Our Conscience Is Our "Governor"

There are some engines designed to run at a certain speed in order to reach maximum power output. In order to maintain a constant rate of speed, a mechanical device called a “governor” is used. When properly installed and adjusted, the governor will prevent the engine from running away, and it will speed up the engine if it slows down.

If the governor is improperly set, it will cause the machine to run incorrectly and eventually ruin it. The governor is not the standard of right and wrong — it is similar to a police force that acts according to predetermined rules.
