I caught myself being contradictory

I caught myself being contradictory, so I deleted the following sentence out of a blog-in-process:
But being pro-peace means being anti-violence; and that includes violence from the state against individuals. You can't have a fully-orbed pro-peace philosophy if you are pro-violence somewhere down the line in your thinking.
This means I can never be fully libertarian in the Rothbardian sense of the word.

The truth is that I do believe in government force, but only where it is legitimate.

As one high-level person in the Libertarian Party once told me, under the Libertarian Party, 90 percent of government would shrink at all levels.

That's pretty much what biblical law would do as well.
