The Philosophy of Liberty - Self Ownership

This flash animation is something I can agree with.

It basically outlines liberty, including the consequences of asking others to do bad things on one's behalf.

Such profound statements as contained in the animation should be the yardstick by which government rules. Any new proposal, action, rule or measure should be offered up to this framework to see if it contradicts anything within.

Makes taxation beyond defensive military, police, courts, prisons, border/customs etc pretty difficult to justify. No bad thing.

That's been floating around for ages, I'm surprised you haven't seen it before.
