  •  Fantasy of Government Tyranny? (5+ / 0-)
    "tyranny" implies lawless and/or unaccountable rule
    Lawless and or unaccountable rule . .  like say torture of detainees in violation of Title 18 US Code without prosecution?  Or perhaps warrantless wiretapping of American citizens in violation of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 without prosecution?  Or assassination of American citizens without due process of law?  Or over 2,000,000 persons in prison?

    The idea that government tyranny is a fantasy is itself a fantasy.

    I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever. ~Thomas Jefferson
