You know what’s fun? A government empowered to steal your personal belongings (your car, your house, your cash, your jewelry) for trumped up reasons, and makes it impossible to get them back. And it’s all perfectly legal.

Even better, if you’re curious about a real-life villain that would be too smarmy for fiction, just read through to the very end. Team Drugbust! Team Jesus! If you’re on those teams, you can do anything at all and you’re still a virtuous person.

Grr.

Old news, alas. Dean Koontz made it a central part of his 1994 book Dark Rivers of the Heart -- one of the few that had basically no paranormal elements in it -- and made it terrifying and easily understandable.

Ah. I have never been much of a Koontz reader. Still, seeing it in the real world is infuriating.
