5. Our entire culture of government control

Seems based on fear. We're fed a steady diet of attempts at fear inducement from our "leaders".

Plus there are plenty of examples of anti-social behavior, sociopathic behavior, and violent government intrusion into our lives.

Maybe the solutions the author puts forth can work someday. But today, right now, the police cannot offer better protection to me and mine than I can myself under many situations.

There is no such thing as total security. And the government, acting as puppets from their masters, create the environment that gets us to argue these points rather than seek leaders who put forth and support real solutions.
