As I read this article it contends that there are certain social functions that are inherently the function of a state, and that it is somehow immoral to use private money for these purposes. This has got to be the most ridiculously counterfactual contention of this decade. NO function is or ever has been exclusively provided by a state. There are private militias, private police, private courts. Name it, there is in most societies that are not totalitarian a private alternative. Further, to leave a function up to state funding has been. now and always, here and everywhere, to invite poor funding and a an inferior result.
