A professor should know these answers, or where they are to be found. Government functions in America should not depend on one ideology or another, they were written in to the founding docs.

"Is government necessary? If so, what functions should it perform?" These are questions that should not even need to be asked. If the Library wanted to provide answers to these question they should set up studies that provide the writings of the founders, from the Constitution to the Federalist and anti-federalist writings, to the all the organic or fundamental laws of America, the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777, the Northwest Ordinance of July 13, 1787, and the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776. Every question, every issue we face today can be answered just by these readings. Yes, to a point. When it becomes detrimental to freedom, liberty and prosperity, it is no longer a necessity, it is a hindrance. All answer to how government should perform can be answered from a cursory study of the above docs. Because we have forgotten and been betrayed by those who supposedly lead us that we no longer know the true functions of the American Republic.
