Michael, read Herbert Spencer, Social Statics ...Chapter XIX..."The Right to Ignore the State". Would it not be a tremendous contribution to everyone to begin to speak to the jurisdiction the federal government wields over all citizens by our voluntary acceptance of any of the "programs" they offer.
unknown: you must descend from the Spencer line, i.e. Herbert Spencer, Social Statics , wherein he speaks to "The Right to Ignore the State"...Chapter XIX. It is a good read and almost parallels your thought above. One must be careful, however, to seek not the protection the State may offer (your next to the last sentence) lest the courts determine from the "totality of circumstances" that you appear to be under their jurisdiction for your actions.
unknown: this is precisely the complaint presented to King John in 1215...you make the rules, and then your courts determine the validity of such rules (laws)...what has happened is we have sat upon our haunches and delivered our freedoms back to the king. However, let us not stop there, look back and see when "majority rules" became the "law of the land". If this is so, two of us could be traveling down a road, come upon another and determine we should rob him...2 - 1...majority rules.
