So what do you think? Is this the beginning of the end of the rule that the government exists to serve you?
When confronted with the awesome power of civilization whose first representatives are parents, teachers, priests (and, later on, police officers, legislators and bosses) the child faces, psychologically, the same situation as its tribal ancestors, namely, conform to the dictates of civilization or die. The helplessness of childhood makes the threat of bodily harm or loss of love, which is used by the parents and others to enforce civilized morality and civilized education, a traumatic experience. The developing little person becomes afraid to express its own tribal nature. There is much fear that lies at the bottom of becoming a civilized adult.
When the child becomes aware of ideas and impulses that oppose the dictates of civilization, s/he experiences anxiety, which is the signal for danger. It is not the insights and urges themselves that the child fears, but rather the reaction to them on the part of those in charge. Since the child cannot escape from those who control its life, s/he runs away from dangerous thoughts and feelings.

That all juveniles brought before them are to be offered community service by agreeing to register to serve with "United We Serve" as their only option for community service or full force of the law would be pursued.

Again, yes. But why would the government want to reach out and organize these people under their watch, on their own website. Why not just say it;s good to do and end it at that? The fact that they opening up a government website and encouraged organization under the federal government's watch shows they simply want to expand their power over these people.

"And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.
My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."

I think this is aimed at the American youth. She keeps talking about doing something useful this summer.
If I had a kid old enough to volunteer, I would keep her far away from this organization.
