I'm asuming you're going to linnk negative paternal relationships
with "absurd distrust of the government", but whatever, I'll answer
I did'nt know my paternal genetic unit was who he was until I
was 10, though he had been in my life off and on.
My father was an idiotic drunk who abused drugs.
(I don't consider alcohol or drugs bad though.)
I dislike him, and choose to have no contact with him.
As for the government, well that is a complex answer, I do not
distrust the entire governement or think there's some big
conspiracy that everyone in the government is in on.
That said, there are many individuals and departments/agencies
of the governemtn that I do not trust.
