State Services and Monopoly
I am a big fan of the many services a state provides (roads, police, safe drinking water, protection from other states), but I'm not a fan of monopolies and robbery. The state uses the latter to enforce the former. Just because I oppose the state, that doesn't mean I oppose the services the state provides. On the contrary, I'm such a big fan of them, that I want greedy entrepreneurs competing for my business with promises of quality and efficiency, and bankruptcy when they fail to deliver either. Monopolies lack both, and are rewarded after failure. Monopolies for greedy capitalists are as dangerous as monopolies for "benevolent" and "enlightened" statists.
