Good job Jan

Per Murray Rothbard:

If we are the government, then anything a government does to an individual is not only just and untyrannical, but also voluntary on the part of the individual concerned. If the government has incurred a huge public debt which must be paid by taxing one group for the benefit of another, this reality of burden is obscured by saying that we owe it to ourselves. If the government conscripts a man or throws him into jail for dissident opinion, then he is doing it to himself and therefore, nothing untoward has occurred. Under this reasoning, any Jews murdered by the Nazi government were not murdered, instead they must have committed suicide since they were the government, which was democratically chosen, and therefore anything the government did to them was voluntary on their part.
