> BillK, this is all much more understandable if you recognize the primary focus of business and government is not to help people, but rather to make money and seize power.  Business is about making money.  Government is about seizing power.  Once you understand that, everything makes perfect sense.  They don't want to harm people, they are fine with helping people.  But... it is about money and power.

Oh, I understand it OK. Just like I understand what the Mafia, drug
dealers, ransomware gangs and Nigerian scam gangs do.  I'd just rather
stop them from harming people, even if it reduces their profit a bit.
