The instrument of government is the prime political problem confronting human communities. Even conflict within the family is often the result of the failure to resolve this problem of authority.

Communities are exposed to the risks of uncertainty, and suffer the grave consequences of wrong answers. Yet none has succeeded in answering it conclusively and democratically. The Green Book presents the ultimate solution to the problem of the proper instrument of government. All political systems in the world today are a product of the struggle for power between alternative instruments of government.
