: The only way to truely have less government is to destroy capitalism.

: In an odd way you are right. Destroy individual rights to property and you destroy prosperity. State can only survive on the produce of others - reduce produce and state shrivels.

: Throwing the baby out with bathwater though.

Property rights means the denying of access and the full benefit of something, just because of claimed ownership. To d3eny someone this it has to be inforced and to enforce something you have to (in one form or the other) govern and control. There for, property rights are inconsistent with freedom and the destruction of the state and freedomcan ownly be gained through equality and mutual benefit.
