It is troublesome when people are more afraid of their government than the government of their people. You can see rather strict contrasts in places like France where the government is weary of doing anything that might cause severe protests and reaction from the populace. One of the greatest problems is that a western life is made all too easy with all too many distractions from what it's government is doing. With no motivation to act on their governing rulers the people lose their freedom to live as they please rather than to live as something else dictates.
