At what point do people revolt and rebel against injustice?
A lot of Libertarians including myself consider mandatory taxation as an immoral and unjust practice. It’s unlikely any of us will ever live to see a country without such a backwards policy. Of course there are tax friendly countries, but none completely devoid of taxation. But at what point does a government become so inept, incompetent, corrupt and immoral that citizens and people subjugated under such a government should revolt? This doesn’t have to be about taxation, but any other immoral or unjust supported policy of a State – with slavery being an obvious historical example. When the pains of a revolution is worth taking to no longer suffer from injustice?
An interesting point is that Rothbard – the OG Ancap – advocated that tax evasion, avoidance and obfuscation was completely legitimate and morally right. As the government lacked the moral justification to justify theft in the first place.
