The Irony of the Adversary Culture

After years of Hollywood movies, newspapers, and tv and radio news piling on story after story of corruption and misconduct in government, business, and elsewhere, is it a surprise that Americans don't trust the government to do the right thing, and are skeptical about its ability to run the health care system for the public good, and not for the good of the insiders?

Well, yes and no. Hollywood has never made a movie about liberal Democrats corrupting limited government with wasteful and counterproductive spending programs, or of bureaucrats building empires by oozing concern about the poor and downtrodden. But movies about greedy, corrupt businessman are practically the norm.
