Yeah, that phrase "too big to fail"...It's a complete fallacy in reality. Human history is replete with governments & nations growing bigger, becoming nearly word wide empires (at least, the "known" world in their time), only to collapse. Never has an intrusive, invasive, tyrannical form of government ever stood up to the test of time...They ALL fail BECAUSE they get too big for the environment that supports them. In this case, PEOPLE are the environment; governments are created & sustained ONLY by the people. When governments grow big enough, they are doomed to collapse at one of two tipping points; when the People are no longer willing to maintain the government or no longer able to maintain the government.
