A discussion of the main points of Kerry Baldwin’s article on law and order and the question of the legitimacy of civil governance. John Locke’s three requirements for legitimate civil governance are shown to be not reasons for a limited state, but rather reasons for stateless (non-monopolistic) civil governance.
