No, instead

the last thing you'd want is for anyone to have absolute control over you, like a government. If people are basically bad, you want to be free from the tyranny that others will fall into. By maintaining that every individual is responsible for his/her self, and that you do in fact have inherent rights that cannot be separated from you, you protect yourself from people in a way that no other paradigm can.

"Be a listener only, keep within yourself, and endeavor to establish with yourself the habit of silence, especially on politics." -Thomas Jefferson
