Why does the government get to order you around? Why are you obligated to obey?
There are a variety of platitudes and theories that are popular among average people. In this compact, to the point booklet, Andrew Kern takes them all on. Find out why overused phrases like "if you don't like it, leave" and "taxes are the price we pay for civilized society" are at best meaningless bromides, and at worst have no historical or theoretical ground to stand on. This is your guide to why the standard attempts you've heard at justifying government authority don't stand up to scrutiny.
