The middle ground between government and corporations

It always amuses me when people claim that government is evil, with the corporate sector riding to the rescue on a white horse. The current situation with respect to the IoT proves this philosophy to be pablum, as unsecured IoT devices have created enormous problems, e.g. baby monitors that allow perverts from around the world to watch children at home (giving the device a random password, printed on a sticker on the device, would solve the problem). If you think government is always bad, move to Somalia.
