Our Government is supposed to be voluntary and is to an extent. Most of us voluntarily pay taxes even though we are opposed to the principle and opposed to what our money is doing. However, one could argue that it is not voluntary since the Government forces us to pay taxes with guns. Well, they enforce it with guns when we don't volunteer.

There is no way to stop crime, only a way to discourage it by providing negative incentives to commit crime or encourage not committing crime with positive incentives.

Now that I further understand your beliefs I would call you a voluntarism supporter.

The individual who refuses to defend his rights when called by his Government, deserves to be a slave, and must be punished as an enemy of his country and friend to her foe. - Andrew Jackson
