Hecoobuh I fully understand your opinion, and largely share it.
For me there is no greater garbage than the government, regardless of the field.
I have to say that in a certain way I understand why people do not see governments as a threat, since the development of the society in which they now live comes largely from the vestiges of the cold war, and that is that the current form to understand the government by society lies in how the various "capitalist" states adapted and intervened in capitalism, creating "welfare states", to combat and win the game against the "communist" side.
The society in which we live has grown living in a system in which the basic premise is "the government loves and protects you, so you must give it more power so that it loves and protects you better" when it is not like that at all, and today today in the vast majority of countries to talk about lowering or removing taxes, deregulating, liberalizing, decentralizing... are practically taboo subjects, when in fact it is that forced and almost tyrannical influence of governments on the diversity of issues that affect us in the day to day the fundamental basis by which we go deeper and deeper in the vast majority of occasions in the problems we have.
I am not going to tell youthat all is lost, there are companies (some of them mentioned among the alternatives shown by Privacy Tools) that are openly critical of governments and companies affiliated with them, or benefiting from laws they believe or not (although Personally, I believe that a good part of these criticisms are misguided, since they believe that the problem is monopolies or the lack of laws, when the reality is that monopolies are often born under the influence of laws created by states with the idea of benefit from the companies that make up these monopolies), and and it seems that they fight within their possibilities to provide their users with greater freedom and privacy in the field in which they work, and (at least in Spain) it seems that little by little this awareness is appearing in ordinary people.
It is not a question of mounting a revolution, nor would I donate an iota of my hope to humanity, but at least in terms of trends, it seems that changes await us in the future.
Anyway, and paraphrasing my description: Let's fight for our privacy, and let's die for our freedom. All the best.
