My argument was based on the government control of the means of production. They have more control of the military sector than any part of the economy. If you look at the arguments that conservative against make against other forms of economic intervention in the economy (i.e. "socialism"), most would also apply to the military.

I agree that the military is a necessary function of the government; however, this does not change the nature of the way military protection is funded and provided. Military service is funded by the government. The government controls all the major production decisions that are made. The government provides the service to every person using tax revenue as a source of revenue.

Replacing "military service" with "health care" gives: Health care is funded by the government. The government controls all the major production decisions that are made. The government provides the service to every person using tax revenue as a source of revenue. That sounds like a socialist institution to me.


The tax argument was after the fact and is not really important to the argument I am making.



Well, all I can say is, a man can have his own definitions if he wants to, but it sure makes effective communication harder.
