Confusing Coercion With Consent

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Being Libertarian,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“Chuck Wendig (@ChuckWendig): I think the success of GoFundMe campaigns for medical expenses shows that we could probably do it on a national level, creating a collective fund for everyone using something called ‘taxes,’ and we can use it to pay for a thing I’ve invented called ‘universal health care.’
It’s called GoFundMe, not GoFundMeOrElse”

My Commentary: GoFundMe is voluntary and consensual. Taxation Is Theft. Grow a soul, oppressor. Your coercion is showing.

Institutionalizing the Criminalization of the Innocent

Christopher Long: That moment when you campaign for weeks for the govenment to infringe upon other people’s rights to make you feel safe – and they infringe upon your rights instead.”

My Commentary: Criminalizing the innocent remains the State’s number one go-to “solution” for all of life’s complex problems. The Accuser is working overtime!
