On this episode of Ask Cahlen I’ll be answering the question, “Is Taxation Theft?”
In order to answer this question, we must define both theft and taxation, but before we can do that we must define property.
What an individual can own is a debatable topic, but the principle of ownership itself is not. I own my body, therefore I have the right to choose what I do with it, as long as it does not harm another being. I also own my time, which means I own the fruits of how I choose to spend my time. To say otherwise is to claim slavery is legitimate.
Anarchy is a term which in the modern era is almost always used incorrectly. Most believe it to mean chaos or the lack of order, but in truth it simply means without masters or rulers. In other words, Anarchy means the absence of slavery (i.e. a state of freedom).
In this episode of Speak Freely TV we are joined by The Pholosopher a proponent and educator of many topics relating to human freedom. Pho and Cahlen discuss the fundamentals of Anarchy, the belief that government is illegitimate and immoral due to its power being wholly derived through the use of violence.
