What happened to individual responsibility and accountability?

“The principal task of the State today is to justify its own existence. To do so, it has to annihilate society’s capacity to survive by itself. Surreptitiously undermining all forms of spontaneous regulation, deregulating, desocializing, breaking down the traditional mechanisms of bodies and antibodies, in order to substitute its artificial mechanisms—such is the strategy of a State locked in a subtle struggle with society—exactly like medicine, which lives off the destruction of natural defences and their replacement by artificial ones.”Jean Baudrillard

Jean Baudrillard was a French sociologist, philosopher and cultural theorist. He is best known for his analyses of media, contemporary culture, and technological communication, as well as his formulation of concepts such as simulation and hyperreality. Wikipedia

Our government gets bigger and bigger, more expensive and deeper in debt. It strives to do everything for everyone with the consequence of reducing our liberty (freedom).
