I'll speak for myself Derek (even though you didn't ask me)...no, I seek
no protection from the US government. I don't think I need any
protection from the US government. I just want the government out of its
presumed monopoly on defense.
On the other hand, if I were a US oil company trying to secure my
control of production in a hostile region, I'd certainly want to
"socialize" the protection of my private interest and "share" the cost
as much as possible to secure my position as a primary provider rather
than allow the market to determine the way the product flows to the
consumer. However, that wouldn't be Libertarian.
