I am not going to burden this post with political history and whatever theory I can misstate. So lets just stick to the questions:
What is a country?
What is a flag? What is a logo?
What is a citizen? What is a consumer?
What is the Constitution? What is an End User License Agreement?
Which do you prefer, Free Speech which can be outrageous and/or offensive or the guidelines of Facebook and Twitter
Which do you trust more, Google or the US Government? Which has better governance, more transparency, accountability and legal protections?
What uses capital more efficiently, Google or the US Government?
Who will keep you safer, Microsoft or The US government?
Which is the more durable currency: Would you like your tax refund in American dollars or Facebook stock? What if you could pay your mortgage with your Facebook stock?
What is a bank? What is a Microsoft credit?
What has better service, the government or the Apple store?
Is a persons social capital a reliable indicator of a person’s credit worthiness?
