The state wants you to feel the victim and for them to be your savior. Whether you feel victimized by your economic status, your race, sex or orientation, the state thrives on your victimhood.
When you come to it asking for more, It gladly gives you what you want but then takes something else of more value. Those that think something can be given without something else being taken, are like sheep being sheered while sleeping that upon waking the following morning, see it fit to blame the weather for the sudden chill.
When the sheep then turns to the state asking them to do something about it, the state provides a heated enclosure.
When the sheep dislikes the darkness, the state provides a window facing the forest where wolves can be seen.
When the sheep fears for its safety, the state provides the lock but keeps the key.
Finally when the sheep notices its brothers and sisters being taken away to the slaughter house, it asks for its freedoms back and the state says “NO!”
It is only when taking its final steps toward the butcher that the sheep notices blood flowing through pipes to keep the enclosures warm, hooves ground up and turned into adhesive to keep the windows in place, and the skin shredded for roofing material.
On the altar just before taking its final breath, the sheep notices the sheers mounted on the wall and remembers that the morning chill was not that bad after all.
