This is the foundation of Stefan Molyneux's "against me" argument.respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours
Basically it rejects the idea of the state and the use of force to collect taxes. If you respect my view, then you will respect that I do not pay any taxes at all and you don't have to put a gun to my head and steal my money in order to fund even more violence coming from the state.
Not in response to any particular comments but to a couple broad feelings I'm seeing. If you're a US citizen, you are subject to US laws. Just to throw that out there. All of them. Including being subject to tax, etc.
14th Amendment.All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.

Rojo, when you say you "don't like classes or philanthropy," can I assume you envision a world where nobody is any richer or poorer than anybody else, we all live under the exact same standards and conditions? Why don't you like philanthropy, which I assume to mean charitable donations from individuals?
In other words, the government went back to war against the revolutionaries to reconquer them.
Now, 150 or so years later, the states will secede again.
This crisis that is unfolding in Europe is just the beginning, wait until it spreads to the US, which it will.
The age of austerity is looming large.
The European Union will break apart, and the United States will break apart.
That is how serious things are.
May you live in interesting times.
In this world, charity is what often keeps people alive. But in an ideal one we wouldn't need it. It puts people on an unequal footing.Why don't you like philanthropy, which I assume to mean charitable donations from individuals?
