From “On Government”

– Indeed, Daniel, our wise lady here is right. – The inquirer admitted. – If we were in the condition of submersion under another will’s control, the political process would still exist, but quite limited to the obnoxious forms of tyranny and despotism. However, we witness much cleverer means of control where the individual is led to believe that its will is of utmost importance for the institutionalized order, thus being shrewdly manipulated that it is in control of the government and not the other way around.
