To keep order in this country you must have laws. Good citizens don't look for ways to get around the law, they try there best to uphold it. A criminal is someone that chose to not uphold the law. Criminals are a large portion as to why freedoms are restricted. A majority of the laws in the US are geared towards safety, and to preserve life. All citizens should agree to this at some level. If schools/university's want to receive federal dollars then they must comply with all federal demands. If a company wants to do business with the military then they must comply with the long list of standards & demands. This is just how it works. If a school, university, company wants to privatize, or walk a different path that is not dependent on government money this option is available, but you can't have both.
