Taxation is Theft, therefore Government is Slavery,
therefore Voting is an Act of Violence.
IF you IGNORE the empirical factuality of these observations,
fail to recognize them to be true by logic and definition,
or fail to reach the correct and logical conclusion that:
it is immoral, wrong, supremely detestable, etc.,
to condone or participate in "government", then...
I propose this is because you have been BRAINWASHED, dumbed-down and indoctrinated
to inhibit or disable even consideration of these ideas,
never-mind educate yourself and engage enough thought process to actually understand them--
conditioned to group-think rather than taught how to actually think for yourself.
With the conditioned reflex of a fish in a school, or a denizen of 'The Matrix',
you will probably argue in defense of the very system of our enslavement
to mass murderers and unspeakable evil: "government".
This sentiment of suckers, typifying the rampant COWARDICE infecting society,
is based on a fear and loathing so very glorified by our "culture" of statism:
that of personal responsibility to acknowledge truth and act morally.
Your IGNORE-ance of these obvious facts is an insult to the entire human race,
including yourself, and is on my list of things that are worth being angry about.
But I don't expect many to understand or agree, due to pervasive stupidity.
No offense to anyone...
After all, 99%+ of people on this madhouse planet are insane, supremely ignorant cowards
who will accuse me of being the crazy/stupid one. Wake up. Grow a set. Educate yourself...

"It is self-evident that no number of men, by conspiring, and calling themselves a government, can acquire any rights whatever over other men, or other men's property, which they had not before, as individuals. And whenever any number of men, calling themselves a government, do anything to another man, or to his property, which they had no right to do as individuals, they thereby declare themselves trespassers, robbers, or murderers, according to the nature of their acts." - Lysander Spooner
"The belief in "authority," which includes all belief in "government," is irrational and self- contradictory; it is contrary to civilization and morality, and constitutes the most dangerous, destructive superstition that has ever existed. Rather than being a force for order and justice, the belief in "authority" is the arch-enemy of humanity." - Larken Rose, The Most Dangerous Superstition
"Those who believe that "Authority" is necessary and that it must continue, have actually been duped into believing that human SLAVERY is necessary and must continue in order to prevent Chaos. Violence and Slavery CAN NOT prevent Chaos. Violence and Slavery ARE Chaos. The Fear of the possibility of Chaos IS the Fear of True Freedom" - Mark Passio (WhatOnEarthIsHappening.com)
"The essence of all slavery consists in taking the product of another's labor by force. It is immaterial whether this force be founded upon ownership of the slave or ownership of the money that he must get to live." - Leo Tolstoy
"Through taxation, pacifists are forced at gunpoint to pay for killing machines; vegetarians are forced at gunpoint to subsidize grazing land for cattle; non-smokers are forced at gunpoint to support both the production of tobacco and the research to counter its impact on health." - Dr. Mary Ruwart, Healing Our World
"There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want, merely because you think it would be good for him." - Robert A. Heinlein
"Naturally the common people don't want war: neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship." - Herman Goering
"A people that elect corrupt politicians are not victims... but accomplices." - George Orwell
"Voting has become a farce, if indeed it was ever anything else. By voting, the people decide only which of the oligarchs preselected for them as viable candidates will wield the whip used to flog them and will command the legion of willing accomplices who perpetrate the countless violations of the people's natural rights." - Robert Higgs
"Having been convinced that "authority" is real, and that by way of it, some human beings have acquired the moral right to initiate violence and commit acts of aggression against others (by way of so-called "laws"), every Democrat, every Republican, every voter, and everyone else who advocates "government" in any form is a proponent of violence and injustice. Of course, they do not see it that way, because their belief in "authority" has warped and perverted their perception of reality." - Larken Rose
"The disappearance of a sense of responsibility is the most far-reaching consequence of submission to authority." - Stanley Milgram
"Loyal obedience to "authority," while painted by many as a great virtue, is really nothing more than a pathetic attempt to escape the responsibility of being human and reduce oneself to an unthinking, amoral, programmable machine." - Larken Rose
"Anarchism is not a romantic fable but the hard-headed realization, based on five thousand years of experience, that we cannot entrust the management of our lives [abdicate responsibility] to kings, priests, politicians, generals, and county commissioners." - Edward Abbey
"Anarchism: A Philosophy of a new social order based on liberty unrestricted by man-made laws; the theory that all forms of government rest on violence, and are therefore wrong and harmful, as well as unnecessary." - Emma Goldman
"The understanding of Natural Law is centered upon bringing our own Conscience into alignment with Objective Morality." - Mark Passio
"The thought of how far the human race would have advanced without government simply staggers the imagination." - Doug Casey
"To say an anarchist society would be devoid of morality ignores the entire reason people are anarchists. The only reason to be an anarchist is the realization that the state itself is an immoral institution. Anarchism is rooted in a belief in morality." - Fred Autonom
"Anarchists did not try to carry out genocide against the Armenians in Turkey; they did not deliberately starve millions of Ukranians; they did not create a system of death camps to kill Jews, gypsies, and Slavs in Europe; they did not fire-bomb scores of large German and Japanese cities and drop nuclear bombs on two of them; they did not carry out a 'Great Leap Forward' that killed scores of millions of Chinese; they did not attempt to kill everybody with any appreciable education in Cambodia; they did not launch one aggressive war after another; they did not implement trade sanctions that killed perhaps 500,000 Iraqi children. In debates between anarchists and statists, the burden of proof clearly should rest on those who place their trust in the state. Anarchy's mayhem is wholly conjectural; the state's mayhem is undeniably, factually horrendous." - Robert Higgs
"If you endorse a system of violence and coercion that threatens me with force on a daily basis, and I advocate for the abolition of that system, this is not just some difference of opinion where we can simply agree to disagree. You are actively participating in conspiracy to commit theft, assault, kidnapping and murder. There is no other context in which anybody would find this an acceptable pattern of behavior, the fact that billions of people across the globe allow you to be a willing participant in violent crime doesn't mean that you are entitled to the opinion that violent crime is a good thing, you have no right to be that wrong." - Chris Cantwell
"Disobedience is the true foundation of liberty. The obedient must be slaves." - Henry David Thoreau
"If you personally advocate that I be caged if I don't pay for whatever government things YOU want, please don't pretend to be tolerant, or non-violent, or enlightened, or compassionate. Don't pretend you believe in live and let live, and don't pretend you want peace, freedom, or harmony." - Larken Rose
"I wonder how many such men in America would know that Communism, The New Deal, Fascism, Nazism, are merely so-many trade-names for COLLECTIVIST STATISM, like the trade-names for tooth-pastes which are all exactly alike except for the flavouring." - Albert Jay Nock
"Democracy is also a form of religion. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses." - H. L. Mencken
"There can be no socialism without the state, and as long as there is a state, there is socialism. The state then is the very institution that puts socialism into action; and as socialism rests on aggressive violence directed against innocent victims, aggressive violence is the nature of any state." Hans-Hermann Hoppe
"Taxation of earnings from labor is on par with forced labor. Seizing the results of someone's labor is equivalent to seizing hours from him and directing him to carry on various activities." - Robert Nozick
"Interestingly, even those who talk about "representative government" refuse to accept any personal responsibility for actions taken by those for whom they voted. If their candidate of choice enacts a harmful "law," or raises "taxes," or wages war, the voters never feel the same guilt or shame they would feel if they themselves had personally done such things, or had hired or instructed someone else to do such things. This fact demonstrates that even the most enthusiastic voters do not actually believe the rhetoric about "representative government," and do not view politicians as their representatives." - Larken Rose
"...the American government you see today is exactly what its designers wanted when they designed it, and the excuses given by American "patriots" not to burn it to the ground today are the same weak excuses they gave at every stage of its development since 1787. The Constitution of the United States of America was and is a document of enslavement intended to fool the weak minded while pacifying those who possess the moral fortitude and intelligence to stand up to tyranny." - Sedition, Subversion and Sabotage Field Manual No. 1 (fb.com/BadQuakerDotCom)
"Political parties are disease vectors. They are hybrid cocktails of the milgram experiment and the stockholm syndrome with a strong police state chaser to set the virus in place. The virus is used to render an otherwise healthy ecology of spontaneous order into a shambling and largely inefficient engine for selecting a group of controllers to benefit at the expense of the whole. It is no more complex than that." - (zerogov.com)
What makes sex not rape?
Consent. What makes a job not slavery?

"Mutualism is applicable to every human relations. Throughout the whole gamut of existence, from birth to death, mutuality--voluntary association for reciprocal action--is everywhere and at every moment waiting to solve every problem of social intercourse, to decide every issue that arises in commerce and industry. In order to practice mutualism, it is necessary to name only two conditions; that the non-invasive individual shall not be coerced, and that no part of the product of any one's labor shall be taken from him without his consent. With those negative generalizations thus postulated, thereby affirming the sovereignty of the individual, therefrom flows naturally the positive and constructive corollary--reciprocity; which implies individual initiative, free contract, and voluntary association." - Clarence Lee Swartz, The Practicability of Mutualism
"Those who advocate either slavery or income taxation should be ashamed of themselves. Genuine freedom entails the abolition, not the reform, of income taxation and the IRS, just as genuine freedom entailed the abolition, not the reform, of slavery." - Jacob G. Hornberger
"Freedom is the societal condition that exists when every individual has 100% control of his own property." - Andrew Joseph Galambos
"Statement of Purpose: Voluntaryists are advocates of non-political, non-violent strategies to achieve a free society. We reject electoral politics, in theory and in practice, as incompatible with libertarian principles. Governments must cloak their actions in an aura of moral legitimacy in order to sustain their power, and political methods invariably strengthen that legitimacy.Voluntaryists seek instead to delegitimize the State through education, and we advocate withdrawal of the cooperation and tacit consent on which State power ultimately depends." - (voluntaryist.com)
"You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and following its decrees. An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil. A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul." - Mahatma Gandhi
"The system cannot be fixed by the system." - Tom Morello
"The most dangerous thing you can do is educate people. Because when people become educated, you cannot control them, you cannot frighten them. People who are educated know their own power, and don't surrender it to others." - Jordan Maxwell
"Our countries are corporations and the world is a business controlled by a small group of untouchable banking families. The laws that control our society have been meticulously structured over thousands of years to protect the corporations, while giving us the illusion that we are free. We, the people, are blissfully ignorant that we are the slaves and the assets of those who control the business. It is time to wake up and free ourselves. Nobody will do this for us. The universe awaits our action, so that it can respond through the law of attraction, and welcome humanity into the universal community of beings of higher consciousness." - Michael Tellinger, UBUNTU Contributionism
"Using these new and old technologies, dissent and original thought are being ripped from us. Traditions of individual sovereignty and freedom are being expunged from our minds and from the history books. And, due to the multitude of anesthetics we have been shot up with, we don't feel a thing. If we do not succeed in stopping the Controllers, ultimately the only people left will be the marching morons, the gullible, and those so apathetic as to have entirely forgotten that freedom can exist." - Jim Keith, Mass Control: Engineering Human Consciousness
