As final judge in all matters of conflict, the occupants of the state are in a position to actually cause and to provoke conflict in order to then “solve” it to their own advantage. That is, a statist order not only produces low quality goods at excessive prices and thus promotes parasitism, but it produces evil and injustice, and it promotes, especially under democratic conditions, the development of evil characters and evil character traits.
