    Thank you so much.
    Would you please help me?


    However, would you possibly explain the following in more details? or paraphrase it in some way, so that I can find each part of the sentence?

    For instance, I really can not understand what the followings mean?

    0. Public needs VS. Common needs

    1. Once

    2.General society

    3. once united by their common needs in a general society


    Would you please help me with society terms?

    They appear to be the same. "Public needs" are things the public needs common needs are still things that the public needs.

    Although splitting hairs would maybe tell you that a road is "public need" while having a car or some other form of transportation is a "common need."

    1. We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, [meaning common needs that do not conflict with the development of the work ethic and personal self-reliance]

    In this instance "common" defense means defense of the country and everyone in it and their way of life. Meaning it defends everybody's way of life no matter how different each other's goals are.

    In this instance "Common" needs means the overall basic things that everyone needs, again no matter how different our goals are, we all need pretty much the same things... "Opportunity" specifically comes to mind. a "general" society means the country over all and is not targeted specifically to one social circle but all of us, rich, poor, middle, northern southern, eastern, western the entire society not just specific sub groups of society.
