Sadly, each hard and heavily placed stepping stone toward a progressive society includes an equally progressive tax on our individual labor.  And, your notions of fairness and utility of that tax, as well as mine, mean nothing to the collective.  Therefore, we are forced to trust our betters to make those decisions on our behalf.

Historically, contrary to their assurances, those betters tend to their interests rather to those of the citizens.  So, citizens eventually find themselves enjoying neither freedom or security, while clawing out a living on behalf of an unsustainable empire.

Eventually, revolution ensues over lack of bread, or gasoline, or cell coverage, or perhaps something we can’t yet imagine. Then government structures reform, new leaders come forward, and elites continue to buy and sell us all like so many sow-bellies.  Rinse and repeat.

Θεοῦ τῷ Θεῷ. ~ Matthew 22:21
