Can you fix a warfare state?

My latest is at The Libertarian Institute.

The “federal government,” does what nation-states do. It taxes us to prepare for and wage war. Any other thing it provides – roads, old-age pensions, etc. – keeps the population loyal or the tax revenues flowing. 
Even if it’s at peace a long time, war is at the heart of any nation-state.
