True, enough, Harry. Government is not inherently bad and none of us ever said so. Straw men creators like you are inherently bad. Lying, thieving senators like you are inherently bad. Stinking excrement is inherently bad-smelling.

>>because they did not believe in government in any level<<

But yes we do Harry. Government that protects our borders, provides infrastructure....you know, all the things set forth in a lil know document to y’all called the constitution.

Government is too damn big, too damn intrusive, too damn expensive.

Exactly, add to that those who wish to control more and more aspects of our lives.

“True, enough, Harry. Government is not inherently bad and none of us ever said so.”

Actually, any organization is focused on its own agenda and not on the public’s agenda. It is much more important to have a flagpole that is higher than the one across the street, and a more prestigious building, than it is to serve the public. Organizations create faceless processes where tiny people whose only power is to say “no” get to decide for the customer what that customer will get.

Because of organizational psychology, organizations, governments, become evil almost from the get-go. Why do you think so many people loath their jobs? They’re forced to do ridiculous things that do not serve what they’ve been told their function is. As an example, I was told to hire two software developers, which was on of my boss’ G&O’s. Then, my boss did not allow me to purchase them their development tools and they both left. It turns out that my boss got to keep a percentage of his unspent budget; which in this case was about $200 added to his $55,000 bonus. (Money is how you keep score.)
