I have decided that the stumbling block with this idea is that people aren't willing to cooperate and drop out of the system. For every good-hearted guy who believes it's his solemn duty to be robbed, there are ten others who would stab him in the back at a chance to steal his pickup truck's tailgate. There are a hundred who don't care, as long as their welfare checks keep rolling in. There are a thousand who would, and do, attack us verbally for floating the idea that laws do not map to morality.

The issue is these other people. In theory, as it stands, and all that equivocation, the masses currently have the power in democratically-represented republics to change these things, and they prove their approval every time they enter the voting booth. The tax collector is just a tool. It is Caesar who weilds it, and he is worshipped for delegating his almight powers to the voters. They are drunk on their own power over you and me.
