As most are well aware, today is April 15th, the final day to file your extortion return, or the State will threaten to toss you in a rape cage for not paying proper tribute. All taxation is theft and today’s “holiday” brings to mind one of my favorite quotes by Lysander Spooner, from his book, No Treason: The Constitution of No Authority. If you haven’t read it yet, I definitely recommend you do. The audiobook and PDF are available here.

“The fact is that the government, like a highwayman, says to a man: Your money, or your life…The government does not, indeed, waylay a man in a lonely place, spring upon him from the road side and, holding a pistol to his head, proceed to rifle his pockets. But the robbery is none the less a robbery on that account; and it is far more dastardly and shameful. The highwayman takes solely upon himself the responsibility, danger, and crime of his own act. He does not pretend that he has any rightful claim to your money, or that he intends to use it for your own benefit. He does not pretend to be anything but a robber…Furthermore, having taken your money, he leaves you as you wish him to do. He does not persist in following you on the road, against your will; assuming to be your rightful ‘sovereign,’ on account of the ‘protection’ he affords you.”
