|Rand Paul compared taxation to slavery — and betrayed the emptiness of his political philosophy|
Posted by William Dwyer on 7/10, 7:30pm
The title refers to an opinion piece from The Week magazine attacking Ron Paul's view that taxation is slavery. The author is clearly anti-free market, and attributes Paul's view to the one advanced by libertarian scholar Robert Nozick, who he says cites the "Lockean proviso" as a justification for original property, which the author then criticizes as fallacious. I'll have more to say about his arguments in the comments section.
