[rwewgwkn] Failure of strong and weak governments

If government is too weak, organized crime takes over.  If government is too strong -- fascist -- it itself, or its agents, fearing no repercussion,  become the perpetrator of crimes.

Worse still, in between them is an unstable equilibrium: organized crime will leverage its organization to weaken government further, while a fascist government will leverage its power to snuff out opposition and maintain power.

How can these bad outcomes be avoided?
