Jesus' entire teaching was "to gather Power, Presence, Peace, Action back unto yourselves," i.e., INDIVIDUAL SELF GOVERNMENT. He said "I would, but ye would not" as pertains to "I can free you from the heavy burdens of government, of freedom from the Sanhedrin, of heavy taxation, of slavery, but you would not."
Scripture further says, "I have placed my laws in your inward parts, in your minds and in your Hearts, and ye shall all know ME, from the greatest to the least." These "laws" are in every man, woman and child. They are the ones called "unalienable" by the US constitution and are a "restatement" or reaffirmation of scripture in that sense. The bell of Freedom lies in every man and sometimes seemingly deeply buried under the "getting," the victim sense, of looking to the government OUTSIDE while actually the government of every man in INSIDE.
Every Truth teaching worth looking into teaches this "inner Freedom" or Self Government. Uncovering the god-nature within naturally brings out that the "government is on god's shoulders." And no man would even entertain asking the government to forcibly steal (through laws) from another to give to him, nor would he entertain stealing from another. For he then KNOWS that to do so is stealing from himself -- just as unforced "giving" is giving to himself. Jesus' entire message was that "inner Freedom" manifests as "outer Freedom."
It is the WILL OF THE PEOPLE, individually, that always determines any oppressive LAWS to which they themselves are bound on the outer. As individuals HAVE these "inward laws" in their minds and in their hearts, the reflection of these "inward laws REALIZED" shows up as outer freedom. UNREALIZED, the inward laws remain dormant and show up as outer slavery.
When the government is on god's shoulders, it means INDIVIDUAL SELF GOVERNMENT, for again "I" have placed my laws in your inward parts, in your minds and in your hearts. And "ye shall all know Me from the greatest to the least," as no man lives that does not inherently have these laws and may awaken to them at any moment.
