The surest way to destroy a society is to be a full-time individual
A many named Danny put it to me this way. In his words, "I don't care what the government does. I'm just doing my own thing."
When an individual live alone on an island, the doing one's own thing mostly works.
In a society, especially of many people, we must work together to control the governments we create to help us protect our rights.
Oh, and for Danny? He really does "care" what the government does. He "cares" when it offers free housing, free food, free.... Free.... FREE!!!! stuff.
The quietest way a government enslaves the people is through all the freebies they stole from others to give to those who do not have -- but only after having taken a hefty chunk off the top as the middle-man.
If we want honest government, our society must wean ourselves off the public-purse; and learn how to recognize corrupted politicians before they get elected and sworn into office.
