[FoRK] National Defense is Not a Public Good (proof; interesting, useless)

Nice proof, but relatively useless given reality and game theory.   
(I.e., it's only *not* a public good if nobody else has it.  And with  
any possibility of eventual "defection" from universal non- 
malevolence, you're screwed.)
