Sheep vs Pigs

I glanced at an internet forum this morning and I saw all sorts of horror about how the Chinese government crushed some protestor with a steamroller.


A particular comment caught my eye ... someone stated that the Chinese government views its citizens as disposable. I don't know this person, but I do believe they have touched on one of the most basic truths about all governments.


The American government views its citizens as sheep to be sheared, as often as possible. Occasionally they eat one or two in order to keep the others in line and complacent enough to be sheared. In many other places, tyrannical governments view their ctizens as pigs, to be raised as efficiently as possible and then devoured.


The sheep look on in horror at what is happening to the pigs without realizing that they're ultimately in the same boat. When the government no longer desires to shear us, they'll eat us the same as the pigs.


We were warned that this would happen when the government ceased to fear its citizens.

The millionn dollar question is how is the proper amount of fear re-established?
