The relevance is that you're saying that the government should be involved in less things because it is bad at them. If the government is not involved, then someone else (presumably private enterprise) is going to be doing them instead.

If those other people are no better or are even worse, then what you said doesn't make any sense.

People like Epstein have to be locked up. Certainly something has gone seriously wrong here with him being removed from suicide watch and then committing suicide. However, ideological determinations of what that *something* is are unlikely to help, the actual root cause should be found and that needs empirical investigation.
