    I always wonder why people say, "I don't trust the government". It is like the government is going to take your life or something.

    Because power corrupts.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I knew someone would fall for the bait.

    Some people do not realize that the Private Industry holds a lot more power than people give it credit for. And truthfully the private industry dictates your life more so than the government.

    I also hate it when people say "Don't trust the government, let the Free Market take care of it."

    Of course you should. Do you think that people who aren't left-wing automatically trust business leaders? That's absurd.

    If that the case, who can we trust. What is trust?

    The propaganda is hurting my eyes.

    Yeah, the government never kills innocent people. . .
