While many denigrate government and think of "government" as the slimy, fake politicians scrabbling for votes every few years in the U.S., or the
faceless ones who move people like chess pieces, the actual machinery of modern society is complex and requires highly trained pros who devote
themselves to keeping all this going. I'd wager that the majority do it because they like people and civilization.
There are reasons that some people in complex professions or positions of awesome responsibility get paid enormous sums of money.
This doesn't excuse the disparity between the classes nor excuse those who benefit through no merit or effort, nor the inevitable sociopaths craving
power, but there are some consuming, difficult jobs that need to be done in order to exist like we do.
Some people have very specialized, complex skills/ data sets that need to be protected should something bad happen.
It sucks that most of us are expendable in the broad 'continuity of the species' sense... but it is true.
