Debts and Debtors

Nobody asked but …

A trifling debt makes a man your debtor; a large one makes him an enemy.

— Seneca the Younger
What must the people, then, be to the government?  The government has made massive debtors of each and every one of us.  Do we, thereby, have massive enemies?  Are these enemies ones whom we have chosen, or has our own government made these enemies for us?  Is our government, by virtue of this arrangement, a friend to its people or to the peoples’ enemies?
