Ayn Rand is highly over-rated.

And before we go any further I'd like to remind everyone that possible inconvenience is a poor reason to enslave another human being.

Just saying.
It's laziness pure and simple. Much easier to have the government think about all those pesky details, telling you what you need to do, than have to deal with figuring things out on your own. The government survives on all the pesky details.

You do realize that without State protection violators of natural rights can face some pretty hefty consequences, right?

Go ahead and blatantly commit theft by driving on a private road. The rest of us can make your life a living hell through non-violent measures worse than anything the State can do.

Well, except kill you which it does like it's a bodily function for s-hits and giggles but I digress.
The thing that gets me about Statists is that their arguments are so easily destroyed.

Ayn Rand hated libertarians.

Don't even get me started what she thought of anarchists.

To the contrary, they are far more unbiased than the left/right sources normally posted here.

Do you, or do you not, believe that taxation is theft? If not, why?
No.... only ignorant people believe that. If you really believe that then why don't you just pack it up and leave? Find some completely lawless place to try to scratch out a living, maybe Somalia or something?

If you want to know how or why something came about such as public roads, you would go to the historical record and historians. Now most of them are left leaning, some are right leaning and some apolitical which balances out.

Aw shucks. Somalia has a federal government and a 10% national sales tax.

Dr. Tom Woods has a PhD in history from Columbia University.

I'll take his word for it.
