How can you tell when a bureaucrat is lying? His lips are moving.
The name of the game is control. When only the State has guns, the people will have to follow orders.
The post office is a forced monpoly. They use force to get your money. They steal your money. Why can't they use voluntary methods to get your money? Why, since we are civilized, do they have to use force? This teaches the kids that force is okay - for the government to do it. Force is wrong, unless for self-defense - and this is when the State doens't want you to use force. Only they can use force. They are the new self-elected aristocrats. They are better than you and me. They have rights, we don't.
