Dylar, your words describe a worldview, and that worldview describes a state, and that state is something of a phenomenon. Not a very good one, but certainly an interesting one.
It seems impossible to describe to the young, a civilized state in which personal freedom is not the be-all-and-end-all. I say personal freedom, because it differs substantially from actual freedom.
When one is competently led, by a competent leader, many arduous stresses are removed from daily life.
One no longer has to have opinions about absolutely everything, or need to decide what to go along with, or not.
One's path is clear, meaning one may go along that path, or elope to be personally responsible for one's survival, rather than have the state be responsible, in return for services-rendered.
There is a great deal of freedom inherent in the old style of strong leadership over a nation. And a great deal of dignity, which is something most moderns don't even know the meaning of, since it is entirely missing at this point.
Personally, I have always opted out of civilization, because it really never suited me, or me it. But I never saw it as flawed, or lacking, or in any way undeserving of continuation, until recently.
It's one sick puppy nowadays.
