All the comments about "giving up freedom" and "government screws everything up" and "why do we need the govt to be involved" is not really indicative of the truth. The "freedom" ruse isn't really freedom, it's oligarchy. Just like the "democratic" ruse isn't really democratic, it's fealty. Neither structure is great. But falling for the "freedom" but really oligarchy hasn't gone well for many nations in the past, Turkey, etc.
