You said that the power structures remain after the state is REMOVED.
Was the Vietnam War run in the ABSENCE of a powerful government?
Did Nixon turn to crime to protect his PRIVATE power-base?
Did Bush start the Gulf War while he was OUT of office?
That some privileged people are able to manipulate the state's power
to their own ends, no one but a blindfolded idealist denies. This proves
NOTHING about what they would be able to do WITHOUT using the state.
The claim that "Reagan was put up as a strawman for Bush" would be
more plausible if Reagan's and Bush's economic policies were similar.

The state, as a quasi-living self-perpetuating entity, repeats the
behaviors that tend to increase its power, irrespective of whether
such behaviors are good for the society that it nominally serves.
One such behavior is war-making. (As I said before.)
