Government needs to exist to provide transparency. Not only is the world too complex to sort out all the possible scams, but if we spent our time defending against them, we'd never get anything productive done.
I find it subtly amusing, your claim that government is necessary to ensure transparency, combined with your choice of icon. I can't help but wonder whether you intended that.

That's my default icon, so no intent there.
Oh, okay then. Rorschach -> The Watchmen -> "Who watches the watchers?" -> response to your assertion that government needs to exist to provide transparency. I thought you were being tongue-in-cheek or similarly uber-clever there.

Not primarily transparency, but accountability. Private companies are only accountable to their shareholders, government agencies are accountable to elected officials which are accountable to voters.
