Can you tell me why you

Can you tell me why you support a minarchist form of government?

Because it is the best available system of government in that it maximizes wealth and liberty relative to other forms.

Why you are opposed to anarchism?

Because it is too complicated a system and too detached from normality for the masses to adopt and therefore unrealistic and counter-productive to those struggling to explain to the masses even the simpler minarchist philosophy. I don't believe that a hypothetical anarchist system is that much better than a minarchist system and therefore don't see the point in undercutting our movement by promoting such a bizarre theory rather than a more palatable minarchism.

And what benefits you believe government provides, and at what levels it should be capped, etc?

Government should provide national defense, law, and courts, with a strong bias towards local as opposed to centralized government.
