The Torah discusses kingship and G-d, blessed be He, and the problems that it could lead to. There is of course the infamous kritarchy (rule by Judges) and the results it produced. However, I've seen someone claim that the Torah promotes an obscure system used in some place a long time ago, but I can't remember what its called. So I'd like to get an interpretation from the Jewish sources (in order to avoid this being an opinion piece): how should a government be conducted by humans according to the word of G-d, blessed be He.

  • @shmosel Not only did this answer absolutely nothing, but it in some sense might be counterproductive and the article not true in some aspects. Left-Right is not a useful distinction here also, but whatever. Perhaps my takeaway from the article is that I guess there is no universal perfect system for human governance, because whatever system we construct or try to derive, the sinful nature of man can sabotage it eventually over long periods of time and lead to chaos. Therefore, whatever is most suited to the local populace and will help them further follow the Torah is to be preferred.
