A common scam involves taking a constant reality that always applies to everyone, then uniquely applying it to one set of people or one set of ideas.
Which of the following sounds more greedy to you?:
- Give me your money or I’ll have my employees put you in a jail cell and shoot you if you resist (taxation)
- I cannot get a penny out of your pocket unless you voluntarily give it to me in exchange for a product, service, or charitable gift
Most of us fear social disapproval, so being called greedy decreases our confidence in promoting the voluntarist ideas of free markets.
No longer should freedom advocates feel guilted by those who advocate government, the primary cause of theft (regulation and taxation) and mass murder (war) today and throughout history.
