Here's the conclusion:
Addressing Ohio State University's 2013 graduates last month, Obama mocked people who "warn that tyranny is always lurking just around the corner." As he explained in another speech a month earlier, "suspicion about government" makes no sense because "the government is us." If so, the government should be replaced, because none of us knows what we're doing.
