Is government necessary?
Many people don't like government but think it a "necessary evil". It is argued that government has a "night watchman" function to play in society. In this video Professor Ed Stringham argues that government might not be necessary even for this "night watchman" role. This is a extreme position even for many classical liberals, but its fun to see just how far you can push the no government argument.
