at this point in time. Bureaucrats love power and control. If they
could, they would make every one of use would live from birth to death
in a Matrix-like pod of some kind, chained to our desks, not being able
to take a crap without permission signed in triplicate and a background
check performed. You are right that they know they can't get away with
it at this point in time. THat is not to say that given enough media
hysteria over the right issues, and enough staged or selectively covered
events, that the majority of the voters will not beg to be enslaved at
some point.
