Prove that it's the truth.

Can't be proven true, it's an axiom. It's a variation on the premise "Government is Evil". You either accept that axiom, or you don't.

Me, I prefer to start with the observation that government is a human construct, and whether it works for good or ill depends on who operates it, and for whose benefit. Not to mention talent, skills, character, etc. Fact is, that in some countries, people think of government as "us", not "them", and think of public service as an honourable occupation. Result: better than average government. See Norway, for example. Or Switzerland. Or Nepal.

I confess that I didn't fully realise until recently how thoroughly the US political system is one of spoils. I don't know of any other developed country in which so many government positions are in the gift of the governing party and the President. I should've known, since I recall being astonished that even the operation of the local Post Office depended on who won the last election. The Post Office! Boggles the mind. No wonder people think of government as "them". (BTW, in a Province which shall remain nameless, whether the road was paved in front of your property not so ago depended on which way you voted. It was only because too many drivers complained about the constant alternation between gravel and pavement that this practice faded away).

Have a good day,
