When the people fear their government there is tyranny; when the government fears the people there is liberty.
It is apparent that the government is unafraid of a passive and/or deluded electorate. As living proof I offer the Internet. Listen to, read, or watch the mainstream media and you will hear glowing reports of an improving economy, lower unemployment rates, a benevolent force of immigrating Muslims and a plan for Peace In Our Time. If you swallow that propaganda you are wasting your time reading this. Go elsewhere, find a hole in the sand and plant your head, well away from the light of day, the truth, and free men. If you seek the truth, you will find it on the Internet in one of those enclaves where conservatives gather to discuss the latest atrocity that our leaders are forcing upon us. You will also find something else there: Fear.
