Is he wandering in the desert?

Of course,
the costs of this leviathan are incalculably large. The twentieth
century endured two world wars, a worldwide depression, and a forty-five-year
“Cold War” with two superpowers facing off with tens of
thousands of intercontinental missiles armed with nuclear warheads.
And yet the threat of government today, all over the world, may
well present a greater danger than anything that occurred in the
twentieth century. We are policed everywhere we go: work, shopping,
home, and church. Nothing is private anymore: not property, not
family, not even our houses of worship. We are encouraged to spy
on each other and to stand passively as government agents scan us,
harass us, and put us in our place day after day. If you object,
you are put on a hit list. If you fight to reveal the truth, as
WikiLeaks or other websites have done, you are targeted and can
be crushed. Sometimes it seems like we are living in a dystopian
novel like 1984 or Brave New World, complete with ever less economic
freedom. Some will say that this is hyperbole; others will understand
exactly what I’m talking about.
