• Conspiracy Theory: Government and Central Banking lies about Bitcoin - CEO of JPMorgan and Director of the Federal Reserve Jamie Dimon commits fraud

    Recently, CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co. Jamie Dimon went on CNBC calling Bitcoin a "fraud" where he would "fire in a second" any JPMorgan trader trading in Bitcoin because it is against their "rules." Even though his daughter bought into Bitcoin and JPMorgan Chase & Co. has been caught trading in Bitcoin. Dimon's sentiment has been echoed by many central banks, mainstream media, and those connected to them in the government. Evidence is showing that Dimon is only projecting and is, in turn, frauding everyone who looks to him for guidance (appeal to authority). Below I provide evidence in support of the conspiracy theory that the banking elites run the government and control your lives.


    What is a conspiracy theory?It is the point of view that a group is plotting something sinister using direct movements and actions to control what is being seen, like in the sense of theater.

    • conspiracy (n.) mid-14c., from Anglo-French conspiracie, Old French conspiracie "conspiracy, plot," from Latin conspirationem (nominative conspiratio) "agreement, union, unanimity," noun of action from conspirare (see conspire).
    • conspire (v.) late 14c., from Old French conspirer (14c.), from Latin conspirare "to agree, unite, plot," literally "to breathe together," from com "with, together" (see com-) + spirare "to breathe" (see spirit (n.)).
    • theory(n.) 1590s, "conception, mental scheme," from Late Latin theoria (Jerome), from Greek theoria "contemplation, speculation; a looking at, viewing; a sight, show, spectacle, things looked at," from theorein "to consider, speculate, look at," from theoros "spectator," from thea "a view" (see theater) + horan "to see," which is possibly from PIE root *wer- (3) "to perceive."


    The idea that a conspiracy theory is some negative crack pot title is grossly fraudulent. Since the times of the Magna Carta and the creation of the Declaration of Independence conspiracy theories were viewedin a positive manner. In 1967, the CIA coined"conspiracy theory" in a negative light as a way to discredit any theories outside of the "official" story. The CIA wrotea dispatch that provided high level instructions for the stopping and discrediting of such conspiracy theories.

    • "Countering and discrediting the claims of the conspiracy theorists"
    • "Employ propaganda assets to and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose."
    • "Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (II) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories." (this happened during 9/11 which discredited any factual evidence that came out)
    • "In private to media discussions not directed at any particular writer, or in attacking publications which may be yet forthcoming, the following arguments should be useful:"
      • "No significant new evidence has emerged"
      • "[Critics] tend to place more emphasis on the recollections of individual witnesses" (to discredit eye witnesses)
      • "Conspiracy on the large scale often suggested would be impossible to conceal in the United States"

    Root definition - Objective truth

    • fraud (n.) from Latin fraudem (nominative fraus) "a cheating, deceit," of persons "a cheater, deceiver." Not in Watkins; perhaps ultimately from PIE *dhreugh- "to deceive" (source also of Sanskrit dhruti- "deception; error"). Meaning "a fraudulent production, something intended to deceive" is from 1650s. The meaning "impostor, deceiver, pretender; humbug" is attested from 1850.
    • government(n.) late 14c., "act of governing or ruling;" 1550s, "system by which a thing is governed" (especially a state), from Old French governement "control, direction, administration" (Modern French gouvernement), from governer "to govern" (see govern).


    Google Definition - Subjective

    • fraud (n.) wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain.(notice they added criminal to the definition, which the government controls what is considered "criminal")
    • government(n.) the governing body of a nation, state, or community. The action or manner of controlling or regulating a nation, organization, or people.

    Who is Jamie Dimon? He is the current CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and a Board of Director for the Federal Reserve of New York, and is worth close to a billion dollars. Some might consider his position with the Federal Reserve as a conflict of interest since the Federal Reserve "regulates" all central banks, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. The hypocrisies being pushed by Dimon and those like him are endless.

    What is the Federal Reserve? It is not a government agency, yet they control our entire monetary supply and system.

    • "The Federal Reserve Banks are not a part of the federal government, but they exist because of an act of Congress. Their purpose is to serve the public. So is the Fed private or public? The answer is both. While the Board of Governors is an independent government agency, the Federal Reserve Banks are set up like private corporations. Member banks hold stock in the Federal Reserve Banks and earn dividends. Holding this stock does not carry with it the control and financial interest given to holders of common stock in for-profit organizations. The stock may not be sold or pledged as collateral for loans. Member banks also appoint six of the nine members of each Bank's board of directors."
    • In John L. Lewis, Plaintiff/appellant, V. United States of America, Defendant/appelle, 680 F.2d 1239 (9th Cir. 1982):
      • "Each Federal Reserve Bank is a separate corporation owned by commercial banks in its region. The stockholding commercial banks elect two thirds of each Bank's nine member board of directors. The remaining three directors are appointed by the Federal Reserve Board. The Federal Reserve Board regulates the Reserve Banks, but direct supervision and control of each Bank is exercised by its board of directors."
      • "It is evident from the legislative history of the Federal Reserve Act that Congress did not intend to give the federal government direction over the daily operation of the Reserve Banks: It is proposed that the Government shall retain sufficient power over the reserve banks to enable it to exercise a direct authority when necessary to do so, but that it shall in no way attempt to carry on through its own mechanism the routine operations and banking which require detailed knowledge of local and individual credit and which determine the funds of the community in any given instance. In other words, the reserve-bank plan retains to the Government power over the exercise of the broader banking functions, while it leaves to individuals and privately owned institutions the actual direction of routine."
      • "Additionally, Reserve Banks, as privately owned entities, receive no appropriated funds from Congress."
      • "The Reserve Banks are deemed to be federal instrumentalities for purposes of immunity from state taxation."(taxation is theft [my first and secondarticle on taxation] though so we should all enjoy this exception)


    The Federal Reserve was created on December 23, 1913 by the Federal Reserve Act after the Panic of 1907 when faith in trust companies failed, manly the Knickerbocker Trust Company. J. P. Morgan "saved" the day when he bailed out the industry using his own money, while convincing other bankers to do the same. The Panic of 1907 was influencedby the New York Times who pushed Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt (FUD) as speculation started to rise over a potential scandal when the then-president of the Knickerbocker Trust Company, Charles T. Barney, tried to corner the copper stock market, leading to a bank run when the scheme failed and the stock plummeted. Within a couple of weeks after the Panic of 1907 Charles T. Barney committed suicide by a gunshot wound to the stomach. It was reported that Charles T. Barney was despondent over the fact that JP Morgan refused to meet with him. Sounds more like a Clinton suicide moment.


    Frederick G. Eldridge, who chartered the Knickerbocker Trust Company in 1884, was a friend and classmate of J. P. Morgan. In 1896, J. P. Morgan provided Adolph Simon Ochs, who owned the Chattanooga Times, the financing to secure the purchase of the struggling New York Times which provided J. P. Morgan influence over the stories published in their papers. This push and influence caused the bank run leading to the industry (really only New York) needing to be "saved." Sounds like a broken window fallacy, no?


    The next year following the Panic of 1907, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., established and led the commission looking into the panic and proposed the solution of creating the Federal Reserve System. Rockefeller, Sr., was 7th cousins to J. P. Morgan and in 1901 J. P. Morgan offeredRockefeller, Sr. close to $90 million in a deal for ore among other business dealings.


    On top of this, shortly after J. P. Morgan "saved" the day a broker firm, Moore & Schley, who had secured huge loans against $6 million worth of Tennessee Coal, Iron, and Railroad Company (TCI) shares had the loans called by the banks to cover the banking runs that hit the market. This caused another issue since Moore & Schley were one of several broker firms in massive debt, Moore & Schley sitting at $25 million in debt. J. P. Morgan jumpedat this chance and browbeat the other bankers (rumored he locked them in a room) until they agreed to help put up the money to cover the firm's debt with the additional resource of government funds (taxes). The plan worked and J. P. Morgan was able to help bail out the broker firm and secure the acquisition of TCI. TCI was the direct southern competitor of U.S. Steel, which J. P. Morgan owned. Furthermore, TCI had the largest use of prison laborers (most were black) who were convicted of victimless or petty crimes and forced to pay off their fines though hard labor (this is still happening today). The number of convicts "employed" by U.S. Steel grew rapidly after it acquired TCI. J. P. Morgan is a humanitarian and philanthropist, right?


    John Godfrey Moore, co-owner of Moore & Schley and had controlling interest in Chase National Bank, gained fame in 1893 for successfully suing the U.S. government to stop the Income Tax Act from becoming reality, at least until 1913. Moore had close business dealings with Rockefeller Sr. and J. P. Morgan. Moore died suddenly in 1899 and was a member of the Jekyll Island Club, as was J. P. Morgan and Rockefeller, Sr.


    Now, to me this lays out a scheme by several individuals to corner a market while one who knew about the plan plotted against the rest securing considerable power and resources for the future. J. P. Morgan used his position to take out a financial market that directly stood against his bank, trust companies were increasing by 3.5 times the rate compared to other central banks. On top of this J. P. Morgan was able to secure and corner the steel market leading to a monopoly.  J. P. Morgan wasn't done though, using this panic and resulting crisis he continued to push for greater banking and financial regulations. These regulations came to a point by the end of 1913. J. P. Morgan would not live to see his goal realized.


    What a year 1913 was... sad year for freedom. This was the year that we were graced with income tax and the Federal Reserve. Banks began to provide trust departments to help manage funds and community foundations grew out of the regulations and restrictions placed upon trust companies by the government. Community foundations are a public versions of trust companies. Senator Nelson Aldrich was a main push behind the Federal Reserve Act and the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment which allowed for the start of income tax. Senator Aldrich's daughter, Abigail, married into the Rockefeller family in 1901. Senator Aldrich metwith Henry Davison, a senior partner at J. P. Morgan & Co., and others at Jekyll Island in November 1910 to discuss the creation of the Federal Reserve System, a centralized institution that would control the entire country's monetary supply.



    Did I mention that taxation is theft? It is. Promise. Even if these banks waste money and run their business into the ground they are viewed as "too big to fail" and those in the government will come to their aid using your hard earned money which is why the central banks needed the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008. $700 billion in stolen money went to these central bankers to help fix the mess they put the economy into and they threw parties to celebrate. Do you really feel that you are in control of your life? Do you really believe that the banking elite have your best interests at heart? Do you really think their mentality has changed any since time of J. P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller, Sr.? If so, what evidence do you see that things have changed? The government controls you, and the central banks and the private business that is the Federal Reserve controls the government.


    Like Mayer Amschel Bauer Rothschild, founder of the International Banking House of Rothschild, said:

    Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.



    Now, as with trust companies, a group of individuals, one being CEO Jamie Dimon, are starting to target cryptocurrencies in a sinister manner using direct movements and actions to control what is being seen. CEO Jamie Dimon has committed fraud in his push to attack cryptocurrencies. This is how it starts, using FUD before a "crisis" happens which will "require" the government to step in and regulate what you do with your property, your product of labor, your capital. You must keep yourself aware of these tactics that are geared to manipulate and control you. You have no control over the Federal Government. Everything is handed to you with the illusion of choice and freedom. So much of what happened over a 100 years ago still directly affects you daily. You are being stolen from constantly to fund foreign wars which didn't exist until the Federal Reserve and income tax. You are being manipulated by mainstream media who are controlled by the government and banking elite.



    Do you still think conspiracy theorists are crazy nut jobs? At what point is the evidence good enough for you to wake up to the slavery that exists today?

  • Taxation is theft, by definition



    Rhetoric (TLDR): Taxation is theft. A tax was originally an additional charge of handling property (like a service fee) but taxation quickly became obligatory contributions paid to governments and churches, obligatory through force. The difference between the two meanings is voluntary vs obligatory. Free people can voluntarily choose what to do with their product of labor, their property, their capital, while slaves are forced to hand it over to their masters.


    Did you know that Taxation Is Theft? It is, by definition. The very first article I ever wrote was a seven-pager on Why Taxation Is Theft. That article focuses more on examples on why Taxation Is Theft, lightly going over the definitions of the words, and options for moving away from taxation. It has been some time since I have addressed Taxation Is Theft and recently it has become a hot topic discussion, so I figured I should once again write about how Taxation Is Theft using the Trivium Method of Critical Thinking: Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric in order. If you are unsure what the Trivium is or the concept please go research it, it is a life changer that is no longer taught to society.


    Using only modern definitions of words is a subjective process due to everyone wanting to add their own twist. There is a problem with this process though, without objective truths, and the understanding of definitions, communication begins degrade quickly. When someone adds something to a definition of a word that you don’t agree with, how can you reach the same conclusion and rhetoric that they have without agreeing to the definition being used? This is why definitions need to be agreed upon before Logic can be debated.


    Example: How often do you hear liberal being used as a negative term? How often is liberal used negatively without the sense of irony with it?

    Root definition Liberal- directly from Latin liberalis "noble, gracious, munificent, generous," literally "of freedom, pertaining to or befitting a free person," from liber "free, unrestricted, unimpeded; unbridled, unchecked, licentious."

    Modern Google definitions –

    • “open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values.”
    • “favorable to or respectful of individual rights and freedoms.”
    • “(in a political context) favoring maximum individual liberty in political and social reform.”
    • “regarding many traditional beliefs as dispensable, invalidated by modern thought, or liable to change.”
    • “(of education) concerned mainly with broadening a person's general knowledge and experience, rather than with technical or professional training.”
    • “(especially of an interpretation of a law) broadly construed or understood; not strictly literal or exact.”
    • “given, used, or occurring in generous amounts.”
    • “(of a person) giving generously.”

    Do you agree with all of the modern definitions of liberal? Do you think the left are liberals? You cannot be liberal with others’ property.


    I tend to stay away from modern subjective definitions. These definitions usually have twists that alter the meaning of the word, so I focus on the root etymology of the words. This should always be your starting point when determining a definition to a word. Root definitions are objective truths, that is how the word started out and it sets the theme of the word for future use. Now, words can evolve to mean something completely different but words should never alter slightly meaning the opposite or something close to it. That is sophistry and is unacceptable, unless being used in an ironic way (see patriot).



    Sophists have convoluted communication between us all by taking away the meaning and understanding of many commonly used words and terminology, which allows them to twist language into a rhetoric that suits their needs and goals. They are not here to tell you the truth. Socrates, Plato and Aristotle were vehemently against sophists since they deliberately used “fallacious reasoning, intellectual charlatanism and moral unscrupulousness,” subjectivism, to influence those they taught for a high price. These are not good people. They lie for gain to cloud the truth so their rhetoric is “correct.”


    Google uses its own database to store definitions. Google is a publicly traded business heavily influenced by the governments around the world. It is a logical fallacy to go with Google definitions if it has not kept the same theme as the root definition. Take terrorismand patriotismfor example, most use the words incorrectly which clouds the meaning of the word making a truthful rhetoric harder to obtain. This confusion causes disagreements and strife between everyone while reducing the judgement and critical thinking ability of each individual and society as a whole. Confusion and a breakdown in the ability to think critically makes people and society easier to control, I mean govern.


    Example: Using modern definitions of the words Taxation Is Theft:



    Now as I have stated previously, subjective definitions can be the truth, but you should always start with a word’s root etymological definition to understand the theme of a word, its use in the context of the situation, and how it changed to be used today. Terms must be agreed upon to have any meaningful debate. The root definitions of words matter because they are not subjective but objective truths based in reality. Luckily, you can see from the example that the theme of taxation has not really changed even though most don’t understand that Taxation Is Theft. For everyone to understand that Taxation Is Theft we must agree that “against their will” means the same thing as “without permission” when looking at the modern definitions of the words.


    Now let’s go through the root definitions of Taxation Is Theft:

    • Taxation(n.) early 14c., "imposition of taxes," from Anglo-French taxacioun, Old French taxacion, from Latin taxationem (nominative taxatio) "a rating, valuing, appraisal," noun of action from past participle stem of taxare (see tax (v.)).
    • Tax(n.) early 14c., "obligatory contribution levied by a sovereign or government," from Anglo-French tax, Old French taxe, and directly from Medieval Latin taxa, from Latin taxare (see tax (v.)).
    • Tax(v.) c. 1300, "impose a tax on," from Old French taxer "impose a tax" (13c.) and directly from Latin taxare "evaluate, estimate, assess, handle," also "censure, charge," probably a frequentative form of tangere "to touch," from PIE root *tag- "to touch, handle."
    • Impose(v.) late 14c., "to lay (a crime, duty, obligation, etc.) to the account of," from Old French imposer "put, place; impute, charge, accuse" (c. 1300), from assimilated form of in- "into, in" (from PIE root *en "in") + poser "put, place".
    • Obligatory(adj.) c. 1400, from Old French obligatoire "creating an obligation, obligatory," and directly from Late Latin obligatorius "binding," from obligat-, past participle stem of obligare (see oblige).
    • Oblige(v.) c. 1300, "to bind by oath," from Old French obligier "engage one's faith, commit (oneself), pledge" (13c.), from Latin obligare "to bind, bind up, bandage," figuratively "put under obligation," from ob "to" (see ob-) + ligare "to bind," from PIE root *leig- "to bind.”
    • Contribution(n.) late 14c., from Old French contribution and directly from Latin contributionem (nominative contributio), noun of action from past participle stem of contribuere "to bring together, add, contribute," from com "with, together" (see com-) + tribuere "to allot, pay" (see tribute)
    • Compulsion(n.) early 15c., from Middle French compulsion, from Latin compulsionem (nominative compulsio) "a driving, urging," noun of action from past participle stem of compellere "compel" (see compel).
    • Enforcement(n.) late 15c., "constraint, compulsion," from Old French enforcement "strengthening, fortification; rape; compulsion, coercion;" from enforcier; see enforce + -ment.
    • Compel(v.) mid-14c., from Old French compellir, from Latin compellere "to drive together, drive to one place" (of cattle), "to force or compel" (of persons), from com "with, together" (see com-) + pellere "to drive" (from PIE root *pel- (5) "to thrust, strike, drive").
    • Tribute(n.) mid-14c., "stated sum of money or other valuable consideration paid by one ruler or country to another in acknowledgment of submission or as the price of peace or protection," from Anglo-French tribute, Old French tribut and directly from Latin tributum "tribute, a stated payment, a thing contributed or paid," noun use of neuter of tributus, past participle of tribuere "to pay, assign, grant," also "allot among the tribes or to a tribe," from tribus (see tribe).


    Rhetoric: A tax is considered a binding, forced, contribution that is compelled to be handed over to a government.


    • Theft(n.) mid-13c., from Old English þeofð (West Saxon þiefð) "theft," from Proto-Germanic *theubitho (source also of Old Frisian thiufthe, Old Norse þyfð), from *theubaz "thief" (see thief) + abstract formative suffix *-itha (cognate with Latin -itatem; see -th (2)).
    • Thief(n.) Old English þeof "thief, robber."
    • Robber(n.) late 12c., from Anglo-French robbere, Old French robeor, agent noun from rober (see rob).
    • Rob(v.) late 12c., from Old French rober "rob, steal, pillage, ransack, rape," from West Germanic *rauba "booty" (source also of Old High German roubon "to rob," roub "spoil, plunder."
    • Steal(v.) Old English stelan "to commit a theft, to take and carry off clandestinely and without right or leave" (class IV strong verb; past tense stæl, past participle stolen), from Proto-Germanic *stelan (source also of Old Saxon stelan, Old Norse, Old Frisian stela "to steal, to rob one of," Dutch stelen, Old High German stelan, German stehlen, Gothic stilan "to steal"), from PIE *stel-, possibly a variant of *ster- (3) "to rob, steal."
    • Pillage(n.) late 14c., "act of plundering" (especially in war), from Old French pilage (14c.) "plunder," from pillier "to plunder, loot, ill-treat."
    • Plunder(n.) "goods taken by force; act of plundering," 1640s, from plunder (v.).
    • Force(n.) c. 1300, "physical strength," from Old French force "force, strength; courage, fortitude; violence, power, compulsion" (12c.).


    Rhetoric: Theft is the act of plundering, taking goods and property by force. If we used tax in its very root sense a tax should be voluntary since it was a service fee for handling something. You would have the option to choose someone or something else to handle your business. However, since taxation has become compulsorily and everyone is forced to contribute regardless if they use a service or not it is theft. Taxation is theft, by definition.


    We as a society have forgotten how to think critically but the cards have been stacked against us since birth. This is only an excuse though because eventually we all need to wake up to the lies and falsehoods that are being forced upon us daily. We need to understand the disadvantage we have been given by those ruling over us. The Trivium Method of Critical Thinking is a way to gain back a level playing field. The Trivium allows us to process information so we can come to the best and most accurate solution with the information available. Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric (in that order) are the foundationof this process.


    Grammar must be factual and truthful, subjective opinions are not facts. Subjective words are not facts unless both parties agree to the definitions. Without proper Grammar basic communication breaks down and sets you up for failure. This failure manifests in our ability to use Logic leading to us providing rhetoric that is wrong.


    P.S. Taxation Is Theft


  • Why taxation is theft

     Taxation is theft

    Taxation is theft. It is. All the taxes!

    Many people will vote to increase taxation so they are voluntarily giving money to the state, however they are violating the rights of those who do not want to voluntarily give money to the state for whatever issue is deemed important that year. This is why. Taxation is theft.


    There are many different types of taxation: Income tax, state and local taxes, payroll tax, unemployment tax, foreign tax, value-added tax, property tax (and eminent domain), real estate tax, sales tax, gas tax, excise taxes, user fees, sin taxes, capital gains tax, corporate tax, luxury taxes…… The government gets you coming, going, on the toilet, sleeping, and even when you die – inheritance and estate taxes. Remember each tax has laws and regulations with lots of exceptions and loopholes, well if you were smart enough to pay off politicians with lobbyists. If a law has a loophole then it is not efficient nor effective, so the law must be removed or fixed.


     Property tax and eminent domain:


    If you don’t pay your property taxes the government will show up and takeyour house and land away from you, which is stealing. No matter how many generations that your family has lived and maintained the property, if you do not pay those property taxes you will lose that property. How is that fair or even morally right? How is eminent domain morally acceptable by anyone? Theft of property which then the government uses money that is stolen from others, taxation, to fund corporations (cronyism capitalism vs capitalism) to renovate an area. The government causes problems not fixes them. Trump thinks eminent domain is “wonderful”. Do you agree with Trump?


    When saying these magical words “taxation is theft” to those on the left or right it is like you are speaking in tongues claiming to be the voice of a god. The cognitive dissonance is strong in many who are not ready to let go of their statism. Many points that have been brought up supporting taxation are logical fallacies, like red herrings, conditional fallacies, questionable fallacies, or generalizations.


    Tax, is a compulsory contribution to state and federal revenues. Compulsoryis force. Contributionis a payment. So a tax is a forced payment for services you may or may not use. Rarely is something that is forced given willingly (Stockholm syndrome). Theft, is the taking of another person’s property without that person’s permission or consent with the intent to deprive the rightful owner of it. Taxation is theft.



    Taxation is theft 


    What is the difference if a criminal mob forces you to pay for a service or a government? One is voted on by the majority… Slaverywas legal at one point because the majority agreed it was socially acceptable and determined that the minorities’ quality of life was sufficient as a slave…


    Someone’s quality of life is determined by them and only them unless their mental capacity (age, illness, disability, etc.) does not allow them to do so, with exceptions.  In these situations, another individual is granted a right to make those decisions for them.  Examples include guardianship, conservatorship, power of attorney, and even parenthood.


    Is it your right to tell a cancer patient that they cannot take cannabis because you think it could diminish their quality of life? No, that is not your choice, as it in no way affects you.  You no more have the right to tell them they are required to take cannabis because it could save their life.  You do not have a right to determine how somebody chooses to live or die.


    Many people do vote those rights away or something such as cannabis would be legal for medicinal purposes in all states. “How is this possible?” you may be asking yourself. The government’s monopoly on force is how. Police and enforcement are paid through tax revenue.  Tax revenue that you were voluntoldhad to be given from each paycheck, aka theft not voluntary. Being forcedinto a service or using a service is slavery.


     Example:(how services and taxation are being misrepresented)

    You use the services that are paid for by taxes so being required to pay for something isn’t the same as being stolen from.


    That is a logical fallacy. Being required to pay for something, a service, which was provided isn’t the same as being taxed.


    Now, how is taxing someone providing a service to that person? Do you use all of the services that are paid for by taxes? How is fundingNATO, other countries, or unconstitutional wars providing a service to everyone? You can’t pick and choose what is acceptable to be taxed based on your standards of living or moral opinions. You are either for taxation or against it, or you are hypocriticalin your line of thinking.


    Who deems what services you must pay for or use as a necessity, Republican or Democrat supporters? People are so blindedby the word Democrat or Republican that they stop thinking. Just imagine Trump or Sanders supporters controlling your life… that is exactly who I want to make decisions over my life (sarcasm)…… They all want more democracy and greater federal government power which means less freedom.


    Democracy is where the majority makes slaves out of the minority. Do you think we need more of that?


    Let’s look at the differences between a service and a tax.


     Situation: (I was given this as an example as to why we need taxes)

    "You are driving down the road and you have a motor vehicle accident. You wake up in the hospital days later, injured but alive. The hospital then bills you for the services rendered."


    This service, a potential lifesaving service, was provided to you therefore you would then be required to pay for that service. That is not a tax but a debt incurred which if not paid goes to collection agencies and negatively affects your credit scores. Still with me? Good.



     Healthcare services


    Hospital bills tend to be covered by health insurance, which is why there are insurance packages available. Because of government regulations insurance prices, with healthcare costs, have skyrocketed. Now there is a compulsory healthcare insurance provided by the federal government in which you are finedif you don’t pay for it. How is that providing a good service when some peopledon’t want it? That isn’t handing someone a hospital bill but stealing their money and providing a horrible service that may or may not get used. I know several people that either took the fine, because it was cheaper, or signed up for the service only to have to pay double to what was promised. Again taxes, which are stolen because they are compulsory, are used to pay for services many people don’t want or won’t be using. Taxation is theft.



     Fire department and EMT services


    Fire departments and EMTs only show up when you call them to provide a service. Property and other taxes go to pay for these services. What about all the other taxes that are collected throughout your day? Fire departments could be paid by home or renters insurance, which most have, after a service has been provided. How did they operate before the modern age? They are called enough that they could run like any other non-profit and make money from the services they provide and through community donations. Voluntary exchange is not stealing. Voluntaryis an action from one’s own free will – not force.


    Firefighters and EMTs costs continue to risecausing issues for all states. Some areas, to combat the funding issue, have started to create annual subscriptions for the services. This has led to firefighters watching a home burn to the grounddue to the homeowner not paying the subscription fee. The homeowner knew the risks and chose not to pay for a service, the fault is on him. This is the same idea as having home, renters, or vehicle insurance. You pay a fee and you are provided a service, this should be voluntary not forced – nor be tied to property taxes. Taxation is theft.



     Police services


    Out of the several dozen times I have interacted with police throughout my life maybe three or four times I had called to be provided a service, the rest of the time I was provided fines and tickets for services I never received – if you know which services those fines and tickets went to please let me know – yes I know this is anecdotal but there are countless examples of police corruption and harassment of innocent civilians.

    If police are never called to provide a service, and they stop and make an individual a criminal out of a victimless crime, then the police are harassinginnocent people, those they are sworn to protect and serve. How is this providing an acceptable service? Imagine the police’s Yelp rating if it was running in a free market? Do you really trust policewhen they show up at a school or during an emergency?


    Speeding tickets are another form of “revenue” generation, aka taxation. How is stealing money from you when there is no victim providing a good service to tax payers? Have you ever had to fight a ticket you knew was wrong only to have the judge side with you yet you still walk out of that courtroom paying those “processing fees” or “courtroom costs”? Add that to the amount of time you likely took away from your job and it may not even make monetary sense for you to fight for what you know is right. You may just pay the fine, cut your losses, and move on. You were essentially bullied out of your money by somebody with a badge and a gun on their hip. Who gave them that power? It’s no different than some thug on the street forcing you to pay because you walked on their side of the street a little fast.


    Fining people for “crimes” when there is no victim is morally wrong. That would be called theft. If you disagree than any time you go even few miles over the speed limit you should turn yourself in and voluntarily pay your fine. Otherwise your line of thinking is hypocritical. Police should not harass, injure or murderinnocent people, no matter their color or creed – all are targeted equally.


    Police should provide a service only when necessary or when called upon. Turning mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters into criminals when you simply do not agree with their way of life is wrong. Your “taxes” (aka stolen money) helps to fund these “services”. Is it really worth it?  When the government has a monopoly on force, how can you protect your rights? How is that freedom?


    Look up Eric Garner. “I can’t breathe” would be the slogan that was chanted during protests. He was essentially killed for not paying taxes. His “crime” was selling cigarettes without tax stamps. Tax evasion. He was killed because he didn’t pay taxes. Who did the killing? Police. Was that the service he was paying taxes for?


    How about having your house raidedby U.S. Marshals because of an unpaid student loan decades old? Well that happened to Paul Aker. U.S. Marshals showed up to his house fully armed to arrest him for an unpaid loan… If they had done a no knock raid, which happens a lot and has gotten innocent people injured and killed – by police, great service – Aker could have ended up dead because a debt to the federal government. Now what would you call if it if a loan shark had injured or killed someone to collect a debt? Assault or murder, right? What is the difference? Because they belong to the government it is a “non” violation of a right? The word “government” should not be enough to make immoral actions moral especially when those actions violate the rights of others.


    The cost to taxpayers for police misconduct is staggeringas is the costs for police in general. Taxation is theft.


    Note: The militarization of the police force started with the War on Drugs.


    Taxes in the basket



     Prison services (thanks War on Drugs!)


    The War on Drugs has made our prison systems horrible. Since the War on Drugs started in the early 1970’s the incarceration rate has exploded. This influx of individuals in to an already corrupt systemhas led to the creation of privatized prisons. The idea that privatized prisonswould be cost effective have not come true. Now there is a system that pays for incarceration of individuals, to for-profit corporations, in which innocent people are having their rights violated. Thanks government!


    Currently, the U.S. spends $51 billion annually on the failedWar on Drugs and $39 billion on the prison system, let’s say $20 billion is directly caused by the War on Drugs – I’d wager it is higher though – that means $71 billion of tax payer money is wasted each year. Imagine if that money wasn’t stolen from everyone and there was more money being spent in the economy. When you are forced into a shitty cable service is it acceptable to you? Taxation is theft.


    Note: Our current Vice President, Joe Biden, was one of the main forces behind the implementation of the War on Drugs.



     Muh road services


    This gem of a topic is always brought up as a gotcha question to anyone who disagrees with any form of taxation. “But what about the roads?”… Yes, what about those pesky roads. The majority of the time this questions is brought up by those who have not researched the situation, nor do they have any clue how to build a road. How were roads built before the heavy handed theft of our money? Voluntarily?


    A videoby the Corbett Report explains in detail how privatization of roads work and why we don’t need to tax everyone to pay for the roads that they do not use. Why is it your responsibility to pay for a road in a different state? Machineshelp build roads and sidewalks now making building roads easier. Free-market roads is a concept that works and reduces the government’s use of eminent domain. The real question is who would build the roads if not the government? Well, it would be you and the community around you. Everyone has the ability to build a road. The government is not a person, it is a social construct created by statism, and they do not build roads. The roads “built” by the government are actually contracted out to construction companies using stolen money. Where is the voluntary exchange for this service?


    “But what about the interstate highways?” Yes, there is a solution for that as well. Low cost tolls. If you use the highway, it is a service provided to you since you did not create it yourself, and it is acceptable to pay a tolling fee for the services rendered and the maintenance of said services. How well have those services benefited the citizens of this country? How many complain about the highways being poorly planned and the inefficiency of their development? Road management cannot function centrally as seen by the failed federal highway program.


    The federal highway program spends billionseach year yet every year you hear at the federal level and state level that tax revenue has been rerouted to non-road projects. Do you agree with being forced to pay for roads even though that isn’t always the case? Taxation is theft.



     Education services (K-12)


    We are failing our children. We have let state run education dictate the future of our children’s lives. We have lost the understanding of the Triviumand Quadriviumand how they help us logically work through problems. Teachers are resigning over the poor state of our education system. Students are not being prepared properly for college or life after their state run education has been completed.


    The problem is not that people are uneducated, the problem is that they are educated enough to believe what they have been taught and not enough to question what they have been taught.


    Historically the education system was left up to the states and only when needed did the states seek help from the federal government. The federal mandated program of No Child Left Behind failedwhich has ruined the education system even faster than it had been going. Now 14 years later the product of that education system has hit voting age.


    This is the exact time we need to take a step back, realize that we are on the precipice of the downfall of our economy, and logically and reasonably look at everything. One wrong move and we are screwed.


    The Education Department supports roughly 56 million students and forced all states to conform to their policies for the past 14 years. Recently states have been given their rights backto the standards set in 1965 by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). The involvement of the federal government, ESEA, and the No Child Left Behind has significantly increased the cost of education, with little show for it. Funding for education is provided by the local, state, and federal government. Is it fair that you are taxed multiple waysto pay for education services you or your children may or may not use? Do you agree when funding is reroutedto other programs?


    With outrageous costs for education there are several options to lessen the cost. Focus more on localized education and stop with centralized. With the advancement of the Internet open-source peer-reviewed and FREE textbooks are available. With this change alone teachers could get a pay increase and school systems could still hire additional teachers. Taxation is theft.



     High education services


    Due to government involvementand federal loans college students are leaving college with huge amounts of debt thanks to the subsidies. Taxpayers are footing the bill for this system, hundreds of billions wasted a year, with no real solution to the problem. The government is the problem and lessening their control is the solution. Remember Federal Marshals will come after you if you do not pay your debt.


    Let’s pretend for a minute that taxation is theft and we are slaves to the government. Now, how does it feel when you realize they are also the ones in control of our education? Remember during slavery the masters controlled the slaves’ education to keep them ignorant of freedom and rights. Giving you a pretty window to look out of doesn’t make you free.

    Hopefully by now you have seen a pattern that government run programs are not run efficiently nor effectively. Taxation is theft.



     Bernie Sanders (Trump would be as horrible but in a different way) – remember the road to hell is paved with good intentions (good intentions is loosely defined here).


    Sanders will use this corrupt and unjust system and try to force socialist ideologies through it. To do this he will need to increase taxes, which will bring more theft of the product of your labor. The poor and middle class will be affected more than the “1%”. Never EVER has forced socialism worked out. It always fails. Forced socialism, because voluntary is acceptable, does not work and leads to communism, fascism, or totalitarianism.


    Sanders does not understand economics, or the free market, but neither do his supporters (Trump supports are the same). Venezuela is in ruinsbecause of socialist policies. Sanders threw his support behind Cuba’s Fidel Castro, who was a communist, same thing as forced socialism. People don’t flee on make shift boats to leave something that is great. They do that to get to something great, which was a somewhat free market and capitalism, but those days are waning because people are drinking that bandwagon kool-aid.





    When you are forced into choosing a service and then forced into paying taxes for that service with no choice in the matter; that is slavery.


    Taxation is theft

    Everything comes down to basic rights. You have the right to the product of your labor. No one else does unless it was voluntarily agreed upon within a contract before services were rendered. Do you have the right to steal from someone? No. Do you have the right to grant someone else the right to steal? No. How is voting to have the government steal from others who do not want to be stolen from not theft?


    There is a serious problem facing our society. Words and their definitions have been lost on the majority of the populace thanks to government controlled education and media. Imagine how good this economy would be if you got the corrupt government out of it and focused on the free market, and voluntary exchange, and voluntaryism. Voluntary socialism is the utopia socialists wish for and strive for, they miss the voluntary part though, which is why it always fails. Force is wrong.


    Anarchism would provide the ability for voluntary socialism. Anarchism is the belief in the abolition of all government and to organize society based on a voluntary, cooperative basis without recourse to force or compulsion as long as the rights of others are not violated. That is what it is means to be free. Freedom from force. Sanders wants slavery not freedom, and to achieve this slavery taxes will be raised across the board leading to more “criminals” being thrown in jail or murdered for victimless crimes.




    P.S. Taxation is theft
