"To think all taxation is theft requires thinking all taxation is unjust (I assume that all theft is unjust taking). But it’s not the case that all taxation is unjust. At least it’s not necessarily the case that all taxation is unjust. It would only be the case that all taxation is unjust if it were true that there could be no legitimate state. Only if full anarchy is the only legitimate option would there be no entity justified in collecting taxes." (05/20/11)
