Most people in our part of the world take some kind of education after the obligatory school years. Then, we try to get a good job and when we finally and hopefully get such a job, we work hard for the rest of our lives. We buy a car, a house and lots of other things. To finance this, we have to ask some greedy bank to borrow us money, which makes us unable to stop working. So, we work. Our kids grow up, we get old, and we die. And that’s it. Most of us never get to travel to those places we wanted to see, we never get to learn the skills and crafts we really wanted to learn, we never get to do what we really wanted to do. We are, in fact, slaves to modern society and it’s hard to argue against this classic libertarian line of thought: Modern society takes care of you (healthcare, roads etc.) In return, you pay taxes. That’s the deal. But what if you don’t want to accept that deal? Then you’re facing some serious challenges. In fact, no matter what you think about that deal, you are still expected to pay taxes on everything you earn and buy, and governmental bodies will want to know where you are. Also, you will certainly be financially punished if you do not fulfill your duties as a taxpayer – you might even end up in prison and have your freedom taken away from you. You see, modern society is actually only nice to you as long as you play by its rules. If you don’t want to play, you will be financially punished. If you refuse to be financially punished, it will take your freedom. If you refuse to have your freedom taken away from you, you will actually, in the end, be subject to violence. You will be clubbed to submission or shot.
