Yes, You Have Something to Fear, Even if You’re a Law-Abiding Person - Daniel J. Mitchell - Townhall Finance Conservative Columnists and Financial Commentary - Page 1

....we’re often told that “if you’re a law-abiding person, you have nothing to fear.”

But that assumes government is both competent and trustworthy.
The problem is that it is no longer trustworthy and in the best of times, government has been barely competent in the things that it actually can do whereas now, government does much more than it is it capable of.

Most political communist nations, economics are the reason for being but cannot exist without a boot on the neck of the people, rule by law. As compared to the modern Western concept of 'rule of law.' The leviathan however, cannot exist or tolerate a people that cannot be coaxed or coerced into servitude without the ability to rule by law.
