Quotation for the day: Geoffrey Allan Plauché

[T]he divide between anarchists and minarchists is actually greater th[an] the divide between minarchists and (other) statists. Minarchists give away the game at the outset when they accept that a government monopoly in X or Y service (say law and security provision) is necessary. This is especially true of small government types who can’t imagine how the free market can provide, for example, roads or postal service.

  1. Thanks for the plug! And for spotting that typo (th[an]). I fixed it.
