The roles of government, ep. 1

One of the (very few) acceptable roles of government is, to defend property rights. These include:

  • The defense against bodily harm, caused by an attacker (because you and you alone own your body)
  • The defense of house and hearth from a foreign invading country
  • The defense of material posessions (like your TV or your bank balance) from robbers/thieves.

The latter makes government an impossibility, because: government funds itself via theft: extracted (involuntarily paid) taxes.

So government is inherently incapable of fulfilling it’s roles, due to how it funds itself.
