Statist claim: The State is Not for Profit (so better.)


Government is good because it doesn't have to make a profit, but private enterprise is evil because it tries to make a profit.


The idea that government is "not-for-profit" is a naively ludicrous one which can only be placed into the minds of government school zombies, but certainly not thinking individuals. Government profiteering comes from wasteful over-payments for violently-monopolized or even imaginary "services", building their own various agencies and institutions for the purposes of political influence, and selling favors—including permits, licenses, and other privileges [protection rackets]—for lucrative kickbacks from contracting friends. Governments define the very concepts of greed and corruption from the very moment they grant themselves special powers to finance their activities using the barrel of a gun. (Brooke Hoerr)
