Rather than bemoaning the state of the world let's ponder, for a moment, on our own beliefs. The following are 14 questions that I hope you will find interesting. Try to answer in order and come to a definite conclusion before moving on to the next:
1. Is it ever good to break the law?
2. Can you think of a current example of a law that is already wrong? i.e. That it would be right for you not to obey?
3. Do you think it's right that you be forced to do things you are opposed to?
4. Is there something the gov does with money that you do approve of?
5. If someone e.g. doesn't have any children, don't need, don't want education, what should happen to them if they refuse to pay?
6. If you would allow them to refuse to pay tax would you extend that Right to everyone?
7. Would you apply this to everything on the list of things that people do/don't want? i.e. don't get the service, don't have to pay.
8. Is there any situation where gov should make people pay for their version of a service?
9. Do you agree it's bad to initiate beating someone up and stealing their money?
10. Do you agree people have the Right to defend themselves against someone trying to rob them (including hiring people to defend them)?
11. Do you agree there's anything the gov has the Right to do that normal people don't have the Right to do?
12. Does morality right/wrong apply the same to people with badges as to those without?
13. When it comes to gov, would it even be gov if it doesn't have special rights and powers? i.e. If we're all equal is it even gov any more?
14. Can you name anything that you want gov to do that you don't have the Right to do yourself (not ability, Right)? i.e. Anything that would be wrong if you did it?

Only you know for sure ... If you're not (a Statist) you may find these questions a good starting point for discussion with others ...
