... To be governed is to be at every operation, at every transaction, noted, registered, enrolled, taxed, stamped, measured, numbered, assessed, licensed, authorized, admonished, forbidden, reformed, corrected, punished. It is, under the pretext of public utility, and in the name of the general interest, to be placed under contribution, trained, ransomed, exploited, monopolized, extorted, squeezed, mystified, robbed; then, at the slightest resistance, the first word of complaint, to be repressed, fined, despised, harassed, tracked, abused, clubbed, disarmed, choked, imprisoned, judged, condemned, shot, deported, sacrificed, sold, betrayed; and, to crown all, mocked, ridiculed, outraged, dishonored. That is government; that is its justice; that is its morality."

Idée Générale de la Révolution au XIXe Siècle [The General Idea of the Revolution] (1851)

Well jeez, I tried to find one adjective that doesn't fit our current situation ....

Difference is, he was talking about France in 1851 when there were still places one could go to escape all those adjectives. Is there anywhere left to go, or have we been cornered?

Yeah there are plenty lawless thrid world places you can go, not exactly places you would want to go. But one thing i have noticed is that people who claim to hate the government are usually the first one to start long rants about the constitution and their rights.
