One common free-marketist argument is an expression of the Nirvana fallacy:

  • Government is terrible because it kills and coerces people.
  • If we all lived in a peaceful stateless society where nobody killed or coerced anybody else, then nobody would be killed or coerced.
  • Therefore if you don't support doing away with government, you are supporting killing and coercion.
