Statism can take many forms. Minarchists prefer a minimal or night-watchman state to protect people from aggression, theft, breach of contract, and fraud with military, police, and courts. Some may also include fire departments, prisons, and other functions. Totalitarians prefer a maximum or all-encompassing state. Big Government, welfare state, and other options make up the middle territory of the scale of statism.
