I’ve seen this argument

I’ve seen this argument before and believe it useless to reason with someone who holds this position; it’s a prime example of how a word loses its meaning. However, I find it ironic that you would direct us to a website—one I’m familiar with—that has the namesake of one Ludwig von Mises, who believed in a public military, public court, and public police. Does this make Mises a socialist? The same author who wrote a devastating critique of the very system you would, no doubt, have to ascribe to him if you define socialism with such broad strokes?
