Im not against people negotiating among each other , i'm just against having a monopoly on force, which is why the word "government" can be a loaded term, it includes teachers, firemen, mailmen, etc. All benefit of these definitely benefit society, but a monopoly on force can cause "and has throughout history" millions
of innocent deaths, including many of my friends who died in Iraq.That's one of the reasons i became an anarchist.
But i appreciate your reply, and you raise some fair points.
