The following debate originally took place here, upon the Facebook wall of Ms. Lauryn Hill, after I posted a captioned photo being shared by the page, “Strictly Voluntary,” along with a comment of my own…
Rayn: Check it out, Ms. Lauryn Hill! Voluntaryists understand your position, all too well! Taxation is Theft!
Ms.Hill in part of her statement to the tax judge: “I had an economic system imposed on me.”
Ms.Hill was caught in the trap that Lysander Spooner wrote of over a century ago:
“And yet we have what purports, or professes, or is claimed, to be a contract—the Constitution—made eighty years ago, by men who are now all dead, and who never had any power to bind us, but which (it is claimed) has nevertheless bound three generations of men, consisting of many millions, and which (it is claimed) will be binding upon all the millions that are to come; but which nobody ever signed, sealed, delivered, witnessed, or acknowledged; and which few persons, compared with the whole number that are claimed to be bound by it, have ever read, or even seen, or ever will read, or see.” ― Lysander Spooner, No Treason: The Constitution Of No Authority
No Treason: The Constitution of No Authority | by Lysander Spooner:
Murray N. Rothbard considered this essay by Lysander Spooner (1867) “The greatest case for anarchist political philosophy ever written.”

Jahgreen R.: is it like she wants to be free to express her childhood’s homeworks mistakes now that she is an adult??? I today realize what that word means which she spoke in a poem in London way back in 2005: “What an abracaration!!!” -aryist[s], what about -ist[s]!!! I am a voluntarist if I’m not gonna be a volunteer, but not for grammar mistakes, what’s fucked up with you??!!! Who were you sent by? You amp up not being with you!! Now you’re gonna complain why y’all’re not loving me? but, come on, you………………..repulse
Rayn: My apologies, but I’ve read your comment multiple times, and simply I can’t make out what you’re trying to say within it… Can you please clarify?
Jahgreen R.: A flabbiness spray for Lauren to put in a bubble. She needs to understand, anyone who earns more than average must pay taxes, that’s also accepting the luck could have been someone else’s to put in light out of the many poors who have talent in any other field but will never be able to access. Why wouldn’t the poor be able to receive from the wealthiest in partnerships funds, professional welfare like she ain’t ready to do so? Trust it or not, only the wind has got the answer to this question ; she’ll just have to follow the majority.
Rayn: Nope… Individuals cannot simply relegate rights which they don’t have, themselves, to others, no matter how much they imagine that such activity would somehow eliminate the lack of morality inherent to the unjust acts they seek to commit, by proxy – nor will it relinquish them of personal responsibility for the acts now being committed in their name. Since you and I have no right to take money from others without their consent, neither does the State! It wouldn’t matter if we tossed out the claim that it was for the “greater good,” or if we used some of the stolen money to buy our victim a service he also didn’t consent to, as we pocketed some for ourselves as payment for arranging said service. It would be a criminal act, regardless. It’s probably disappointing to hear this, if you’re a member of the Statist cult, but… yeah… true morality is universal, like that.
Taxation is Theft, and Taxation is Extortion. To those who advocate such theft under the guise of “helping the poor” with stolen funds, I say, “Check Your Statist Privilege,” my friend! (Click Here to Continue Reading This Post)
