While on one of my weekly drives into town, I pass the Highway Patrol
Officer with his radar gun pointed at me.... I pull up to a traffic signal with
the colorful "PHOTO ENFORCED" signs and no less than 10 cameras and
flash bulbs aimed at me....I pass through CR scanners at a Border Patrol 85

Couple this characterization of government with the growing paranoia being displayed by numerous governments around the world, and what you get is a very chilling image of the future. I for one find it to be very frightening, indeed!

This is the kind of person I am, and I often wonder what it would take to raise up more people of this character.

Man is unique in the animal kingdom in that he has the ability to create, through choice, that which he experiences. However, regardless of man’s claims to advanced technologies, there are some natural elements over which he has no control. Nevertheless, man’s ability to choose how to react to these natural elements makes him different than all other animals.
