When dealing with Nock, and

When dealing with Nock, and I’m no expert, it’s important to remember his distinction between “state” and “government.” I suppose one can claim he was an anarchist, though he did believe in taxation, though at the local level. He admired Jefferson, and Jefferson exposited a system of government that was a sort of ward republic, where power resided at the very local level, leaving few powers to the higher governmental structure.
