Morality In Government

What moral system should government follow?  The same one individuals follow.  Do not steal. Do not murder. Do not bear false witness. Do not covet. Do not foster vice.  If governments would merely follow the moral law that all religions recognize, we would live in a world of peace, prosperity, and freedom.  The system is called classical liberalism.  Liberty is not complicated.
