Its not wrong to question the exsistance of a standing army and perhaps the government should be more careful when it comes to foreign affairs.
This piece's purpose wasn't merely to provoke thought and illicit discussion, it was proposing that a certain type of governmental spending is wrong all the time. As you said, its a philosophy. But, since your proposing this as merely a re-evaluation of spending, I'm more worried about the government's domestic pork-barrell spending than I am about sending some aid to help folks who have the stench of rotting flesh fresh in their noses after a natural disaster.
