The state will not be happy until you are subjugated. It's not in the state's interest.
And before you get all caught up in your visceral distaste for this one [okay; I'm projecting. But I suspect I'm right . . . ], just remember -- they're ALL going to take your freedom away from you. It's cleaner. Neater. Easier.
And since it augments their power, it shouldn't be a shock that they'd want it . . . easier.
The Bill of Rights hasn't done much to stop them when people willingly let them take freedom away.
