This boils down to who has a gut understanding of free markets, and who doesn't. Those that understand free markets rightly see increasing government as the enemy of freedom and prosperity. Those that can't fathom the checks and balances inherent in free markets most often resort to something they do understand: more control by bigger government.

That's it, Stuart. It's not that the statists don't trust the system to self regulate. They just don't want to give it the opportunity to do so. There is no power over others in that.
