I was just thinking about this today--under the miniarchist/Objectivist view of the State being justified for retaliatory force and arbitration, I wondered whether a Witness Protection Program would be justified for the State to fund/run.

What do you think? Is a WPP justified under an arbitration based miniarchy? Isn't it, after all, part of the arbitration process? Or is it an extragovernmental responsibility?

2 hour bump.

Deal with it.

Witness Protection allows just arbitration and judicial process.
