But no, I didn't say anything specifically to try and make him defend anything, certainly not the state.
I stated numerous times, that I understood and agreed with him that the current state couldn't be defended (paraphrased), but I was trying to get at specific details.
I do however understand that this is a tactic used to bait minarchists sometimes, which is why I kept re-iterating that I understood we both believe the current state was a failure. But I don't hold the misunderstanding against him.
I do however wish he had finished. :/
