This essential truth should not be surprising, as it is the very nature of government to suck up the resources of the population it purports to “govern,” in times of relative peace as well as in times of war. There is absolutely no way that government can “create” anything--it can only take away or destroy. That’s all it can do. If it is “providing” something to someone, it is doing so only by the means of taking something away from someone else. To forcibly transfer something from one individual’s hands to another’s is, obviously, not really “providing,” it’s stealing, and indeed it is destroying, as the plundered individual gets absolutely nothing in exchange. The State is a parasitic leech.
