Very good. This tends to be one of the first reasons I give for being against any government philosophy that involves central planning and power to the state.
It's strange to me that socialists and proponents for more government have little trust for their fellow man yet trust the government to always do right explicitly.
If I had to choose between dealing with an untrustworthy government or an untrustworthy neighbor I would choose the neighbor.
Governments tend to hold monopolies on the usage of force.
THIS by itself is sufficient reason to limit the power of the government.
