I'm sure this will not be a popular view


but I think the real origins go back to John Birch Society, and Ronald Reagan.

The beginning of the modern era of seeing our government as being "bad", an anti-government view that believes that the government is the problem.

Our living standard is very high, we live in a country where we take for granted the public services, with corporate cooperation, of airports, water, streets with modern sewage systems, you name it, we have it and it should be understood that our standards are so high at least in part because of a governemnt that we use to control our growth. Local, state, whatever, building codes to national interstate standards. It isn't cheap, but I for one, appreciate living in such a nice place.
