John Stuart Mill defined the role of an ideal government as the follows in the book:

“Their part is to indicate wants, to be an organ for popular demands, and a place of adverse discussion for all opinions relating to public matters, both great and small; and, along with this, to check by criticism, and eventually by withdrawing their support, those high public officers who really conduct the public business, or who appoint those by whom it is conducted.”

John Mill argued that the representative bodies of a government such as parliaments and senates is to be places of public debate on the various opinions held by the population and to act as watchdogs of the professionals who create and administer laws and policy.
