However in this case you're not even bothering to judge their ends.
You have no problem with fear, intimidation, lies and fraud. Really. Coming from the people in the gang with the guns, who can lock you up or execute you.
Specifically in case you didn't know, government officials are corrupt and are quite frequently the bad guys. They hold a monopoly on the initiation of force and that's what they always use to back up their threats. Just do a search for asset forfeiture sometime, or swat raids, free speech zones, constitution free zones, no-fly list, patriot act, NDAA, federal reserve etc.
By the way, the ends don't justify the means.
