Holy shit this is insane. They might as well say mistrust of government corrodes America. People don't walk around shooting police, on edge like they are. These systems are so corrupt and rife with the sadistic Lucifer Effect dictating their everyday activities. The police, from an anarchist perspective, exist solely to keep order for the corporate elite to keep the masses in line. The bureaucracy and institutions mistrust of the people is what has corroded America. America was founded on mistrust of government. Now these bastards catalog and spy on everyone. What the hell have they done to earn trust in the first place.
