You seem to be missing the point of his post. He is not interested in government to protect borders. He said very clearly that he wants government to protect "business." That is to say, he wants government to artificially increase the rate of wealth creation. I suppose he also recognizes that this will be at the expense of others and constitutes a system of immoral exploitation, but he feels that his perceived "benefits" are worth it.

We probably have to convince such people both of the immorality and the true benefits of sustainable (slower and more thoughtful) growth. I am convinced that we are on the right side here, so it's just a matter of time.
