Try sticking to your earlier version: "cryto appears to help gov more than individuals", since most folks might agree with that...
so then our dilemma is clear, as the task ahead becomes "how can we have any particular $TECH be benefit more to the people than gov".

False dichotomies are a cheap way to end a conversation.
Sometimes a false dichotomy can be a useful conversational technique - e.g. as a shit test, an IQ test, a conversation end game (if you've had enough), and perhaps more.
But overuse becomes tiresome and "cheap".

That's a difficult argument to dispute, because rather than being an argument, it's a fact.
Our dilemma is not an easy one...

Juan, your presentment is often very enjoyable, often bring smiles, laughter and chuckles because there is a lot of truth in what you say.
