Non-Aggression Principle

Don't initiate force against others. Don't take things that aren't yours. That's pretty simple. These are the first things we learn as we are introduced to the world. It's the key to ensuring the equitable interaction between people.

The methods modern states use to govern violate this principle daily. It requires a lot of mental gymnastics to ignore this. Like those who wanted to believe the Ptolemaic version of the Universe, those who believe in the superstition of authority have to create numerous erroneous equations based in confirmation bias to convince themselves they are correct. The amount of nonsensical arguments to be refuted is enough to keep most from even trying.

Luckily, you don't have to refute nonsense. You just have to ignore it. Think for yourself.
