Tyranny is really insidious. Commies and Nazis say Spain, North Korea, and the USSR were calm paradises under tyranny, but who wants to live in a prison?
Americans used to be taught to love morality, freedom, balanced budgets, and peace.
Now Americans are told to be immoral, and embrace tyranny, debt, and war.
People give up in police states.
Everything is illegal.
Why obey the law if the government and illegal immigrants don't?
The US is not a democracy.
Why try if the government has taken away your right to speak, protest, go to church, own a gun, have privacy, have property, be free from TSA groping, be free from extrajudicial assassination, be free torture, and be free from indefinite detention without trial?
You are just a slave now. Your life is over.
Why have free college if the government can just take everything you have?
When your life is a crime, who wouldn't embrace terrorism? Why not just destroy government property and kill government workers?
More destruction will lead to more repression and higher taxes. More tyranny and higher taxes will lead to more resistance until there is total war.
There are no other options.
