>>1062938 Well it would be, but the reality is that it doesn't exist as property is an imaginary concept. What belongs to you ceases to be such the second someone contests that notion and/or succeeds in taking it.
>>1062968 I'd kill you if you tried, hence barring both your attempt at contest and any chance of you succeeding, fully legally of course. Unless of course you were a powerful enough individual to get the government to do it for you.
>>1063030 >I didnt agree to anything by being born in a country We had to choose between killing you for trespassing or forcing you into the contract. I hope you'll thank us for being merciful. If you want to blame anyone for your situation you should really blame your parents for letting to be born and raised in such a wretched society. They could have built an igloo on the North Pole or something instead.
>>1063036 >choose between killing you for trespassing or forcing you into the contract Just because that's how it is doesn't mean that it's right and you are never forced to accept the concept, saying that you were forced to accept it implies that you had a choice to begin with which isn't true from the moment you're born it's imposed on you without your consent.
>>1062988 That's democracy. A government is the relationship between its people. Democracy maximises the benefit of the relationship for the most people. Would you rather have a monarchy or a plutocracy?

Democracy has been historically proven to be the least effective system out there.
The vast majority of people are idiots, therefore having them dictate what the country should or should not look like is irresponsible.
Some examples - >Vast majority of people do not have a reasonable retirement plan >Vast majority of people make min wage making coffees, burgers or sandwiches >Vast majority ARE OVERWEIGHT(60% overweight in the US, about half are clinically obese) >Vast majority don't understand basic politics or economics, they vote and make decisions based on arbitrary reasons
>>1062938 It is our duty as US citizens to pay as little in tax as possible, and to, if we can get away with it, rip off the government on our tax returns and filings. The government is nothing but a corrupt machine and anyone willingly paying into it is clearly retarded and not a good business man nor a good America.
>>1063797 The state isn't a moral agent that can claim to own land, that's what makes its rule somewhat illegitimate. An entity cant argue an ownership claim only individuals can.
> community > nature
Get out of it son, value is subjective among individuals which the community is made of. An abstract "community" can't give land value but rather individuals agree on value when they interact with eachother voluntarily.
>>1063997 As somebody who prepped taxes for profit, this is absolutely true. There are so many adjustments, deductions, exemptions and credits that if you just fill out a 1040-EZ, you're probably giving up a lot of money that is rightfully yours. After all, the higher courts encourage active tax avoidance. In a lot of ways (such as with the retirement saver's credit), they use our desire to avoid taxes to get us to do something we might not otherwise do.
For all you hating on paying taxes alltogether, imagine what SF would be like without the Golden Gate Bridge. Or what our national parks would look like without proper funding (such as how that one Grand Canyon lookout 10 miles outside of Flagstaff would look if the trash from tens of thousands of daily visitors wasn't regularly cleaned). Or, hell, it's nice to know that somebody will be available to respond if I break my arm or my mom gets her purse stolen by a tweaker. Or national disasters. Or the legal system that needs to be funded to protect our businesses and intellectual property so that we can even have a society. Or how even the grocery store clerks and MickyD's employees are by in large high school educated (or equivelent).
When it comes down to it, our social contract may not be perfect but it's a lot better than what the other guy suggested about living in igloos in Alaska.
