How Can You Have True Freedom if They Control Every Aspect of Your Life?
Freedom is in the eyes of the beholder. In Communist Countries the populations are told they have a good life and a great life's purpose, supporting the country and leadership with a much needed and important job. In Capitalistic countries in the current period we find most of the nation's inhabitants completely economically enslaved in debt.
How can one be free if every aspect of their life is controlled? The more humans you put into an ever-increasing density, the more rules you must make to keep control of the group. Then you have to watch for subgroups and trends or self forming human organizations challenging your authority and labeling the leadership or rule makers whether elected or not; "unfit to lead," this will lead to conflict. Such conflict leads to a further tightening and reduction of liberty or freedom. Yet if careful those in power are able to quickly remind the masses that such additional laws are in their best interest and to maintain safety and freedom. This works fine as long as there is "Buy In" from those being controlled. Often the gift of diplomacy, i.e. "The art of letting someone else get your way" then must come into play. In the "Prince" and as per Machiavellian theory it states that it is best to be "Loved and Respected" over "Feared and Respected" although either of those will allow you to stay in power.
Those who control the civilization desire to remain "Loved and Respected" as it makes leadership very easy and is safer for their longevity in a nation which is democratic by nature; i.e. leaders are voted into service and leadership capacity. Getting an entire population to go along with perceived freedom instead of actual freedom means one retains their "Loved and Respected" status and the civilization can move forward with the plans of those powers to be. When the masses become too restless, problems arise and embroiled societies rebel against the status quo for a perceived possible better future or utopia; in our present period such sound and fury which might cause such uprising is more often than not caused by mass media in sighted hysteria and a created reality that those who control such media wish to purport.
A free man in any nation should often ask himself; am I really free and from their can decide; "Where he wants to go today?" Think on this.

National Archives Needs to Embed RFID Tags in Ink
Perhaps we should have printers with ink which has metallic properties which would simulate RFID Tags in pages scattered throughout the reports and papers of secret documents, then if one decides to do something unethical to steal the paper work then the report itself will trigger an alarm, even if one puts it in their socks or underwear, under a hat. As one leaves the building through a detector like at the bookstores, gotcha!!These technologies are being developed now, so we may as well put them to good use.

An ROI on National Security
Do you find it interesting that people complain about the costs of Homeland Security in that they fail to understand the value of a "NO EVENTS" for instance? We have not had any big attacks, since 9-11 in the United States. There may have been an event or two we do not know about as citizens as the authorities are working on the cases and going after the bad guys?Since we have not had any big attacks one should be asking; Why? Probably because we are offensive over there and thus they cannot attack us here, very distracted.

The Worlds Eldest Democracy Was A Truly Romantic Affair
Visible remnants of the world's eldest democracy can be seen in a town in the Carantania region in what is now Austria, where during the early Middle Ages, the tribal society of a Slav people managed to live for over 100 years without being invaded and out of sheer happiness invented a democratic system. They did not call it a democracy but the word invented later was taken directly from their example.

How Futuristic Is Anarchy As A Way To Organize The State (II)
Any chances for a country to be ruled by alternative rule will always be zero because -as many economists, philosophers and scientists claim- the way the various parts reality consist of interrelate is dominated by forces we won't in a billion years have any chance of controling. An anarchist with aspirations to help build organizational structures not based on governing from above's best bet is to get a clear picture of those areas of science that are leading the way in terms of future progress.
The Absurdity of the Public School Monopoly
The notion that local governments should have almost total monopoly control over our children's education is not only unjust and tyrannical, it is also absurd. Children need education, to be sure, but they also need food, clothing, and shelter.

Intelligent Design - Why are the Intelligent So Afraid of It?
Why are intelligent people so afraid of the idea that the worlds may have been made by?intelligent design? Is it only a very un-intelligent fear that they may have been wrong? Is mighty science threatened? Or are they afraid that Science will be seen as the bully on the block who met up one night in a dark alley with a huge group of Bible thumping geeks.Perhaps evolutionists should accept a simple three point challenge to help identify their fears.
