Honesty in Government

Pierre Lemieux, a libertarian friend of mine, has uncovered something interesting.

Turns out, notes Lemieux on his website, there is a department in the Quebec government actually called the "Directorate for the Protection of the State" (Direction de la protection de l'√Čtat).

Defenders of big government say we need a strong state to protect us; turns out the real interest of the state is to protect itself.
