The State doesn't do anything for it's people and the people don't do anything for the State. In fact, the citizenry actively makes every effort to avoid it's duties to the state (taxes, public debate etc.) while the State makes very little effort to provide for the people. The people don't want the State to meddle in their affairs and the State doesn't want people meddling in its.
