Forget about proving to

Forget about proving to certainty. Minarchists have actual evidence from history along with theory. Anarchists have theory only. How can the burden possible be put on the minarchists? Even if it was, we have more than met it by this point. Burdens shift once they are met.

That premise is wrong for a number of reasons that I dont have time to get into now but have written thousands of words on on this site. Suffice it to say that minarchists view government as a "necessary evil" for a reason. Why do you think that is? Its not just because some believe government is inevitable, that doesn't imply necessity at all. Its important to actually understand the minarchist argument, anarchists usually build strawmen to shoot down.
