First of all..

minarchists are not statists. Minarchism is considered a form of anti-statism. wiki is instructive...

"Statism is a political ideology where the central state, rather than the people, are the ultimate source of authority and power.[1] Statism ,tends towards increased central planning in the economic sphere and a curtailing of civil liberties, which may be deemed necessary by those in power to achieve social or militaristic goals."

Minarchism fully objects to the aggregating of power in a central authority and holds contempt towards economic central planning and seeks to maximize individual liberties.

You objected to "unicorn ranchers". I object to the dishonest (or lazy) and academically incorrect use of the term "statism" as a pejorative.
