The nature of control freaks is that they ignore the actual costs of their
actions. Is the government actually concerned with the true costs of
installing monitoring devices into every phone switch in the country? Do
they really think of the financial costs associated every little decision
designed to control our lives? The true concern is *POWER*. How they can
get it, how they can keep it, and how they can extend their grasp into more
and more of your/mine/everyone's lives.
What must be determined is how to identify control freaks and what to do
with/to them when you find them.
