Hello.

The following is someone's comment below a youtube video.

It is not so much our gov't that is attacking our Freedom as it is individuals with shared goals that are working within our gov't.

Q1. Is the underlined necessary?

Q2. Can I tweak the sentence to look like the below?

Our government is not so attacking our Freedom as are individuals with shared goals that are working within our government.

Thank you.

1-- No.
2-- You have the right idea but your sentence is not grammatically correct.

Our government is not attacking our Freedom as much as are individuals with shared goals that are working within our government.
