What about the merriam dictionary is uneducated? Define educated?
Our government is a coming together of people. There are 350,000,000 US citizens, give or take. There are, what, less than 10,000,000 government employees? Even less if you only count the leaders. At any point, any day of the week, any time of day, should the vast majority of people no longer consent, they can, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
Your problem is, the vast, over whelming majority of people, while maybe not HAPPY with the way things currently are, are still fine with the government they've got.

If you have some alternative to a democratic government that would do a better job protecting people's rights, ensuring an orderly society, and promoting prosperity, please share it. Otherwise, all of this tedious whining about government as a concept (rather than reasoned criticism of specific ideas and aspects of our government) is just annoying.

Yes, government does restrict some freedoms to promote the greater good of provided freedom for all. There are limits in freedom of movement and other limitations of freedom but that is to provide general freedom and safety for everybody in the United States. Sometimes the government needs to limit some freedoms to make sure other freedoms are not infringed upon.

BLADE BABE STRIKES AGAIN!!!
I'm not an american and I think it is important to consider that goverment also gives freedom. For example it only through tax funded free of charge school every child can get a good education. Their that education gives a lot of freedom to the indivual at the same time it benefit the entire society.
Think also how much restricted we as individual and consumers would be if it was not the goverments job through regulation and laws to see that the product we buy is safe. Because think of the hundreds of diffrent products we buy anything from sausages, cars, microvawe, guns and milk. How would we have the time to self find out if all the product we bought would not hurt us directly like for exampel stomach ill or exploding gun to long term effects like cancer? Escpecially since coperations will always spend alot of money on both open and covert marketing to make us believe their products is safe.

I believe the State restricts freedom.

It's not a valid question. Just because you have the ability to do a thing doesn't mean you have the freedom to do that thing. Nobody in their right mind is going to complain that the government doesn't allow them the freedom to shoot people in the streets and poison the town's water supply. What any individual is free to do is determined by society and codified into law by society's legislative arm, the government.
Why people don't get that, I'll never know.
