attempts to stifle dissent within a Republic amount to the weakening of the State.
Public service comes with the responsibility to protect and to safeguard all citizens within the Republic so as to assure the continuity of justice, liberty and tranquility. Public service must never treat any particular class or any sect with privilege over any other. The beacon of hope to prosperity can only be kept lit by responsible public service. Here's to good public service.
