To control people, first you must chide and convince them they can't handle their own affairs; that they're always victims who need the largest gang to support them and self-promoting "expert" salesmen to tell them what to do and how to live their lives for them.
Which is how "government" itself favors group-might-made-rights and gangster extortionism (i.e: Dems).
So these libertine "liberal" criminals will always encourage slanderous victimology and the forgiving in advance of any and all crooks who claim to be victims (of society/products of their environments, or slaves of allah) while only blaming those who refuse to go along with their victimology "narrative" - i.e: those Judeo-Christian Conservatives who say "You have a free-will choice!"
To such criminals, those rational moral ones are the "mean" people who always blame the "victims" for making bad decisions, "as if - as permanent victims - they ever really had a say or choice in the matter!"
"What Big Meanies! Boo Hoo!"
They not only tell themselves that they only don't want to lose, but also that the best defense...!
Politicians and lawyers are all criminal negligents, whose motto is: "There's No Money In Solutions!"
Another sub-motto must be "If it don't need fixing, we must try to fix it anyway! If we don't rush in first, then some other fools will surely beat us to it!"
If they ever actually did the jobs we pay them to do, they'd solve themselves right out of their jobs!
So in stead, they spin easily-solved, simple problems with permanent solutions into eternal crises which have only temporary, band-aid therapies available to amerliorate the almost infinite pains which accrue from all the symptoms of deliberately not-solving them.
"Progressivism" itself is really only the logical fallacy excuse of any politician’s syllogism (to improve things, things must change; we are changing things; therefore, we are improving things) or argumentum ad novitam.
Bottom line: All governments these days are criminally negligent and endorse group-rights extortion.
Free markets, where everyone is allowed to own anything or everything, can be problems when one company can buy all the "vertical integration" (i.e: end up owning every sort of company needed for the complete production process of whatever they are selling) from top to bottom. Once that happens, they can simply ignore profits for each of their lesser stage companies, keeping those industries depressed for at-cost/ non-profit to them selves, and so make the price of their end product as cheap as it can possibly be, at which point, no one can compete with them, and they have achieved their monopoly at EACH and every lesser stage, too, while eliminating their competition at ALL those stages.
"Government" corruption, which enables them to do this, is part of the corporate competition process:
the corporazis bribe their government sales-puppet "politicians," not the other way around. In fact, most capitalists would scream that government shouldn't be allowed to infringe on the corporations' rights to own any and every thing they want to. But the end result will always be only ONE gang ends up owning everything ... including the government, at which point capitalism has seemingly "magically," yet predictably and inevitably, transformed itself into a state of single-owner communism.
And today we are living in the end-stages of this process, where the corporazis, because they are ONLY committed to the supply-and-demand of reducing costs and increasing profits by any and all means, hate paying taxes to any one any where ever, and so are hell-bent on destroying all sovereign nation countries and their governments and citizens by downsizing and outsourcing all our jobs to their 3rd-world slave-pens with their globalization treason scheme: no jobs here = no taxes here = no government here = no countries here! And of course, by promising to import ALL the lesser-expectations savage barbarians as wage slaves from those same 3rd world slave pens to here, they are all supported by the international communazis, and tribal moslems, who want free movement, wage parity and "equality" for those lowest-common denominator slaves as well. The moslems have been promised their one-world moslem ummah ruled by their caliphate government, as is obvious from all "our blunders" enabling their 'Arab Spring.' They will be used to keep us scared and subdued, Submissively shamed as racists and in line until it's all over for us.
We don't need the exercises in conspired irresponsibility called "corporate" gangs, nor fraudulent bankster "finance," to have basic capitalism, to simply create goods and make a profit, but this is the criminal's lie we've all been sold out by.
Banksters don't want money, because they already own all the money because they print it - they want to control people. They want everyone else to assume they owe the banks, which is why they constantly back everyone on each side of every war: because then the winners owe them, and the losers still owe them, while also owing reparations to the winners!
When all the land is taken, the only way to make money (maintain control) is by creative destruction:
by forever pitting everyone against everyone else in a permanent divide-and-conquer attack strategy.
We do need a government to exert force to defend our geographical territories (border security); we don't need corporate gangsters to employ us, nor to unemploy us by using our collective resources and know-how to make things elsewhere, thus implicitly breaching our border security and betraying us for only their own gains. The problem is with those humans in the government, who have been bought off by the corporate gangsters to commit treason against the rest of us, not with the existence of a government itself.
Government, (best conceived of by Albert Einstein as the largest collectively-owned insurance company) is a great idea if and when it doesn't compete with (much less pre-empt) private enterprise; it's OK for the government to buy food to feed the poor, but not to demand that only it is qualified to regulate food growing everywhere, much less to restrict and deny private individuals from growing or stockpiling their own food. Same goes for defending every other need: government can defend the country, but not restrict the citizens' rights to also own and bear their own arms to defend them selves; government can and should enhance private defense, but never replace it!
And it's based on individual property rights and people's free-will choice to associate with others:
People have rights to freely associate and form insurance companies, and to restrict others within their own properties to, say, buy insurance while therein.
