A few thousand? Hmmm...

Well, I can only testify to what I have experienced, and my investment returns have been excellent my entire life, 1982 and 2008 notwithstanding. That's why I'm able to retire young even though I've worked as a simple engineer my entire life.

Besides, corporations actually produce most of the modern conveniences I use, and when one is abusive to me, I simply choose not to use their products.

Governments, on the other hand, produce nothing and force you to "buy" their products. Do you know how rich I'd be if the US Government hadn't forced me at gunpoint to pay over a million into that uber-ponzi scheme called "social security"? If that's your idea of a well-run investment scheme... well, it would explain the "few thousand dollars" comment, at least. :-D
