|One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche|

One day a well meaning bureaucratic official will unleash powerful technology to enforce laws. This method will so closely near perfection that many who previously evaded in the shadows will now be fined, imprisoned, fired from jobs, editorialized about in news entertainment sources, or written nasty letters of no import.
Scofflaws, outlaws, and the persecuted should have spaces in which to find refuge, for the establishment of these spaces also serves as sanctuaries for thought criminals, traditionalists whose practices and ideas have become illegal in modernity, and free spirits voicing politically incorrect truths only appreciated years or generations later. Some need to have safe havens from bureaucratic processing that no one ever wanted automatically enforced by human and mechanized drones.
The average professional in this country wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes home, eats dinner, and then goes to sleep, unaware that he or she has likely committed several federal crimes that day. Why? The answer lies in the very nature of modern federal criminal laws, which have exploded in number but also become impossibly broad and vague.
Those unthreatened by forceful compliance measures are already obedient, having adopted generic bland standards to avoid risking or advancing anything. Their willful prostration makes them agents the system relies upon, happily accommodating orders, actively or passively oppressing their fellow citizens, providing tolerance for abuses by the system while remaining indifferent or hostile to alternative ideas. The obedient follower facilitates the system that otherwise would face rational resistance, critical questioning, difficulty in justification, and a lack of public support for initiatives that are in the interest of the system, not the people who pay for a system contrary to their interests.
The leashes we hang on others should be loose enough to permit escape by those who need to break away on their own terms, accepting all risks and willing to leave everything behind.
