    Good question!

  2. WJS says

    The cynic in me wants to say that the well-being of society isn’t high on the list of the state’s priorities. She just really loves her hammer (read: wishes to retain a large number of men-at-arms), and if she didn’t have an acceptable target to use it on, people might ask questions about why she needs the damn thing so much. Society does benefit from this arrangement, to be sure, but that’s not the same thing as it being for the benefit of society.
