Why do I assert that Lauren Hall is a minarchist? The following quotes cause me concern: "government is a necessary good (or evil, depending on your viewpoint)", "the goal of constitutionalism is to find the safest balance between anarchy on the one hand and absolute, arbitrary power on the other", and the State "claims a monopoly of the legitimate use of coercive force, and we see this monopoly as good and necessary as long as we can control the monopolist." This anarcholibertarian obviously disagrees with the ideas encapsulated by these statements.
On the positive side of the ledger for this portion of the paper, the author eloquently expresses fear about "government's entanglement in biomedicine", notes that a "person or agency that holds the power of life and death needs to be monitored and controlled", and recognizes that humans should reevaluate the "long-held (though ultimately questionable) assumption that power needs to reside in some final authority who, however. limited and hedged in by institutional and social controls, has the final say."
