is for people to believe that obedience to "authority" is a good thing, in and of itself. If you pride yourself on being a law-abiding taxpayer . . . if you cringe at the thought of someone considering you to be a "criminal" (you disobeyed a politician? Horrors!) . . . then it isn't some external authority that makes a slave of you. It's your own mind.
