Why should you pay without your consent?
Why you ask? Is the question rhetorical? Surely you know the answer already.
The answer, of course, is because your are *forced* to.
Your consent is not required for the inifinite force of government to tax (steal) your wealth and spend it arbitrarily as it sees fit.
What right does the mafia have to demand 'protection' money?
What right does a pirate have in demanding 'safe passage'?
None other than the 'right' of force, or course. Your input is inconsequential in the face of the supporters of institutionalized, aggressive
violence. Have your little debate, type some angry words on the net, vote for someone who promises less violence...aaaaaand squat. You pay. You pay
forever increasing amounts for ever declining services. Your currency is continually debased. Your stolen money is spent in increasing amounts on
increasingly evil things. Your standard of living collapses, and still you pay more. Your freedom is stolen from you while you foot the bill for it.
You reap what you sew.
Voted for that politician to point the violence of the state at someone else? Consequences. Went along with the crowd in supporting expanded state
power? Consequences. Hoped against reason you would be delivered from this long slide into hell by checking a little box in some anonymous booth
only to have your irrelevant say - so discounted by vote fraud, be it mechanical or otherwise? CONSEQUENCES. Every time you give your consent to a
system predicated on the GUN you sew the seeds of your own demise, as violence is always a negative sum game, and everytime we defer our own consent
to the rule of the monopoly of violence, we add to the negative stream of human development that must always devolve into a whirlpool of ever
increasing force and turmoil.
Now you might understand that you never had a choice all along, but only the illusion of choice sustained by endless lies. Youre a *slave* dammit,
you never had a choice. You *must* pay your extortion fees or you will be dragged off to the rape rooms. You have no choice.
The only choice you have is your consent. After all, the system rests on consent. You may not be able to decide how your money is spent, but you can
sure be vocal in your disagreement in its theft. If we withdraw our consent, the system crumbles. Perhaps we can build something less evil on the
