All criminals make the same claim.

What on earth would make me believe that your definition of crime is not a definition of crime? You employing words to twist my mind so as to remove my power to discern the accurate difference between a legitimate, moral, justified, reasonable, equitable, authoritative action and the counterfeit versions?

"Perhaps my definition of government will help: Government is the idea that certain people (those who govern) can legitimately do what it would be immoral for just regular people (the governed) to do."

OK, I do speak before I think sometimes. All criminals don't make the same claim as the one you are now making, concerning the definition of crime you offer as a definition of government.

Some criminals don't care to hide their crimes.
