Elon musk says, The government is simply the biggest corporation, with the monopoly on violence

ELON MUSK: It does not make sense to take the job of capital allocation away from people with a demonstrated great skill in capital allocation and give it to an entity that has demonstrated very poor skill in capital allocation.

Think of the government essentially as a corporation in the limit.

The government is simply the biggest corporation, with a monopoly on violence and where you have no recourse.
