When the members of a society find themselves in a secure position, human nature will lead them to relax their vigilance and they eventually find themselves doing things they never would have imagined in their normal state.. As this can happen to anyone at any given time and lead to crime, governmental control of some kind is found necessary. However, when the same problem occurs within said government the members of such societies must rise up and create a new and better government to preserve their wellbeing. At the last however, when such failings occur to both at the same time by intent or accident the tyranny ensues.
As the people weaken their grasp in one part, the government in its natural thirst for more control reaches in and "fills" that need. As society accepts more and more government control in their lives, the fall increases its velocity. Each time a great movement in priorities takes place, a crack is found in the system which is then filled by the government until the citizens lose control entirely. At this point the government becomes a law unto itself. Now there is a state where each citizen is now the property of the state and no longer a person in and of themselves.
irritating knee injury + trapped mental energy = rambling.
I injured my right knee recently playing indoor soccer. It's just a surface wound (took a lot of skin off) but because its on my knee it can't form a proper scab. Every time I move my leg the scab cracks and more liquid seeps through to rebuild it. Trouble is, it overdoes the seeping part and leaves bumps on my knee that hang loosely when they crack. So I physically break off the excess to keep it under control. Interesting opening for parallel applications? You tell me.
