[mylfjyle] Avoiding government by the low self-qi

Design a government robust to some of its members having low self-qi.  Dictatorship is of course terrible for this: a dictator having a bad day will cause a lot of harm.  Even if the method by which government members are selected -- the way people acquire power -- tends to filter out those with low self-qi, people will occasionally have bad days.

In parallel, design an environment around those with power that maintains a high level of self-qi for them, so they don't commit harm with their power.  Such social environmental engineering is applicable beyond just government, anywhere where power of exercised.

We can also look at this descriptively: successful governments are those which have found a way to accomplish the above tasks.
