Theft by any other name

See also

Taxation is theft.

It is a hard truth to swallow, and many people don't like to hear it. Every statist and authoritarian problem in Albuquerque, or around the globe, boils down to this simple truth somewhere: without taxation, it would be much harder for authoritarians to meddle in your life. In fact, when discussing The State it is an almost unavoidable observation, and that irritates some people.

So, I decided to try my hand at saying it a slightly different way for a change. I have written almost all of this down previously, so for most of you it will be nothing new, but perhaps more entertaining.
