Notice how he jumps to defense services right away

But you need coercion to provide defense services, he says. Therefore, coercion can't be all bad. Why not also use it to provide universal health care? The statists always retreat to this little intellectual fortress. Everyone agrees that the government needs to provide defense, right? Then, once you give them an inch, they take your whole hand.

Well. Not everyone. We free market anarchists say that defense services can also be provided by the market through voluntary transactions (e.g., a subscription service).
