Re: With apologies to Archer...
The military-industrial complex is not good for business or the economy. If enough capital is invested into a system then, any security measure can be circumvented, NSA was an example of this and the result of exercising capital was that the IT industry suffered losses in the billions. The same losses might occur if capital is substituted with authority to circumvent security as it will erode consumer confidences.
On the flip side, if base security needs (food, shelter and laws) are not provided by an economy then, it too can erode business confidences.
A third player might be useful in this situation, to decide when to circumvent the security environment of private firms to arrive at an optimum outcome and when not to circumvent security. However, overtime the third player will either be viewed as biased towards the FBI or Apple, etc.
