The market consist of free individuals and other legal entities engaging in voluntary exchange.

A corporation can live forever as opposed to any individual, and can also be dissolved. In case of a limited corporation, it does not have to pay its debt.

A state is obviously also immortal, has monopoly on violence, and can impose taxes. The violence part seems contrary to free as in free market. Can a state be regarded as a form of corporation, or is it some other kind of animal entirely?

If one can not confer upon another a right which he does not himself first possess, by what means does the state derive the right to engage in behaviors from which the public is prohibited?

Indeed, a corporation that claims a regional monopoly on the industries of security and justice. And proceeds to provide the same "great" service one would expect from a monopoly.
