I agree in principle. However, how many times through out history have we seen governments and/or dictators go for it any way? Castro's Cuba. The Soviet Union. Red China. Nazi Germany. Ect. Through out time we see people who desire to control other people and use various forms of government as the vehicle to carry out the act.

Not to mention the fact that the government doesn't have the resources to attempt it.
I suppose one could make the argument that is what all of these moves pertain to.
