FSK, you may want to check the video below out.I'd already noticed that video. It's progress, but still short of the truth.
More people are espousing views similar to some of your own.
I regularly google "taxation is theft". It's interesting to see more and more people intelligently explaining "taxation is theft". It's interesting to see statists getting frustrated. Statists say "Why do people keep mentioning 'Taxation is theft!' We already logically refuted that."
They were making the State-approved Libertarian argument, "Government is way too big." They did not say "All taxation is theft, no matter what the purpose." They said "The authority of government is legitimate. However, it's way too big."
Walter Williams also writes for lewrockwell.com. On lewrockwell.com, they all seem to be market anarchists now. He probably was instructed to "tone it down" for his appearance on Fox Business News.
If you're an Austrian economist, it's frustrating to see how Congress and government mismanaged the monetary system. Austrian economists see flagrant corruption blocking reform. This naturally leads to becoming an anarchist.
I *DON'T* consider myself to be an Austrian economist. On mises.org, I got into disagreements leading to me being censored. Therefore, I no longer post there. They said "Mises and Rothbard never wrote about the Compound Interest Paradox. Therefore, it is false." If the Compound Interest Paradox isn't officially part of Austrian economics, then I'm not an Austrian economist.
Andrew Napolitano has the most Libertarian-minded show on TV. However, he's still pro-State trolling. It's encouraging and frustrating at the same time. Andrew Napolitano says "The Constitution is wonderful! If only politicians respected it!" rather than "It's all a scam! The Constitution is not a valid contract. All taxation is theft, no matter what the purpose."
Are some insiders intentionally pushing the limits of the "debate ceiling"? Fox Business News is the most Libertarian-oriented channel. They're still short of the full truth.
The "intellectual distance" between mainstream Democrats/Republicans and Libertarians is much smaller than the "intellectual distance" between Libertarians and agorism. You can be a Libertarian, and not have fully cracked your pro-State brainwashing.
There's a huge intellectual leap from "Government is way to big. If we only vote for the right people, things will get better." to "All taxation is theft. No matter what checks and balances you have, government is fundamentally an extortion racket. A government violence monopoly is immoral and unnecessary."
Andrew Napolitano self-published on the Internet before getting his own show on Fox Business News. I should try that. I'm better at explaining economic fraud than almost everyone. "Promote agorism via standup comedy" seems like a worthwhile experiment. I'm waiting to see if I relapse.
If Andrew Napolitano pushes the "debate ceiling", then maybe, in a few years, it'll be possible to discuss market anarchism in the mainstream media. Andrew Napolitano and Ron Paul are simultaneously frustrating and encouraging. It's frustrating, because they still promote the legitimacy of the State and Constitution. They are pro-State trolling. It's promising, because they are the most freedom-oriented politicians and mainstream media celebrities.
Do government insiders already know the real truth, and they're slowly leaking it?
