Governments around the world have killed millions of their own people, not to mention those of other countries. US government puts more people in cages than any country, ever. Most are in for doing something with no victim, except perhaps themselves. They are not guilty of force or fraud or any direct harm to anyone. The US government runs GITMO, and tries to say torture is ok. There are Executive Orders from the president that enable detaining anyone, in principle, without due process of any kind and indefinitely. Government, when it goes south, just borrows more money or prints it or takes it from the citizens and they have no choice but to pay or be thrown in a cage. The have racked up such a bill that it would take at least two generations to pay it off. And for what? So they can spy on everything we say, all that we do, every where we go in physical world and online treating us like we are all potential terrorists or innocent until proven guilty or troublesome cattle? Is that what the people trust?
Business on the other hand can do none of these things.
So WTF would any sane person trust governments more than businesses?
