Fear: Using Fear to Control the Mass Population
You ever read Brave New World by Aldous Huxley?
Social control has and always will be a problem for each and every form of government.
Government is, after all, simply a mechanism with which to control a culture or society.
Laws are written with the intention of creating a blueprint for the normal functioning of the society to which they apply.
Social control will always be a problem for government because each and every human is unique.
Human uniqueness is a problem for government because what makes
one person perfectly happy is likely to make another totally dissatisfied.
For this reason it is in the best interests of government policy makers to get the populace to conform to a certain manner of social behavior that the government policy makers believe to be the best template for society. To get the populace to conform government policy makers will use any method that is socially acceptable, including enlisting corporate support and facilitation, to change the manner of behavior of the populace so that it conforms to the desired model of acceptable citizen behavior.
"It will be found, as men grow more tolerant in their instincts,
that many uniformities now insisted upon are useless and even harmful." - Bertrand Russell
