We can of course see this in communist run countries where the leaders demand complete control over all the citizens. Yes, I know that these leaders make many claims, but at the end of the day, the people of their countries are not free to live their life in the way that they feel is best. No matter how you slice it, portray it, or rule it, when one takes control of others, then those people are not free.
In the United States, we are not a communist controlled country, but our political and wealthy leaders of the day make sure they control us. Yet, it does not stop there. For everyone who feels that we must only believe and worship God in the manner that the religious "pharisees" do, it limits the freedoms of everyone. In addition, you have the people who feel that we should control the actions of almost everything that is done these days in people's lives. It almost becomes like an over protecting and over bearing parent with their child concept.
