Welfare-Warfare Superstructure (new glossary entry)

In debating a fellow libertarian who was disappointed that I’m not an advocate for unconditional open borders (to read why not, see my comprehensive article on the subject: The Libertarian Immigration Conundrum), I told him that one-off libertarian solutions are sometimes a trap when employed in the context of the Welfare-Warfare Superstructure. As a matter of fact, I think the corporate libertarians who are making their marks in the mainstream media often pick and choose their libertarian positions based on what their handlers sponsors prefer. (The GMOs legislation debate is an embarrassing case in point.) In any case, I thought this term was one for the glossary!
