We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
“He is a progressive on the home front, but he is pretty reactionary when it comes to foreign policy,” says Gloria La Riva, the 2016 presidential nominee for the Party of Socialism and Liberation. “He supported the Israeli war against Gaza. He supports the drone bombing campaigns in other countries, which is a war crime. He has said that Cuba needs to be a democracy, but we believe Cuba already truly is a system for the people there.”
I think you're oversimplifying this very important political ideal.
freedom from government means no policeman to stop the home invader, no navy to stop the pirates and no zoning to stop me from building my extremely unsafe dynamite factory next to the Farm. unless you're arguing in conclusory terms where "freedom from government" means "freedom from everything the government does that I don't like", and you're not doing that, right?
so its really a matter of balance, as with all things. what you probably want is a government enforced structure that safeguards personal liberties and balances individual rights against other individual rights against public interests. but this is a republic, and that means a lot of compromise, so no one gets whatever he wants.

Yes Donnie, all politicians (sweeping phrase) make compromises. Figuring out the tradeoff, what is gained and what it costs, is Occam's Razor at work.
Something about "the greatest good for most of Us The People".
Not sure it matters to that guy, but how many of those people wanted to be systematized?
How many would vote for less systematization (in the unlikely event the system ever bothers to ask)?
I'm not the world's biggest fan of democracy, but I'd rather suffer its vagaries than be systematized, any day. I can see myself getting behind whatever party - or candidate - that is most against systematizing people.
