Government Paranoia

In his brilliant and well-circulated essay, Common Sense, Revolutionary Founding Father Thomas Paine wrote, “government at its best (i.e. when it is doing everything right and nothing wrong), is a necessary evil.”

In other words if like me, you view government from the Thomas Paine school of thought, then governments - all governments - are inherently evil.  This means that government is never your friend and only your ally when its own evil objectives benefit from the alliance.

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!

I frequently find myself thinking about the type of person who is willing to prioritize his (or her) values to place principles before money and possessions. This is the kind of person who fights for freedom and opposes tyranny, stands for truth and exposes lies, lives and dies so that others may benefit from his struggles. This is the kind of person I am, and I often wonder what it would take to raise up more people of this character.

Nevertheless, man’s ability to choose how to react to these natural elements makes him different than all other animals.
