Excellent advice regarding the words that are used in "Codes", etc. that are "words of art". Here is where "make no assumptions about anything" can be a tremendous payoff! Although it may sound like conventional English, the truth is - Government agents are speaking a different language. Americans of every stripe and color need to know and understand that language! Our freedom literally depends on it!
Re: "a wholesale reevaluation of who and what 'government' really is" will make for an excellent class if you are up to teaching that! It will be the new "Civics 101". What is government? I think what Teddy Roosevelt has said about "government" could be included in your class:
I'm personally all for the self-government kind of government and intend to keep it that way. What a blessing it is to have and exercise a reliable inner authority to the extent that it leaves no room for an outer authority to trespass!
