Welcome to understanding government.
We in the self-defense rights world have the most obvious indicator of government criminality and lust for power: disarming decent people. Think about it for just a moment. How much respect for others can any government official really have if he is willing to render good people defenseless in the face of aggression? All the stats about gun violence (sic), all the rhetoric about preventing school shootings, all the arguments about making communities safer cannot cover up that one glaring point: one must have complete and utter lack of respect for other human beings if he is willing to render them defenseless in the face of aggression.
It don't take much logic to guess that other kinds of abuses might arise.
And, I'll back up one step. Consent. What kind of person is willing to govern (sic for rule) another without his express consent, telling him what to do, what he can't do, coercing payment (taxes)? If a person, or a group of them, are willing to do that to others, then its no surprise at all to find all the other garbage, corruption, criminality, and depravity that comes to light continuously. Who could be surprised?
Its a little short-sighted to stand around and demand and howl about government abuses, demanding government behave within certain limitations, when individual express consent to be governed is so obviously missing. What did we think was gonna happen?
If a king, dictator, president, or majority is willing to rule others without the individual consent of each governed person, then it is no surprise at all when corruption, depravity, and criminality follows.
