Who determines these "privileges"?
Who determines who gets to be a member and who does not?
How come "organized society" cannot exist without this construct of government?
What happens if I don't want to be apart of this "organized society" but would rather make a different organized society?

This is just a sound byte to make people feel good about having their time(life) taken from them in the form of taxes. A brilliant form of emotion policing that squashes questioning the system.

But no matter how you word it...it always comes down to theft. One taking from another at the threat of violence or death.
It is not theft. Its a give and take. I guarantee the taxes that are "taken" from you benefit you. Whether it is fixing your roads or educating future children.

With that said. We can argue about "how" these taxes are put to place in order to benefit us.

But it is not 'theft'

I work. I use the roads to my job. I eat food that is subsidized I use schools that are paid with by my taxes, etc etc.

If you don't want to pay taxes(waste your time). Then don't get a modern job. (though I supposed property tax will getcha).

We as a species require organization. We have for hundreds, thousands of years. We have always had a system in place. We all had roles.

It has evolved from that.


You still have not answered my question about what kind of society you think we will evolve into. I'm really interested how you think we will go beyond governments/organized society.
