Lies by and about Government

I'm from the government, I'm here to help
The number one lie. The governement can in most cases only help you by robbing Peter to pay paul. One hand in your pocket, and one hand holding out stolen cash to offer you a favor.
Governments need to run the schools because...
Balderdash. We don't let governments take over all the restaurants because some people don't have money for food. Nor should we let the governments run the schools just because they're so expensive (in part, one would think, because the government has given a monopoly on teaching to the teachers' unions). Without tax-supported schools, many more people could affford schools of their own choice. But the real reason for de-governmentizing the schools is much simpler: schooling is too important to be left up to the government!

Governments need to restrict cryptology
Sure. So only the BATF thugs will have cryptology in the USA. Right. This after they published the spec for DES in the Congressional Record, ensuring that every dictatorship in the world can have it, but U.S. citizens cannot. Hello, is this the home of the brave and the land of the free, or is it not?
