The story is old, but it goes on

In my mind, there is a perfect state where there’s no police brutality; taxes are low; marijuana is legal; nature and it’s beauty is protected; the government doesn’t shut down the economy due to fear, and people have the right to arm themselves as they please. Then, I see that the state ruined because the people request more security, and convince themselves that freedom is barbaric. So now, they live in fear as they ask for more protection. The people over time accept and agree with their oppressors. Society needs order, they say, and freedom will only lead to chaos. Years later, a movement for freedom begins, and the people take back the power and set themselves free once more. Only for their grandchildren to request the chains of tyranny again, and this goes on forever.
