If taxes are considered theft because there is a threat of violence, why are landlords praised then?
I’d like to start of by saying I’m a Landlord myself. We libertarians believe that even though taxes might benefit us, it was not a consensual agreement since there is a threat of jail time behind it. Couldn’t you argue that landlords are not providing a consensual agreement because the threat of not signing a lease with the Landlord is homelessness? Even though the landlord is providing us with a service, housing, there is simply no other option. (If you want to rent)
