Same old story of dictators tyrants and thugs.

They make laws and rules then they recite this poem.

Its good for thee but not for me.

Eminent domain, health care, investing with insider knowledge, any law on the books as long as its a cop, extorted theft they call tax, Military CONSCRIPT (kidnapping others children forcing them to the military to kill people, draft and recruitment, and last but not least, just about anything.

Complicit in the counterfeiting of the Fed Reserve, terrorism planning and propaganda, invasion of homes, revenue collections fines penalties etc..., drivers license, safety inspections, being armed they arm themselves usually with a mufti million dollar security escorts paid by counterfeit national debt.
Private air transportation the cost again put upon the so called public debt.

Not as profound as it looks

All the things in the right column are only crimes if there's a government in the first place. To call them crimes in the absence of a law that gets enforced for all people makes no sense. In the law of anarchy, might is right and the devil take the hindmost.

Troll

It's not necessary to have a monopoly on law, in order to call a violation of the NAP, a crime.

But to a hardcore statist such as yourself, I know this is difficult to see.

Going to print and frame this on my wall

Thanks Allegory!

A better choice

than Mafia tribute might have been Racketeering or Extortion.

And Bailouts might be more fitting as Grand Theft or Embezzelment.

Actually, I believe "tax" is most accurately called "protection"

Google is government.

No Knock Raid

Could also be armed home invasion.

Legal vs. vernacular terms

Conscription is the legal fiction that a certain number of armed person can morally coerce/i.e, "conscript", your voluntary involvement in their life or death struggle; for which ONLY you, and your heritage, will risk suffering loss.

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

Brevity is soulfully served wit, here

I love this simple juxtaposition, listed in a way that anyone, on either side, can easily see as the intentional abuse of language by government, and the unavoidable abuse of rights their language has imposed.

Now is the time to share this kind of easy breakdown with everyone at all ends of this spectrum, to encourage folks with short attention spans to better to connect the dots, and help those who might make the immoral decision of serving tyrants, rather than God.

This is great!

I was thinking about posting WORDS that have been hijacked and dont have the real meaning anymore and your list is kinda like that. The other day someone said i am gay and i sad you are happy?. they said no i like men i said well gay means happy not that you like dudes and ended up telling him that his culture hijacked a word. i get it but think about how many words and phrases have been hijacked. Political language is something that has transformed America i believe.

Think about it affirmative action? Civil rights? Gay rights? Woman rights? Assault Weapon? help me out lol

THE CLASS OF CITIZENS WHO PROVIDE AT ONCE THEIR OWN FOOD AND THEIR OWN RAIMENT, MAY BE VIEWED AS THE MOST TRULY INDEPENDENT AND HAPPY.
