National Defense

Nobody asked but …

National Defense — Is an abstraction, and perversion, of the self-defense exception in the Non-aggression Principle. The process boils down to a process which single-mindedly defends the process itself, along with its armaments, tools, fortifications, espionage, and human resources. Armies defend forts, and supply routes, and its conscripted minions — in effect, they defend the instruments of war. This inevitably includes aggression to impose the process on every enemy and ally alike to create the appearance of invincibility.
