Apple CEO Tim Cook talks about the company's philosophy in the second part of his interview with CNBC Mad Money host Jim Cramer.

"We produce products that give the people ability to do things that they couldn't do before. And in doing so, we helped change things," Cook said.

When questioned about the company's battle with the FBI over encryption, Cook noted that Apple opposed the demand that it create a backdoor into its devices because they believed it was best for America.

"I think government in general has gotten quite dysfunctional in the U.S. and in some other countries as well," Cook said. "What that does I believe is put more responsibility on the everyday citizen and companies to help promote change and improve things."

We also allow millions of products to be made overseas, because we required to pay to much in taxes. Because if we dont make many products overseas will be a failed company.

The U.S. Government is just the symptom. The U.S. People are the cause. No matter what Americans want to believe. That the politicians or the system or the cooperations are to blame. They have democracy. Meaning the people are to blame for everything.
