Examples of the War on Freedom
- See also: Gun control
Restrictions limiting and even abolishing the ability of citizens to physically defend themselves have significantly increased since the early 20th century. The right to self-defense, considered by the U.S. founding fathers as a core human right that enabled human freedom, has come under greater threat than before.

Big Tech has evolved into a form of monopolistic corporatism, asserting more and more control over personal freedoms and privacy. The technology in the hands of Big Tech – the microchip, the cell phone, GPS tracking – was developed for military use by taxpayers through the DARPA program. Patents are now held by private technocrats who wish to remake the world into their own ideological image by destroying Constitutional rights – freedom of speech, religion, freedom of association and other basic rights.
Tyranny by judges
- See also: Judicial activism
Liberals have traditionally avoided legislation and the consent of the governed to bring about social change, and have focused on judicial fiat law to impose a cultural Marxist agenda, abortion and same sex marriage being only two of dozens of obvious examples.

Growth in bureaucracy
Growth in bureaucracy comes at the cost of individual freedom. The U.S. federal bureaucracy and number of regulations – along with other western countries – has exponentially increased since the beginning of the 20th century. The permanent institutional bureaucracy, the civil service system, becomes an unelected fourth branch of government whose primary interests are often career advancement, job security, and avoiding responsibility for failure.
Socialism and environmentalism
Socialists weaponize climate science to further their political goals. They argue that the only solution to the alleged "crisis" or human-caused global warming is the adoption of globalist and socialist social and economic policies.
