How can the government take my house from me if I'm inside it? Actually, I suppose they have ways. They can make it almost impossible for me to sell it, for example. But, my point wasn't how powerful the government's monopoly is. My point was that the government doing that IS violence against me.
UTF you claim to have a house, they wont kidnap you they will just take the house from you.
Sorry but you are using the govt for free. govt provides roads you use em?? you pay why should i pay taxes to pave a road you use?? no sense. now if no one builds roads then good bye grocery stores. food and goods, cant get to em, unless of course private roads are built and only those that pay can use em. but how dare you even think of walking on that private road! the list of examples go on forever. garbage nah ill just throw it out back untill my back yard becomes a festering cesspool that makes you sick and kills you. Too bad for you its my yard ill do what i want, you can go to H**L.
Would you justify Harriet Tubman's enslavement because she accepted meals from her master? Of course not, and similarly it's not my fault that the government has a monopoly on roads. Just because I use roads and just because Harriet Tubman ate her master's food doesn't mean it's right to force for me to pay for roads or Harriet Tubman to pay for the food (through labor, not money). And you're right, you shouldn't have to pay for the roads that I use unless you want to.
I'm not sure why statists always seem to have a problem with privatizing roads, but they do time after time again and use it to justify using violence against me through the state to continue funding their government programs and wars.
And what is this nonsense about "you can go to H**L"? Something about people being evil if they don't have guns pointing at them forcing them to pay for government roads, perhaps?
Not using violence to force people to buy wars they don't want to is definitely not worse than forcing them to pay for the wars against their will at gun point.
Yes govt has never worked well but lack of govt has never worked at all. its a lesser of two evils situation.
as to the portion of the war how do you calculate that? where do you get your numbers from? sorry the govvt isnt even sure how much it has actually cost them.
And there's plenty of information for how much money is spent on the military/wars so it would be easily determinable if I wanted to not pay for a certain portion of the spending (military spending, Afghanistan/Iraq War spending, etc):
Oh, dang, HAITI! I forgot about that! You're right! We better start pointing guns at people or else the vast majority of us are going to lose our education, material possessions, etc, and fall into poverty! Why didn't I see it before?
Yeah i'm going overboard here a bit but your arguements make no sense it leads to a total breakdown of society, go visit haiti to see a place where govt is non existant.
Thanks for calling me a jerk. I don't think society breaks down if you stop pointing guns at people, but you don't seem to be in the mood to listen so I'll just leave it at that for now.
Anarchy doesnt work it is a pipe dream if one guy lives liek that he is just a jerk if everyone does society breaks down.
