The biggest hole in libertarian fantasy is the idea that a shrunken government will stay shrunk. The voters will grow it again, or the oligarchs will buy it again.

The best you can do is have a well-educated population of voters to rein in corruption. You won't get that from a minimalist government, you need at a minimum an education system to produce well-educated voters.
