Crony-Capitalism for the Benefit of the People (Apple-FBI Controversy)?

TRIGGER: http://www.dancarlin.com/product/common-sense-302-courts-cooks-apples

What happens when the Crony-Capitalists explicitly use their influence on Government to the benefit of their customers?

The Apple customers demand privacy. Apple strong-arms the Government (and its politicians) to keep its customers happy.

Wait. . . what?

I suppose this is a round-about way for Democracy to work, with Apple being the surrogate “enforcer” of the peoples’ will?
