To the minarchists out there, the state doesn't really need your belief or conviction. It gets by just fine by possessing the legal right to loot, kill, counterfeit, kidnap, and generally violate the law it otherwise imposes on everyone else. Why you continue to believe in the myths that this institution perpetuates about itself --how holy, how necessary, how creative, how generative of justice and fairness -- is another matter.

They won't understand, you need to learn to talk down to their level.

Wouldn't a miniarchist agree that the state needs to be regulated (power minimized) so it is only focused on providing the structure that a successful society needs to avoid the accumulation of power to a few private entities that can control a populace through economic means?

In other words a miniarchist would not give the state the power to loot, kill, counterfeit or kidnap to the state lest there is a direct attack on the institutions the gov is in charge of maintaining, such as tort law, protections of individual freedoms, etc.
