One thing everyone wants is to earn something for free, they expect the government to have free things, but all of this comes at a price. The government charges high taxes to provide services to the population and companies in turn increases the price to offset the tax paid.
All this becomes a vicious cycle, in the end some companies end up benefiting from cheap loans offered by the government and of course sometimes the government of the free for business. So I always say who wins something for free is just friends of the 'king' that in the case are the mega corporations.
Even in cartoons shows that whoever tries to earn something without paying the price, pays a much higher price because of this and this is a case of fullmetal alchemist.
In addition to taxes, the government is also increasingly taking individual liberty out of people.
