As societies become saddled with more government, their subjects become depressed, fearful, anxious and pessimistic about their lives.
Every government that ever existed sought the same powers: total control over all human affairs, the total elimination of privacy (except for the masters in government), all money, property and wealth, and to kill all who resist.
A recent poll shows that two-thirds of Americans now believe that America is now at its lowest point in history. See here.
Government is like a poison masquerading as a medicine. The federal government is now seven (7) times larger (in real terms, thus adjusted for inflation) than it was at the beginning of FDR’s presidency in 1933. Government regulates and controls almost every profession and industry, toilet use, every manner of transportation, births and deaths.
