The belief that a government has the moral and logical right to exist and rule over individuals who do not consent.

To paraphrase a statement often attributed to Winston Churchill though he's likely noy th eoriginator:

What we have now is the worst system except for all the others.

Let's here some comprehensive solutions from those constantly bashing what we have now.
No.

I nor anyone else wasn't put on this earth to solve the problems of any man or the problem of natural scarcity of resources.

You are jumping to the ends when all us anarchists are asking for is an honest evaluation of the means. And here is that evaluation:

Man is born free without any contractual obligation to another man or involuntary group (a State aka government). Consent can only be given when two or more parties, free from duress and with the cognitive ability to do so, agree to terms. He owns his body, mind, and the fruits of his labor (when his mind and body work in conjunction to produce something). It is therefore an inherent right of man to be free to do this as long as he does not purposely infringe on the right of another man to do likewise.

Your evaluation involves a magical ride thru a birthing canal where upon exiting a man agrees not to buy cigarettes until he is 18 or 21 or whatever.

If I'm wrong on your evaluation go ahead and correct me but I don't think so. I once had that evaluation myself before I jettisoned mysticism from my understanding of the world.

What say, C-D posters? What would you do with the money the IRS and your respective states (if applicable) stole from you?

Not sure. It is so fun giving to all of the various takers and leeches in our society. Why would you want do to anything else with YOUR money?
