So what a modern society aims to do is stem the tide, to lean against that natural flow, prop up as much rules/laws and bureaucracy as it can to fight the primitive desire to dominate through the strength of its own force. If those laws are bypassed then the flood banks break and we all drown.
so from that standpoint, there have been and currently are many thousands of good people who act as the people who enforce the good democratic law and continually re-enforce the flood banks when pieces get knocked aside. If we take the view that the current is stronger through technology and surveillance then we must assume that either the banks will break or that that unrelenting force will find another way at a weaker point unless more checks and balances are put in place.
No the weakness is in the heart of the individual who decides to call it a day and give in.
When I said good luck I meant it! I would rather have some of big brothers powers taken away, if you read all the posts on here you will see that i do not agree 100%
Voting, well that would be a start, once again it was an honest question and you answered it - thanks
