In order to have a government we can trust (to do those big things and act in our interest) we need democracy. Political life was democratised a long time about but economics never was. If we democratise finance and work then I think much of the antagonism between the individual and the state disappears.

Of course we need bottom-up democracy for this to have any meaning. The more remote power becomes the less we can and should trust it.
