We create the government.
It follows societies subconsciousness.
And it morphs into what our society wants it to whether or not they know it.
And we've created a monster because we have become monsters ourselves.edit on 7-12-2010 by freedish because: (no reason given)

I don't think it's as simple as that. The media are the ones who shape our opinions, they are the ones who breed fear, etc. Therefore, one could argue it is the media who make the government do what they do. In turn, some would argue that the media are in the governments pocket, so it is the government who make the media make us feel the way we do. People are too impressionable and reliant on the system nowadays, it's too easy for them to exploit via propaganda and fear mongering.edit on 8-12-2010 by ScepticalBeliever because: typo
