What of those who believe any government is a danger to individual freedom and that libertarianism as such is only consistent with anarchism?

I think there are, aside from me, several libertarians who participate here, though the list is not really devoted to political philosophy.

Plus, there are other groups devoted to political philosophy, including from a libertarian perspective.)
