The Argentine government is not the same thing as the State in a strong liberal democracy with functioning constitutional checks, effective rule of law, more dispersed power, etc.

Ah, but isn't the nature of the State to always expand and centralize its power, thereby reducing those checks?

And wouldn't that lead us to believe that the proper political position should be to oppose not only State power grabs but the State itself - no matter its current administrative form - since it will always tend to towards centralization and control?
