By any other name...

I'm happy with "government" without taxation, though many will say there can be no such thing. I'm happy with "voluntary taxation," though many will say there can be no such thing.

All I can say is: If you want to keep your words "government" and "taxation," then you need to figure out a way to do it on some other foundation than the current one of slavery and aggression, because *I do not consent.* And there is a growing number of people like me.

Human society as we know it was built on slavery and aggression. Many people are tricked by the idea of moving to a different plantation with somewhat better conditions. They call it freedom and call themselves free, but they do not reject the foundation. In reality, they only think they are closer to being masters.

Every once in a while, few and far between, you'll find someone who rejects the foundation (of slavery and aggression) and is seeking a better basis for human society.
