A continuation! Here is the second half of Kurt’s epic story of how he started asking the big questions about government. Where does the government’s authority come from? Is it possible to have a healthy economy without a government? Is taxation moral? We also discuss the most famous libertarian in Australian politics, David Leyonhjelm; whether Prime Minister Tony Abbott is an alien; and the fact that every Mexican seems to understand when we say “taxation is theft”.
Part one of a two part epic. Kurt explains his philosophical and political development, in the steps he took and the questions he had to ask to become a voluntaryist/libertarian anarchist. Why does government get to decide what you do with your body? What lawful right do police have to detain you when you’ve injured no-one? Can an involuntary government be a moral institution?
Bitnation is the platform freeing the masses, providing access to services traditionally performed by government. The decentralised system will allow people to obtain passports, register marriages, property and businesses. Now government can be voluntary, and the blockchain does all the work of the bureaucrats.
