Confusion of words

The obvious example of a working free market defense was the example provided in America between 1776 and 1787.

If someone pays a voluntary payment of some kind into a COLLECTIVE FUND for the purpose of mutual defense, then that transfer of power from many people into a single FUND can be understood as an example of socialism.

Many volunteers volunteer to lend moral and material support to a common defense effort and those voluntary acts by those volunteers can be understood as a capital investment of their private earnings into a profit making venture that pays immeasurable dividends to each investor in the form of Liberty, and that can be understood as an example of capitalism.

From each volunteer according to their ability to invest into a capital investment to each according to their need for the immeasurable dividends paid out as profit in the form of Liberty, or free markets, as all the enemies of Liberty are driven out, defended against, by the defenders socializing in this capital investment that can be called National Defense: so long as it remains strictly voluntary.

That is the Federal design of the social capital investment of government.

Second, federalism permits the states to operate as laboratories of democracy-to experiment with various policies and Programs. For example, if Tennessee wanted to provide a state-run health system for its citizens, the other 49 states could observe the effects of this venture on Tennessee's economy, the quality of care provided, and the overall cost of health care. If the plan proved to be efficacious other states might choose to emulate it, or adopt a plan taking into account any problems surfacing in Tennessee. If the plan proved to be a disastrous intervention, the other 49 could decide to leave the provision of medical care to the private sector. With national plans and programs, the national officials simply roll the dice for all 284 million people of the United States and hope they get things right.

Experimentation in policymaking also encourages a healthy competition among units of government and allows the people to vote with their feet should they find a law of policy detrimental to their interests. Using again the state-run health system as an example, if a citizen of Tennessee was unhappy with Tennessee's meddling with the provisions of health care, the citizen could move to a neighboring state. Reallocation to a state like North Carolina, with a similar culture and climate, would not be a dramatic shift and would be a viable option. Moreover, if enough citizens exercised this option, Tennessee would be pressured to abandon its foray into socialized medicine, or else lose much of its tax base. To escape a national health system, a citizen would have to emigrate to a foreign country, an option far less appealing and less likely to be exercised than moving to a neighboring state. Without competition from other units of government,the national government would have much less incentive than Tennessee would to modify the objectionable policy. Clearly, the absence of experimentation and competition hampers the creation of effective programs and makes the modification of failed national programs less likely.

Free Market Government Socialism through Capital Investment for private investors who are paid immeasurable dividends as their exclusive profit at the expense of only the criminals who would otherwise enslave everyone under their Involuntary Associations

If you don't see it, that does not mean it did not exist, and if you think that your failure to see the obvious FREE MARKET solutions to the problems created by criminals (with or without badges of false authority) makes those FREE MARKET solutions vanish, then you deceive yourself, not me.
