People are being exploited by corporations.
That's not too controversial.
Government is being used by corporations  as a tool to achieve that aim.
Why do something retail when you can do it cheaper and more effectively(and unobtrusively)  wholesale?
A secret £81million annual CAP payment to British Sugar plc is just the latest creaming off of public revenue .
Privatising Energy supply, Post Office, Railways, Forestry Commission, Helath Service, ...  There's a trend there somewhere.
When we privatise war by authorising security firms with powers to kill , in Iraq and Afghanistan, that confirms the ethos.
"Cutting"  government  in the name of  'big society"  is spin for the reality of dismantling the defences and letting corportations
loose on the people.
What power has a houseneedy house buyer against the corporate might and experience of a £multi milllion plc house builder/ building land owner like Woodrow/Taylor/Wimpey - (note their increasing size and decreasing competition) ?    
Without actinbg through  democratic government- the answer is  zilch.

The first step in a new democracy is to  identify the enemy.  Which is  'Priveleged, out of control corporations.'
a way of reducing their power is to revise the companies act to set a renewable  termination date to each corporate body.
and bring them down to less than person status. Thats demo cracy.
